Re: DropIt

jordy Is %ParentDir% necessary? the idea is that dropit either uses the known location of any files with same name e.g. "%ParentDir%\%FileName%*" for action with each and any filename found as a group = parent path\basic name without extension or passes that info to an external command which would ...

Re: DropIt

Hey @Lupo73, - if you're still around ;), a request please. Can you please advise "how to" or "add a function to" move all items with the same filename (but with different extensions) at the same time to the same folder regardless of size? For example: a Video file called "My Video File.mkv" and it'...

Re: DropIt

@jordy1955 glad I could help though its still a mystery to me exactly how each \d component works, I must RTFM. It would help if there was some "idiots guide to AutoIt RegEx" showing real world examples such as yours also be nicer if drop-it shows the "real time" effect on a bunch of files selected...

Re: DropIt

@KJD, just thought I'd let you know that I've sussed it. Needed to add (?i) to the start of the string. Works like a charm even with mixed cases :D

cheers

Re: DropIt

@KJD, no probs, I just duplicated the rule - actions included as they will be the same anyway. Extremely unlikely the s & e will be in mixed cases so only two rules req'd. Tested and working great. Once again thanks for your assistance.
:D :D

cheers

Re: DropIt

Thanks for that. I copied and pasted your string into the rules box exactly as shown and it worked!!! :D . Many thanks. Now, one more question if I can... How do I make it not case sensitive, If I use the ; separator and add a second string with upper case S & E, it doesn't work :cry: Do I need to a...

Re: DropIt

Hey @KJD, Tried your suggestions but no luck. Thing is, how do I format the string? does it need to be enclosed in (), [], {}, <> or "" etc?

Re: DropIt

Hey @Lupo, I'm having a little trouble moving TV episodes to a particular folder. The expression I'm using is "*.s*e*;* s*e*" This works for file names where there is a "." immediately before the s in s01e01 etc. However if there is no "." as in the second part of the expression, it is picking up wo...

Re: DropIt

Good. In the meanwhile I worked to the next version 6.2 and I'm considering to publish it. If you would like to test it, I replaced the option to "ignore files if size changes" with an option to "ignore files if in use", that may helps to better do what you need. This is the beta: http://www.lupope...

Re: DropIt

Hey Lupo,

Your suggestion of applying a "Modified Date" Filter to prevent DropIt from moving a file before it is complete works great. Many thanks for the software and response to my problem.

cheers

Re: DropIt

Hi All, New user to DropIt. Firstly let me say thanks for a very good product. I am using Dropit to relocate ripped movies (that i own). I use MakeMKV to rip the movie to a folder - this takes about 20-30mins per movie. Dropit is monitoring that folder and then moving the finished file to another ne...
