Re: v2.504 Command Line for TWO panes

Thanks for taking the time to post the detailed macro for your backup. In my case, I'm GENERATING backups aplenty. It's cleaning out older backups each time the backups run past 4T in size. Keeping the backups from Drive Snapshot down to 2-4T is laundering just the one type of backups. I also use Sy...

Re: v2.504 Command Line for TWO panes

Nikos, I copied and pasted the command line from the batch file. So, it it's broke, it's not something wrong there. The two folders exist. I've tried it with both single pane and double pane layouts already running in the omnipresent x2. And as you know, I've put off x2 v3/4 due to a hatred for the ...

v2.504 Command Line for TWO panes

Not surprisingly, I'm finding that daily backups of the 'important' drives is gobbling space almost as quickly as I can empty it to accept new backups. Sooooo, I did a batch file to REMIND myself every Wednesday afternoon that I needed to do my 'laundry'. The thing is, I leave x2 running perpetually...

Re: What does $P expand to ...

Nikos, I modified my code to use the $> as a trial with a sub-folder relatively deep into the rat's nest of this tree. Tried it with clicking in the folder but not selecting a file, selecting a file and finally selecting all files (there NOT being a sub-folder in it). In each case, ant renamer flash...

Re: What does $P expand to ...

That being the case Nikos, then the expanded user command should expand fully to the correct command-line for Ant Renamer. I dl'd the code and looked to maybe rewrite the code and collect MORE files than the limit currently imposed, but it has a ton of specialized adaptations of components I have al...

What does $P expand to ...

I am using v2.5. So, put on your OLD version thinking caps. I have a batchfile that I'm trying to use with Ant Renamer to work on a folder's worth of files. A BIIIIG FOLDER's worth of files. I want to click at random on any file in a random folder, and have the full command work. It is this: > E:\ap...

Re: Blind feature ask for v4

Therein lies the rub Nikos. For the feature(s) that I need, I need a menu. So Macros will NOT work that way. AHK will be required. C'est la vie. It eliminates a reason FOR v4 from my perspective. It's not completely sale stopping, but I'm not looking to spend money AND a lot of time to improve what ...

Re: x2Filter in v4?

gulp!!!!!

Maybe if I use x2 2.x in a VM with access to the drives that NEED THIS VITAL AND POTENTIAL V4 KILLING (IF MISSING) ADD-IN. Looking forward to hearing of v4 users' adventures trying to make this work.

Re: Concurrent v2 and TRIAL v4?

Sounds like I'm trying to create a recipe for self-immolation. Will have to set up the trial on the laptop and do the testing there. It''ll be limiting, but you're not responsible for me not having a new machine to setup up the v4 trial exclusively as the working x2. Sigh. Thanks for defining the sc...

One of m'lord Kilmatead's toys. He wrote it, at least partly, to organize filtering selections. I use the Unique Basename choice a lot. GM

Re: Blind feature ask for v4

Nikos, Not to be contrary, but understand that. I've obviously been smart enough to create a user command that copies all selections to a specific drive. So, I have, currently in my toolbars, buttons to fastcopy selected files to drive C, and another one for drive D, and so on till I hit drive X. It...

Concurrent v2 and TRIAL v4?

Can I run v2 and TRIAL v4 concurrently or is that a registry file dumpster fire in the making?

Blind feature ask for v4

I don't have v4 yet. Never used v3. Mostly because there was a mixup over ribbon rubbish and all that. My fault for not asking the right questions ESPECIALLY since Nikos was trying to do the right thing by me. But that's been cleared up and I'm seriously considering v4 for the macro capability. Of m...
