Hi everyone, people are kind of close with the suggestions but I am more after an interactive application as opposed to a synchronisation based script or software.

I guess the tricky bit it is I am after something so simple that it is unlikely to have been coded or attractive to code something.

This would be exactly what I want except for I need the following options:

Specify on Command line source and destination folders and do not allow change in GUI

Get rid of the analyse option and automatic sync and just copy in the direction of the arrow and allow deleting of files.  It should just display the contents of both folders to select the files.

Perhaps a little less resource intensive (uses 30MB of RAM just at idle when first launched).

I got very excited when I saw the gui on this one, so close but so far at the same time 8-)

I thought of doing that and in fact I currently just use Microsofts command line robocopy, but I am hoping for a more selective and interactive method, but want to restrict which folders that can be source or destination and also restricting launching of files within the windows (which kills alot of filemanager type utils so far)

This is close but not quite.  I need something that does not need me to select the folders under each of the users names or even know them in advance.

Basically need it to parse all the user ids, start a copy but keep the path structure intact and only copy the My Documents, Favorites and Desktop folders and down for each of the users, even though there might be heaps more folders under each user (Temp etc) which I dont want...

No real restrictions over than to aviod the need for resident runtimes I guess, a simple compiled exe with use of common dlls would be best...  Just because running on a Citrix Server (Presentation Server 3) on Windows 2003 Server OS.

I havent been able to find anything yet after a couple of months of trolling but happy for any ideas...

Hi,

Would love a very simplified file copier with 2 windows vertically arranged and just a left and right arrow.  Each of the two windows would show the contents of a folder specified on command line or via .ini. 

If a user clicked on a file or selected a group of files and then clicked on a arrow pointing to the other window, the file would be copied.  Also possibly an option to select a file and delete it. 

The idea would also be that the files cannot be launched from these two windows.

This would be very useful in a Citrix environment over a wan where you want a user to copy to and from a local drive to a server drive but not launch the files or browse around a PC or server.

Thanks

Scott

Hi,

I would love some code that will go through C:\Documents and Settings and for each user copy their My Documents, Favorites and Desktop folder to another folder structure retaining their username.

eg

copy C:\Documents and Settings\Scott\My Documents to %Path I specify%\Scott\My Documents

I often need to do this and manual copying is just so slow and clumbersome...

Thanks

Scott
