Hopefully someone out there can help.
This is what I'm trying to do. I have one folder (Folder A) with .zip's and .z0* (Anything from .z01 to .z09) and I want to move them to a hot folder (Folder B) I've got a .bat file that moves everything the .z0* first that the .zips (See below)
move /-y "c:\Folder A*.z0*" "E:\Folder B\"
move "c:\Folder A*.zip" "E:\Folder B\"
BUT here is the tricky bit (For me anyway)
Folder B is a hot folder that when files go into it a system picks them up and moves to a SFTP site which takes some time because of the size of the files. I have been told I have to move one file at a time when the file before has gone from Folder B and in order .z0* first then the .zip's at the end.
So can I do this in a .bat calling a .vbs or all of it in a .bat or some other way that can be run by task scheduler. Oh forgot to say that I need it to run once a week.
@ECHO OFF SETLOCAL SET "sourcedir=c:\sourcedir" SET "destdir=c:\destdir" FOR %%x IN ( 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 ip ) DO IF EXIST "%sourcedir%\*.z%%x" ( FOR /f "delims=" %%a IN ( 'dir /b /a-d "%sourcedir%\*.z%%x" ' ) DO ( SET filename=%%a CALL :moveslowly ) ) GOTO :EOF :moveslowly IF EXIST "%destdir%\*z*" timeout /t 1 >nul&GOTO :moveslowly MOVE "%sourcedir%\%filename%" "%destdir%\" >nul GOTO :eof
Only question here is
timeout, which may or may not be installed (version-dependent). If it doesn't exist on your machine, then one of the other delay mechanisms could be used like the
CHOICE method (also version-dependent) or the
