Hi,  cheesy

I was wondering if anyone knew of a program (or could write one) to help me with copying/pasting and moving files:

I get really frustrated when I copy alot of file across the network (GB+) and when I return it asks me 'read only' would you like to move the file? ect, and would you like to replace the existinf folder/file with the same name.

The program's purpose would be to:
  • Overwrite file with the same name, if that file is more recent than the one it is going to replace or if not newer - compare CRC/MD5 hash to determine if file is the same if not then prompt user  thumbs up
  • Overwriting a folder then check if files would be overwritten with same method above
  • Whilst moving read-only file/folders remove the read-only attribute
  • Maybe instead of prompting the file(s) could be move to a new folder in the destination called 'Suspect'

Many thanks!

Thanks for the quick response, (BTW mouser your're a great programmer)

I found a similar sort of program called PerigeeCopy http://www.xmission.com/~jstanley/pscopy.html it is released with source code... maybe someone could modify it to make it check the file comparision, and move suspect files.
