I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Chacha,

Give this batch file a try. All text in red, you should adjust before running.


Code:
@echo off

Hi Guys,

I want to make one batch file which daily copies yesterday's files from one folder & paste it to another folder.

I.e.
C:/111 folder has following files.
1.zip had yesterday's date
2.zip had yesterday's date
3.zip had last sunday's date

now, when i will run batch file today, it only copies 1.zip & 2.zip & move to another folder C:/222

So C:/222 contains following
1.zip had yesterday's date
2.zip had yesterday's date


Please note , i have to run this batch file daily which should not require any changes.

Ok I'm totally at a loss on how to word this so I'm just going to write it out the best that I can...

First I have a batch file that I'm writing that will convert mp4 files to mp3 files (I have a lot) for a buddies band using ffmpeg.

Here's the code that I'm using:

ffmpeg -i folder\video.mp4 -f mp3 -ab 160000 -vn "\different folder\music.mp3"

what I would like to do is add to this so that I don't have to write out this code for every file I have... :/

I have the mp4 files in one folder and than the mp3 files are saving to another folder.

So here's an example of what the code will do if it isn't clear yet.

Folder 1:

video1.mp4
video2.mp4
video3.mp4

what it should do is grab video1.mp4 and convert it.

ffmpeg -i folder\video1.mp4 -f mp3 -ab 160000 -vn "\different folder\music1.mp3"

and than move onto the next one

ffmpeg -i folder\video2.mp4 -f mp3 -ab 160000 -vn "\different folder\music2.mp3"

and than the next one

ffmpeg -i folder\video3.mp4 -f mp3 -ab 160000 -vn "\different folder\music3.mp3"

It's going to have to grab the name from the mp4 file and insert it for the mp3 file.

I can get around pretty good in cmd if it's basic commands but when it comes to something like this I'm a little confused...

Thanks for the help in advance!
I'll see what i can do about searching some more on what I would have to do and if I find the solution I'll post it here if it isn't already answered.

A:Batch File that grabs file names from folder to insert into batch file

A DOS "for /f" loop should do the trick, although changing the filename extension for the output to do everything in one line escapes me at the moment.

Perhaps you could do a dir .\folder\*.mp4/s/b > mp4s.txt, then make a copy of that and edit each line to rename the file to the destination name, and save it as mp3s.txt. Then you just feed both the source (mp4s.txt) and destination (mp3s.txt) filesnames into the for /f loop which handles the ffmpeg conversion.

Quite a crude solution and you'd have to handpatch the destination filenames, but i can't think of how to get a source mp4 filename and then just change the extension.

Hello all , i am new to batch programming.

I wish to have a batch file to read .apk file from folder and then copy it to another folder. Then it should rename the copied apk file to test.apk

Here the file names in the e:\apps\ will be changing. So what ever may be the name , it should read the name of the file from e:\apps\ folder , copy it to d:\apps\ and rename it to "test.apk" . Test.apk is a fixed rename

Since this is still related to the other topic i posted, I figured I would just start another one instead of going on with the other one forever. Can someone please describe the process of getting a hosting domain & where to get one & for how much? I would like to know where to get the domain, how much it would cost per month/year, what kind of software I should use for the FTP sharing, & how to set the options up so this will work from any PC either inside or outside my local LAN. Also, if you do purchase a domain does that still put you in breach with your local ISP? I'm really new to the networking/sharing stuff & it's all a learning experience for me still. For whoever replies I really appreciate your help!

P.S. -- FREE PUNCH & PIE!! :grinthumb
 

A:File Sharing/Hosting

What is this for? Do you want to host stuff on your home computer or do you need a dedicated server with a fast internet connection in some hosting company?

At the simplest, you go to www.dyndns.org and register a free hostname. Then you configure your router or the computer to update the hostname whenever your IP address changes. Now you can access your computer from anywhere on the internet using your registered hostname.

Use some free FTP server software. Which one works for you, depends on what your needs are. Just try out some of the programs locally until you find what you like. After that you just set up your firewall and the router so that people can access FTP from the internet.

A:Batch File Copy Command

The copy command works on files, not on directories. So, for example, if you wanted to copy all the files in the Temp directory (NOT A GOOD IDEA, BTW - it'll copy a whole bunch of nonsense stuff) to your My Documents folder the syntax would be:

COPY C:\TEMP\*.* TO C:\Documents and Settings\ROWLEY.PRIVATE-3264A01\My Documents\*.*

This will copy everything in the C:\Temp directory to the My Documents directory that's indicated here. The use of the wildcards of *.* means that it will copy everything with entries before the . and everything after the .

It'd be a better experiment (IMO) to just copy 1 text file from the Temp directory to the My Documents directory. In this case it'd be:

COPY C:\TEMP\filename.txt TO C:\Documents and Settings\ROWLEY.PRIVATE-3264A01\My Documents\*.*

You'll end up with a document named filename.txt (if it exists in your Temp directory) in your My Documents folder.

Just for experimentation, try typing "dir *." (without the quotes) at the command prompt. It'll give you a listing of the directories that are located within the folder that your command prompt is open to.

Fellow Forum Members,
I have two external hard drives I'm calling Hard Drive A and Hard Drive B. Hard Drive A & B are mounted to external USB cradles. Both USB cradles are connected to the same PC containing Hard Drive C. My objective is to transfer all data files, folders, sub folders from both Hard Drive A & B over to two different hard drives on Hard Drive C.

I need help figuring out Windows 7 so I can accomplish the task above. I have heard of RoboCopy but don't know how to write the script. Does an application such as XYExplorer perform the task of batch copying from multiple external hard drives over to two different folders in an internal hard drive?

How would a RobyCopy Script look like that does the following:

Copy G:\hdA_data1 over to C:\data1_from_hdA
Copy H:\hdB_data2 over to C:\data2_from_hdB
Automatically Turn off computer after copy operation is done


Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Due to some drives being portable, windows unshares them all the time on reboot, so I'm wondering if there is a command line option (batch command) to share folders with a homegroup.

I already did some checking, and found that when you share a folder, it starts the process "C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" which writes to the register in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Shares"

I tried to export the keys, unshare the folder manually, and when re-setting the keys, but that did not work...

Anyone has an idea of how I can do this?

Hi all,

To increase our backup solutions, we have decided to backup our SQL database every hour to a folder within the C drive (we couldn't get it to backup straight to a USB drive). So now we need a way (batch file best solution?) to copy these files to the USB drive, lets say every 1.05hours just after they've been created?

Maybe we could copy the entire folder every hour and delete old backups that are in this folder and to the new place for the backups. (although I guess it won't work as it'll have the same folder name once it has been copied).

Or copy the individual files to that new folder although with this they have all different names so is it possible to copy the newest file to the new folder and then after this delete the old backups from a certain time frame?

Big thanks for your help!

A:Batch file copy made easy

I've been using robocopy for years. It does pretty much all of my backups at home and my laptop backup at work. Most things backup to an external hard drive (or a couple as I like to keep one offsite)

C:\Windows\system32\robocopy C:\users\user1\Documents E:\Backups\PC-name\Documents /MIR /E

That commands mirrors up the source and destination and gets empty folders thus preserving the directory structure.

Robocopy only copies files that have changed...thus subsequent copies are extremely fast.

I highly recommend it.

- copies only new (or modified) files from the TEST directory to a separate folder.

Any Idea?

A:a simple batch file for copy files and folders

To create a directory with the date and time as the name, In a batch file use:

set DirName=%date:~-4,4%.%date:~-7,2%.%date:~0,2%.%time:~0,2%.%time:~3,2%
MD \%DirName%

Then in the same batch file use robocopy to copy files to the new directory

robocopy TEST %DirName% /e

you need to add your own paths and read the robocopy help for the right switches you need.
By default Robocopy copies only files that don't exist in the target directory but because you are creating a new directory every time it will copy every thing in TEST

You could use the /A switch which only copies files with the Archive attribute set.

I have a usb that I copy files from to new computers. I do this all day and would like to make it quicker.
I will have an XP path and a Vista/7 path, but just worried about XP right now.
The problem is I don't know what drive letter the USB will be in. I thought there was a %thisdrive% switch of some time.

In addition it has spaces and I don't know how to replace spaces in the path. Here is an example;

copy f:\install\105 wallpaper\*.* c:\documents and settings\All users\Shared Docuemnts\Shared Pictures\

Hi,
I have a few questions about my simple batch to copy a Outlook pst file to an external drive. First, robocopy doesn't copy my file; Second, is there a way to prevent the taskeng.exe window from appearing; and Finally, I tried the command "copy" instead and it copies the file but the taskeng.exe window "hangs" and does not continue to restart outlook and therefore close on its own. By the way, the pst file is over 4Gb. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Hello,

Here is my question. I have several computers on a home group. All the computer have program X on them. I need to run a batch file to start the program with some arguments that need to be changed often. I would like to have the computers all run the same batch file from shared location to execute the batch file. This way I only have to modify the one batch file for all the computer. I tired linking a shortcut but it will not work correctly. Can someone help me out?

thanks you

A:Sharing a single batch file for all home group Computers..

Without knowing the contents of the batch file the easiest solution would be to create a batch file on each machine (with shortcut to the local batch so users won't meddle with the batch file contents) that copies the remote batch and runs it.


Code:
@echo off
REM copy batch from server for latest params
copy x:\remotebatch.cmd newlocalbatch.cmd
REM 5 second delay for file to copy
ping 192.0.2.2 -n 1 -w 5000 > nul
REM run it
newlocalbatch
Edit: You may want to add some error handling etc..

I require a batch file or free utility that i can redistribute from my web site to other users, (gamers) that will copy the contents of a directory inside their game to a new location and re-name the directory at the same time. Something like this;

Copy "Genesis\Vehicles\truck\diesel\4tonbaker" to "Genesis\Vehicles\truck\diesel\4tonbutcher"

The batch file needs to be run without the need for a command line box being opened, that is, if the user can double click on it or run it with a 'right click' that would be great. Problem there is, I maybe need an exe file not a batch file. The other part of the problem is that the folder to be copied may or may not be in the same location on every PC that runs the file. It may be the case that the 4tonbaker folder is on;
C:\Genesis\Vehicles\truck\diesel\4tonbaker or
D:Genesis\Vehicles\truck\diesel\4tonbaker or even
E:\Games\mystuff\Genesis\Vehicles\truck\diesel\4tonbaker

and I require the end user to have no need to know, just for the directory to be copied and renamed when and where it is found.

If possible I then want the batch file to perform a second task. I want to distribute a folder, lets say it is 4tonbutcher and in that folder there are files lets say doc1.txt, doc2.txt and doc3.txt

On any given users PC 4tonbaker has these same named files but the content is different to the ones in my folder 4tonbutcher, I want to update the newly created folder, 4tonbutcher with the new txt files I d... Read more

I'm trying to write a .bat that's supposed to handle the very simple task of copying a file to the desktop.

Something like:

copy x:\folder\file.ext [desktop]\file_backup.ext

The problem: [desktop].

It would be really easy if I could simply insert %desktop% the same way as %windir% etc. Unfortunately, %desktop% doesn't exist.

Using the variable for userprofile doesn't work either, because the user may have moved the desktop folder out of the docs & sets folder to any other location, and not necessarily on the same partition or drive.

It would be easy in a .vbs, but that won't work if the windows script host is locked down or disabled.

So it has to be a batch file. Does anyone know how to explain a .bat how to find the desktop?

I am wondering if anyone can provide the equivalent to this linux script. When run against a text file with one entry per line being the name of a directory, it deletes the named directories.

On linux, I run this against the text list.
#!/bin/bash
while IFS='' read -r line || [[ -n "$line" ]]; do
rm -R $line
done < "$1"

I am not sure how to make it do the same for Windows. I can do this, but I'm hoping there's a way to delete based on what's in the text file. Also, wouldn't want it to prompt for deletion of each, but to just delete.

@echo on
cd \
cd %USERPROFILE%
dir /D /N 0
pause
for /D %%f in (XX*) do rmdir %%f /s
pause

I'm working on a batch file that will download a file I maintain, look for a string of text, and if it doesn't find the string, rename a file or folder, or change the file or folder's attributes to read-only.

I think I can handle the last part, and I already have the ftp part done, but I am having a hard time finding any good resource for the text string lookup/IF statement.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm new here, please excuse my ignorance if I am posting in the wrong area or violating any rules.

I created this batch file to log certain users logins. It creates a text file to log in, but doesn't populate any of the data to it. Could someone please take a look at it and see what I did wrong. I'm new to writing batch files.

A:Solved: Batch file creates text file but does not populate data to it

target is a variable. You have to surrournd it with %% like any other variable.
Code:

C:\>set target=Squashman

C:\>if %username% == %target% echo %username% %date% %time% %computername% >> c:

Can file sharing be temporarily disabled in windows without affecting any other services. I guess what I am looking for is an "on or off " - switch" without having to disable file sharing the tradional way (rebooting etc). Is there a cmd.com option? Windows service etc...

I would just really like to know how to turn it off....lets say for 5 minutes or 10 minutes at a time and easily resume all shared folders and services.

I really hope im just not overlooking the obvious!
