Dircopy didn't return expected value

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've got a problem with DirCopy function :

When I do a DirCopy(C:\Dir1,C:\Dir2,1), if C:\Dir2 already contains a file with the same name of one in C:\Dir1, the return code is always a faillure. If I do the copy with Windows, no problem, but just some messages asking for overwrite.

Note : C:\Dir1 en C:\Dir2 contains subdirectories.

OS = Windows Vista SP2

Autoit : v3.2.12.1 (same problem on v3.3.0.0, and I dont want to upgrade now cause I'm using a lot of RegRead of Binaryvalues, and I don't want to rewrite / retest all my scripts for the moment >_< ) Didn't test with beta version.

That's because you didn't read the help file properly. You need to set the overwrite flag to 1.

Nop, I have already set overwrite flag to 1.

But I'd just fount where was the problem : in Dir1, a hidden directory called RECYCLER vas present. Don't ask me why, but it was this directory that returnd an error.

Thanks for help.
