Copying a folder to 2 destinations

Post by profess » 2013 Sep 14, 08:11

Hi all,

I know this is rather simple in nature, so bare with me.

I have a folder I would like copied to 2 or 3 places, then the folder could be deleted afterwards (or 2 copied then the last process could be a move? - but copying would be safer just in case the destination was full). How can this be done in x2? Is this a batch file I need?

Folder A - copy to - C:\dir
Folder A - copy to - C:\dir2
Delete Folder A

Or should I just look into a 'sync/backup' app. Recommendations on an app that will accept x2's $A $S etc. so I could multi select folders and have it run the operation.

Thanks all.

you cannot do all this in one step (unless you script it) but the idea is

1. copy source folder A (ctrl+C)
2. Hilight the target folder(s) -- in a scrap if need be -- and use Edit > Paste special > Multipaste
3. delete A

Ahh yes I forgot about multipaste. A lil messy but functional.

I'll have to look into this and an app. Maybe script it & save as a command for the toolbar.

Thanks.

Any ideas welcome.
