Diropus question.

Might be a stupid question, but is there anyway to mark the same files on the right as I have selected on the left?


Let me explain. When updating my WHDload collection, I mark the new folders on the left to copy to the right. Usually it asks if I want to overwrite because its an updated game and not a new one.


If I just select "All" there to overwrite everything, I might be left with old files in the destination dir if they had been removed from the new version.


So what I would like to do is select all new games on the left and have them being selected on the right as well, so I can delete them all first without finding them and selecting them manually.


I know I can do this in a shell using various sync commands but I'd very much like to do it directly in diropus =)


Thanks!

Different paths but source and target have the same directory name?

Some (ARexx) scripting should do the job but it is easier to use a sync command like BackUp instead. Just add a button, menu entry or hotkey with the sync command. On the other hand if the source and destination directories are known then a script what uses the sync command can do the job automatically. You can start the script from DOpus if you like.

This archive contains a bunch of ARexx scripts that expand Opus 4:

"SelectSameName" should do what you need, make sure you read the documentation on how to set it up and what libraries it requires.

Tried that, thanks. Only seems to work on files and not folders through. If I mark a folder with its corresponding .info file, it only marks the .info file on the right.
