Move/Copy files with script
« on: September 13, 2023, 02:43 AM »
I have recurring tasks of moving and copying files from one path to another.
I would like to have a desktop shortcut (maybe even put it in the Windows task planner), where you just double click and the files are getting moved/copied.
I know, this can be done with a batch and robocopy, but i would like to have a progressbar and propper errorhandling.
Something like TeraCopy (there are many more programms that can copy/move files), but with the ability to call it from a file/batch/link, whatever.

Yes, atm. But I can not say how my workflows might change in the future. Best would be (as far as I can imagine) if it would be possible to call a program from a batch and put source and destination path as argument in it.
