Copying Files From Pc To USB Drive Showing Progress

Jun 7, 2011

I am very new to programming and I am having trouble getting my code to work properly.I am trying to write what I thought was a simple program, but I everything I have tried has not worked properly.I am creating a utility that will take installation and database files from one computer and copy those files to a flash drive so the flash drive will have the new version. The flash drives in question would either have one of two previous versions of the software on it or it will be blank. I decided to do this in two steps. First I check the computer for the new database and the flash drive for the old ones. I do this with the following code. [code] Next, I am deleting files from the flash drive if the old database is there and copying the files from the computer to the flash drive and showing progress on the progressbar. Here is where I am going all wrong. I have tried it a number of different ways, and unfortunatly (I'm kicking myself right now), I have not saved the code from the other methods I have tried.I have not been able to figure out how to get the background worker to work with what I am trying to do, though I have seen a lot of code over the past few weeks with examples of how to use it. It is a little above my head in terms of figuring it out by myself. So what I have used is the following code: [code]

Copying From Mapped Drive?

Jun 30, 2009

I read about the UNC path, but that doesn't seem to be making much difference, it may be that I need a user name and password for the connection, can anyone demonstrate code that allows username and password entry so that a file can copy to and from a mapped network drive or the UNC is "\serverarchiveJune"

VB 2010 - Thumb Drive - Formatting, Partitioning, And Copying The Image

Oct 24, 2010

I have to create a program to manage a large number of USB Thumbdrives. In short, the drives will contain corporate images used by technicians to prep machines in the field. I do not have to create the images as they are already provided. Since I have to create 50 plus of these at one time, I am looking at writing a program to automate the process. As it stands now, formatting, partitioning, and copying the image to each key individually is, as you can understand, not efficient time wise. I have already purchased two industrial quality 7 port powered hubs.

The plan is to be able to: Fill all 14 slots in the hubs with USB ThumbdrivesUse the program to select the drives to prepareHave the program format and partition the drives (bootable)Copy the contents of the image folder provided to the USB keys. The idea is to do the above by filling all the slots and hitting one button, then walking away to do other work. When done, the drives would be ejected, and the next set of 14 installed.

I have already created the User Interface. It consists of: 5 buttons (Scan For Drives, Format Drives, Build Drives, Build And Format Drives, Exit).One "Select Source" entry field to select the source of the Image Files.One Checked Entry List. This is where all available drives will be listed, and the one's desired to be checked.

Now, it has been 20 years since I did any coding, and all of that was done in languages that are pretty much dead today (Turbo Pascal, Clarion Professional Developer and R:Base), so to say I'm behind the curve is an understatement. While I was never a real fan of Basic, I have some experience with it. But today's VB.Net ain't your daddy's basic, and there's no way I have time to learn C or C++. I have the Express version of Visual Studio 2010, which should be fine for this project.

The drive is connected via USB and the problem I'm having is that, periodically, while my code is executing, the usb drive seems to disconnect and reconnect. (Nothing to do with the program, but the drive itself).I want to find a way to prevent these temporary drive reconnects from interrupting my code. IE, i want to insure that whatever read or write that is requested is actually executed even in the case of a temporary drive interruption.

Add A Progress Bar To Follow The Progress Of The Files In The Queue?

Mar 28, 2011

I have a filesystemwatcher which place files in a queue when they are created. From the queue the files are further processed (xml into SQL database).

The mechanism works fine, but I want to add a progress bar to follow the progress of the files in the queue: processing 1 of 10......2 of 10......3 of 10 etc.For testing, I created a batch file to simulate the creation of files, so the filesystemwatcher can to his work and place the files in the queue. When I tell the batchfile to simulate the creation of 20 files, I see that the amount of files in the queue change. For example;

VS 2008 - How To Make Progress Bar To Display Drive Free Space

Aug 22, 2010

I'm trying to make the progress bar to display the amount of free space C: has. I have successfully do so with my code which is:
Dim b As String
Dim c As String
Dim dvr As New DriveInfo("c:")
b = CStr(dvr.TotalSize 1000000)
c = CStr(dvr.AvailableFreeSpace 1000000)

As a last touch to this code I thought I would add a percent bar so it would look more professional. I did so with:
Dim Per As String = (c b * 100)
The problem is that it displays always zero percent why?

Batch Copying Of Files?

May 17, 2012

I am busy writing a application that i can set up a list of files to copy from one location to a remote network drive.

THe program has a list of "jobs" in a datagrid that it loops through and executes in sequence. What i have now is a background worker that reports the status of which job it is on (File 1 of 5) but i would like something that shows the status of the current copying file as sometimes large files can look like it's stopped on the network

I am using the structure, but have also tried the (which shows the status in a "windows" copy box)

So, what i would like is some guidance on how to create a function that will copy the file but also report back progress periodicly. I don't want to read and write byte for byte as im worried this will be too slow.

Also, is there a better way/function to use to copy files? Looking for best speed

Copying And Moving Files?

Nov 15, 2011

I have been creating a program that copies and moves files from folder to folder; I am using this sort of code;

fileToCopy.CopyTo("path here...")


FileToMove.MoveTo("path here...")

My problem is, when I am copying or moving a large file, It's taking so much time and my program is hanging until all the files are completely moved or copied. How about, using a progressbar instead, so that the user will be able to see the progress of copying and moving instead of the program freezing?

Copying Files From A PenDrive?

i have been searching Google for weeks now looking for help on a project, i'm not in school college etc, i am a network admin in a secondary school. Basically i was sick of teachers/pupils losing their pen drives and complaining to us that their work is missing, i set out to create a program to ease the backing up process to ensure this happened less often. i did manage to create a program using 'Get current directory' & 'Copy directory' and it works fine but not to the standard i want. Here is a clip of my current program, pretty neat for a beginner i think.I want the .EXE to sit on the pendrive and extract everything to a backup folder when it's run.Because (h:/) or whatever the letter, is a DRIVE, copy directory method wont work.

Copying Deployed Data Files?

I have three data files that I include with my project.  They are all set to Build Action Content and Copy to Output Copy Always.  I have a preferences form that allows the user to copy these files to a folder of their choosing.  It works fine in the IDE.  However, when deployed one file will copy but the next returns an error the the file cannot be found.  In the following code block a deployed application will copy ABW11Data.sdf but cannot find 100610_40.dtb or 2118@005.dtb. They are in the deployment files and I can search and find them in the clickonce installation although they are not in the same place as the ABW11data.sdf.

If My.Application.IsNetworkDeployed = False Then
My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath + "ABW11Data.sdf", TextBoxFolder.Text, True)

Copying Files To / From Portable Device

Feb 10, 2010

I have run into a problem with a couple of the "Sync" applications I wanted to create. In both instances, I am trying to connect a Portable Device to my computer and access it using VB.NET. One application would pull the pictures in from my camera, rename them, and put them in folders according to their date taken. The other would place the podcasts I have downloaded onto my Mp3 Player. I have the logic for both so that if I run it on two Windows directories, for example (C:Source and C:Destination) but when I try to access the Portable device using a directory browser, the "OK" button is disabled. Is there any way to access the directories on such a device?

Is there a way to copy files where it gives you the option to overwrite all and show graphically the files being copied, in much the same way when copying files within windows.What I have at the moment is this:

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(DataDirectory.DataSource, BackupPath & "Restel.bak", True)
For Each FileFound As String In My.Computer.FileSystem.GetFiles(SystemDataPath & "", FileIO.SearchOption.SearchTopLevelOnly, "*.rtf")
FileName = My.Computer.FileSystem.GetName(FileFound)
My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(FileFound, BackupPath & "" & FileName, FileIO.UIOption.AllDialogs, FileIO.UICancelOption.ThrowException)

which overwrites automatically or shows it graphically prompting each time if the file already exists.
