Re: Hard link in batch

OK I reworked it a bit and now I can create the folder. Move the file into it. Create a symbolic link in the original directory. move "%dir%\!thefile!*.*" "%dir%\!thefile!\" mklink "%dir%\!thefile!%1" "%dir%" This will create the folder. Move the file into and then nothing. move "%dir%\!thefile!*.*"...

Re: Hard link in batch

Sorry about the late response.

I tried adding this to the end to make a hardlink but it fails with the statement below.

Code: Select all

  
  REM move all files that start with the same base name.
  mklink "!thefile!*.*" "%dir%\!thefile!\"

Code: Select all

The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Hard link in batch

Below is a script I have been using for some time. Not sure where I got it but I have tried to work in a hard link instead of move command but keep getting errors. To me as a novice it seems the commands would be simple enough to do yet nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated. @echo off se...

Re: Get folder size to continue

Now the folder size is being chosen.

Yet we are back to this once I take the echo out and try and make the torrents.'

Re: Creating Symbolic and Hard Links with a Batch File

I know I am posting to an old thread but the script that foxidrive posted worked well for me except for one thing. Is it possible to have it rename FILESINLOOP.txt to FILESINLOOPOLD.txt and when done creating FILESINLOOP.txt it scans FILESINLOOPOLD.txt for dupes and removes them from FILESINLOOP.txt...

Re: Clean-up code and some help

Either way that helped me out a bit. Was able to eliminate about 32 lines of unneeded code with that.

Sad thing is I can see easily how you got there, I just could not see it myself. I tried a few versions like that but looks like I gave up to easily.

Making bat do multiple files

I have a script that works well except that it only does one file at a time. I was wanting to ask if someone could help make it so that it works by either dropping multiple files on top of the batch, do the directory it is in when activated, or both. if not [%~x1]==[.epub] goto :eof START /w "&...
