Search for selected files or track copied files

Post by *harrypotter1234 » 2019-02-05, 14:21 UTC

It it possible to select some files in one tab and search for them in the other, including subdirectories?

Or is it possible to track where you've copied your files so you can find them later in a shortcut or something?

That's awesome. Any way I can automate this: copy files and create a log file in the same folder as the original files?

Me think, no, not on default.
Only if you create your own copy command, TC can aid you by providing parameters.

-----------------pseudocode for MyCopy.vbs
For x in %S
- FSO.COPY x "%T"
- WRITEtoLOG "%P\_MyLog.txt" I just copied x to "%T"
Next

WRITEtoLOG(
....
)

-----------------------------



You could call MyCopy.vbs from a button, or assign a keyboard hotkey to it.
Of course, you have to code some error handling (e.g. for existing files) on your own too.
For more help, right click an button on the buttonbar, choose "Change...", and press [Help].
