copy two files from one folder to many folders
« on: September 23, 2021, 02:55 PM »
I have a tree
Y:\folder1\folder2\exp<year>\compo\file1.doc
Y:\folder1\folder2\exp<year>\compo\file2.doc

I need to copy two files from folder
Y:\folder1\folder2\564.21\compo\file1.doc
Y:\folder1\folder2\564.21\compo\file2.doc

to many folders under the same tree
Y:\folder1\folder2\exp<year>

An utility to do this or similar tasks ?

Best Regards

You can try MultiCopy v0.1.0

https://github.com/p...blicdomain/multicopy

https://github.com/p.../releases/tag/v0.1.0

If you need something else added (i.e. another feature), I'm in to assist :Thmbsup:

It too simple. I can't create rules.
So I will need to point to several hundred folder where I want the original files to be copies

That is I can't proposed a tree like this :

Y:\folder1\folder2\<any subfolder>\compo\ where the original files must be copied if that folder is not an empty folder.

I think I need a RegEx utility or something.
My eternal problem

Note : perhaps a bat file with some wild options *.*

Okie, I'm creating a custom release (based on hard-coded "compo" path) right now, with condition on empty dir.

An ahk utility ?

A regular .exe program...

At the beginning I didn't know how to do, but slowly.....
AsusPortatil - 01_10_2021 , 12_11_09.pngcopy two files from one folder to many folders

I suppose that if I don't check the overwrite option I will not overwrite anything, but I would like the posibility to overwrite when the creation date of the .doc file is more recent.
That is overwrite if the file creation date is more recent in origin. By example in origin the file was modified in sept.21 and in target was last modified in oct.19 , so in this case I need replace or overwrite.
Can I have this ?
 :-* :P

Note : the program I am assuming i can use with other extension files like .ods , .xls in the same folder COMPO .

Yes, sure! Next version comes with it. Stay tuned.

That's correct :) Simply change the file or directory pattern before hitting the browse button.

Hello amigo, since your request overwrites files, should it have a "Backup on overwrite" check box option?

That's the only thing I think is left, unless you keep your own backups.

I don't understand well what you are trying to say.
It's not a backup. It's overwrite the target file when the original file to be copied is more recent that the one in the target folder.
 :-* :P

Note : if you want you can create a subfolder with a copy of the replaced file as a backup. Why not ?.
Or any improvement additional for copying with security, like a reverse module.
