A couple of free Gui front ends for XCopy
« on: September 18, 2011, 04:28:47 PM »
Links to a couple of free Gui front ends for XCopy.

The first is in AutoIt3


Each check box has the description rather than the actual switch.  All the action takes place in the Gui. (Edit: not quite.  Shows a progress bar for setting the options then generates a command prompt. I tried it once and it seemed to work. It does check the target for sufficient space before copying.)

The second is an .hta script


I recommend the modification I noted on that thread.  It provides BrowseForFolder with the edit line rather than forcing you to click down the tree.  This is the Tech Republic .hta script. The check boxes show the actual switches.  But mouse hover gives tooltip explanations.  It generates an XCopy command line rather than showing progress in the Gui.

If you only use xcopy occasionally you may find them useful.
A bit easier to read the switch descriptions than off the command line help display.
