Copy file(s) to variable usb stick station

30 May 2020, 04:38

I've got an raspberry pi 4, i need to copy files to any usb drive i put in my pc, now i have to manualy open 'my computer',open the usb drive letter and copy files.

Is there a way to do a copy script to a usb stick which i put in my pc?

First you have to know which letter the USB Disk using.
Then you can use FileCopy() like it is documented here https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/FileCopy.htm

But how can autohotkey detect which drive it suppose to write the files to?

I like to put in a drive and autohotkey detects when i activate filecopy to do it's work

Thanx :) i looked at it, and i can understand how this works (somewhat :p) but usb drive is variable, i've got tons of usb drives and all of them use another drive letter (at least most of them)

is it possible to detect the usb drive and copy 1 or more files to it from ssd -> variable usb drive

example your SSD is C:\
-1-Start this script
-2-connect your USB and see LastDrive > D:\ ( or maybe X:\ )
-3-asked : "Want you COPY = C:\TEST to D:\_BEELINK_2\TEST ? (Y/N )
can you check if this works ?

Example :
SOURCE= C:\TEST
DEST =%last%_BEELINK_2\TEST

Re: Copy file(s) to variable usb stick station

31 May 2020, 16:17

Thanx Garry, I will try to explain:

Currently i am enhancing a script which download some files from my Google drive to my desktop (which in w10 is always %A_Desktop% on every w10 pc...

this script should be running on other computer too (only w10) but their last drive isnt always the usb drive, like i have: Y and Z are webdev storages so the usb drive isnt the last drive in this case...

However i will try this script and hopefully i still can use it if there is no other way

To add to this:

I've remaped the webdav drives to F and G (ssd drives are C, D and E) when this script is launched and i put the usb drive in it works perfectly, but when the webdev drives are last, the files are copied there.....

so this can help alot but i would prefer it to work only with usb drives

can maybe use the drive infos , example if (serial1="12345678") or if (type1="removable") then break the loop and get drive letter ( drv )

He seems quite hesitant to check the DriveGet command as BoBo had already suggested at the beginning of this thread?!
Besides that, it shouldn't be a problem to create a "path-pattern" that is specific for that explicit USB-Drive. So to check for that file/folder-structure shouldn't be that tough afterward.

The easiest - semi-automatic - way I can think of:
  • Insert your USB-drive or
  • Select the file(s) you want to copy
  • Right-click your selection
  • From the opening context menu, select Send To > your drive
  • Done

@Eureka , dat is juist , maar ...
script is , if you want copy without thinking ... for stupids like me ... I like this automatism and see info about drive... I copy every day the same folders to external drive ( new created or modified )
