    Move files automatically

    Locked

    by ecampos ·

    Netware would not recognized the syntax of a batch file in a w2k machine to move files from two network folders even though user has all trustee rights.
    batch file contents:
    move s:\folder 1\*.bmp s:\folder 2
    the .bat file works fine if the folders are local.
    is there a similar batch, script, etc. to accomplish this?

      move s:\folder 1\*.bmp s:\folder 2

      I notice there’s spaces in the folder names — does the batch file have them enclosed in quotes? Does the destination folder already exist? Does it work if you leave the drive letter off the destination?

      After your comment, I went back and placed the destination path in quotations and that did the trick.

      Thank you, you pointed me in the right directions, I overlooked the “”.
