Done.  Really slick batch file work, too, 4wd.



I liked this idea so I decided to give it a try. But I can't get it to work!
I get an error:
"Choice is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file."
What am I missing?

Tested on my slightly infamous Win XP system.

choice  :)

MS in their infinite wisdom included the DOS command in all versions of Windows from 3.1 and DOS 6.x onwards except 2000 and XP.

You can grab the command from a set of DOS 6+ disks - I've attached it below for Windows x86 only.

Also, I'm sorry to say, v9 SHA-1 calculation doesn't work due to the lack of Delayed Expansion, (enabling limits using ! in filenames), so I'm writing a small hash program so I won't have to use fciv.exe which is why I have to use the for loop to get the value I want.
Why they couldn't just output the hash value without any fluff is beyond me.  :-\

So, I should have another v9 up with a separate hash program later today.

Spoke too soon there - give me a couple of hours though  ;)

OK, back with v9.5:

* No longer requires, so it should work OK on W2k and XP.
* Now has a dedicated hash program so the SHA-1 comparison works properly, (put it in the same folder as the batch file).
* Checks to see if the Source and Destination are the same, it'll exit if they are.
