Wow! You definetly went way above and beyond...even expanding past what I asked for (I tried to keep it as simple as possible and figured I would try to tweak it later on).....I can follow your instructions and can even see how I could adapt them for my movies folder to do a similar job.
Right on. I'm glad you found it useful.
The only thing I might have issues with is if I use copy I still need to clean up the from dir at some point.
Of course. I just suggested that until you got your feet wet with what File Punter can do.
One question.....if I only wanted to get the files that are 24 hours old or more how would I go about that...obviously the program itself isn't going to do it unless there is a regex to check for date modified.
Unless there is date information in the text string you're matching, you're pretty much on your own in this regard.
I wonder would it work if the from and to were the same directory just to organize the files?
I would highly recommend against
using the same folder for source and destiation.
I'll assume you have a dedicated download folder of some sort. Given that, I'd have two additional folders dedicated to being a source and a destination. Then, I'd process them like this:
- Move some files from your download folder into the source folder.
- Run your File Punter routines.
- Double-check your destination folder for accuracy.
- Manually merge the destination folder contents with your final storage area (file server, etc.)
Sorry if I asked something obvious and thanks again for your patience and willingness to share knowledge.
You're welcome. I'm glad to help.
BTW, you might want to check out TheRenamer
. IMHO, it's the best TV show renamer out there. I use it myself. It also does movies, but I don't use it for that. Anyway, you might find it easier to use than File Punter for your needs.
