VS 2010 : Copy A File To Folder?

Aug 22, 2011

I'm trying to write a program where people can click a browse button, click a file to copy, and then click a second browse button and click a destination folder. I've tried

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(TextBox1.text, TextBox2.Text)

and get the error "Could not complete operation since a directory already exists in this path 'C:UsersSamDesktop'."

FileCopy TextBox1.Text, TextBox2.Text
gives me "The target file "C:UsersSamDesktop" is a directory, not a file."

Both methods work if I put C:UsersSamDesktop'filename'.'extension' in the destination. But I want the user to be able to select the destination without having to type a new file name.

Writing File/Folder Sync Prog, Result Text Boxes Not Updating Untill After All File Action Is Done Even Though Update Code Comes Before Copy?

Apr 12, 2011

I am working on a program using VB.Net 2010 which will enable me to setup groups of files & folders for back up with syncing capabilities etc. I have a concept program which is based on some sample code I found out in one of the VB.Net forums. I have modified it from a command line based program to a form based program. At the moment I consider this code to be a "concept" program which once I have the various copy/sync routines developed and debugged will be integrated in to another program I wrote for
creating "Back Up" groups to automate the process. There are some 3rd party programs that do similar things that I want to do such as Microsofts Sync Toy, but none of them offer the grouping and exclusions options that I am going to program in to this backup/sync program.

So here is my problem, I have the included code taking two folders, a source and a destination, and copying everything from the source to the destination. It will skip over any unchanged files/folders and will delete anything found in the destination folder that is not found in the source folder and it will update all files in the destination folder that have a newer version in the source folder. In other words it will mirror image the source to the destination but will be smart enough not to copy unchanged items from the source to the destination thereby saving a lot of time. The sync part of the program is working fine, the displaying of the progress and results is not.

I'm trying to move a lot of pictures from FOLDER A to another, FOLDER B. However, some of the pictures already exists in the FOLDER B. This stops my program saying it cannot copy the pictures over because they already exist. I'm trying to make it so any pictures from FOLDER A will copy over the pictures in FOLDER B if they are similar in name. Like... Folder A's pictures will just replaced the Folder B pictures if they have the same name. I was told to use the System.IO.File.Copy tool. Here is my code.

C# - Copy File With Specific Extension With Creating Folder Structure?

Jun 15, 2012

I want to copy files with a specific extension (for example .config or .exe). It should create a structure of nested directories, and then insert each file into a specified place in the directory hierarchy. Ideally I would just specify a parent directory for each file and a parent directory for each directory and it would build it.

I need any existing utility or batch file or power-shell script or C#/VB .Net code to perform this activity.

VS 2010 Opening Folder If File Exists In Folder

Oct 6, 2011

Having difficulty with the module below failing on line 21. It is telling me: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002) Basically what it is designed to do is look for a directory, if that exists then look for a file in that directory. If both = True then it should open the folder to browse the files. I believe the issue is with the "Program Files" being 2 words since the script runs using a root path, but I'm not sure how to format the path correctly to make it work?

Copy Folder From %appdata% To A New Folder

Jun 20, 2011

I'm trying to write a small script that will copy a folder (named .minecraft) to a new folder (doesn't exist, but I want to create a new folder called .minecraft_backups). The current code I have is:

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyDirectory("%appdata%/.minecraft", "%appdata%/.minecraft_backups", True)

I get an error saying: Could not find directory '%appdata%/.minecraft'. I'm guessing it's because of the %appdata% shortcut. Is there any workaround to do this? The reason for this is because obviously if I don't enter %appdata% and enter the full route to the directory I need to enter the users username for the computer.

VS 2010 Copy File With Progress

I am wanting the most efficient way to copy a file with a progress bar updating the copy percentage.

This is the standard copy code I am using:


This is very fast and efficient. However, I cannot report the copy percentage.
I have tried many functions that read and save a file by opening up the filestream and then looping while reading/writing the data. This enables me to report the progress.

Here are the functions that I am using:

Public Sub SaveBinaryFile(strFilename As String, bytesToWrite() As Byte)
Dim position As Integer = 0
Dim BufferSize As Integer = 4096

VS 2010 - Copy And Rename File From Directory

May 14, 2011

I am making a program where I want to copy & rename a file. I want to copy a file from a directory which I can choose (by OpenFileDialog1.FileName), then copy or move it to a directory. This directory has been newly made and named (progdirCollin). Let's say the file is called cv.pdf then I want it to be moved to the new dir and rename it Collin.pdf. The extensions can also be .rtf or .doc and I want them to be left unchanged. So I want to copy or move a file, rename it, but keep the extension of the file, which can be all kinds of file (vb.pdf to collin.pdf or vb.txt to collin.txt.)

Explained :
1. Put in the name of the person = V
2. Pick a file with the openfiledialog = V
3. Make a directory with the name of the person in the appdir = V
4. Copy / Move the file to the new directory = V
5. Then rename the file to the persons name, but keep the .doc / .pdf / .rtf etc = ?
All V = Done
