#2950 closed Bug (Works For Me)

Dircopy cannot copy own dir or subfolders on network drive

Reported by: woldhek Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Dircopy lock subfolders Cc:


Dircopy stops while copying its own directory with subfolders or subfolders from there.

Consider network drive:


autoit script is in folder2.

script used:
DirCopy ("P:\folder1\folder2", "C:\Users\Public\folder",1)

script copy`s files from folder2, and stops without warning and did not copy folder3 en folder4.

So i thought dircopy can not be used if script is in the same dir.

But i changed the script (in folder2) to copy folder3:
DirCopy ("P:\folder1\folder2\folder3", "C:\Users\Public\folder",1)

Again the script stops again.

If i run the script from another folder on the P: drive, say P:test, everything is ok.

Looks like the autit-script locks all subfolders from where you start it?
