copying entire drives


Recommended Posts

I am currently trying to automate the "backing up" of usb drives.

I don't want to use the usb dumper, because it is detected by av.

So, I am trying to do it via a batch file.

When I run this command however,

xcopy "D:*.doc" "c:files" /s/c/q/r/h

it always prompts me whether I want to copy files or directories.

Is there a way to make it automatically copy all documents from drive D *without* prompting?

Thanks.

you probably want to make the paths relative (as far as possible).

You see, I'm trying to make a usb dumper batch file which is always looping in the backround. So I can't make them very relative.

This works:

xcopy "A:*.doc" "C:folder" /s/c/q/r/h >null

Only, I get popup error messages when a drive does not exist. Is there a way [registry, etc] of disabling/masking these error messages safely?

Thanks.

Your better off using VBS, it's will work better for what you are trying to accomplish and it's quite easy to learn the basics which is all you will need. To the best of my knowledge there is no simple solution for doing this in batch.

This was my code for the picture rip thing i wrote up in batch a while back. It's commented very well so you should be able to go through it and edit it to your liking. You will need to also get the portable uharc if you want it compress it and then the far.jpg is actually forfiles.exe and that can be downloaded here http://www.dynawell.com/reskit/microsoft/w...00/forfiles.zip

Hi!

Actually, I've coded something that copies the entire drive or even only specific filetypes from any removable drive.

DOWNLOAD

Just doubleclick it, and it'll ask you.

But:

I've tested the syntax. Doesn't matter if I try

xcopy "D:*.doc" "C:files" /S /C /Q /R /H

or even

xcopy "D:*.doc" "C:files" /S /E /C /Q /R /H /Y

it copies all files to the directory.

Have you created the directory before?

Obi that is hella fast too. Mind releasing the code. XD?

hi,

I like the USB copier (it´s so easy to use). But do you know how can I make it autostart when Windows start. And If I want to copy my pen drive everytime I put it in the computer, what I have to do (I donñt want to click twice everytime I Insert my pen). thank you very much for the app and if you can make this change it will be better

i got something i made i can try to find it again

it copies all the files and folders from a certain folder on the usb drive to the pc and makes a service that starts a bat files that runs forever on the pc that detects new drives and copies the files and folders you copied from the usb to the pc back to any new drive and so on and so on

its still kinda in my personal beta stage as for i have yet to find a good enough reason to finish it

plus i guess if it fell into the wrong hands it could be used as a worms so i dont even think the hak5 admins will want me to post that code here

idk its up to them

have a admin quote this post and say yes its ok to post or no its not and i will do as they say
