getting xcopy to work

Post by Davi » Sat, 02 Aug 2003 00:59:15



I'm exectuting the following:

xcopy "C:\Documents and Settings\drschwartz\Favorites*"
C:\atmp\off_fav\ /E /K /I /C

While the structure is getting copied, none of the actual files are
getting copied. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
David

David:

Unless all the file names start with "Favorites" (I suspect it is a
directory name) you will have to change the command to:

C:\Documents and Settings\drschwartz\Favorites\*.*
                                         ^       ^_____All Files in
                                         |_____________"Favorites" Dir.

1. Better XCOPY than XCOPY

  Hello,
 I've recently started working on a better XCOPY than XCOPY.  I've got
some ideas regarding archiving schemes and not copying if the file
won't fit in destination drive. I hate those Disk Full errors.  Anyhow
I'm down to the part where I need to write a copy function. I'd like
to check the available memory and then copy as many files as will fit
into memory.  Then I'd write from memory to disk. This is what COPY
and XCOPY seem to do.  The problem is that I'm relatively new to DOS
and this whole problem of having a segmented memory. Is there some
conventionally accepted way to perform FAST, EFFICIENT copying
enmasse? I'm using both Turbo C++ and MSC 6.0 (NOT intermixed, but
parallel). Thanks!
