Hmm, that´s true. Maybe, because i used in in a similar way (copying folder structures) . The old command used a copy filter to
copy the folders structures. But i like the top-level only solution, so i´d like to have it combined with the
Copycreationtime feature, if possible.
You could do that by using the recursive version (i.e. the one with the Copy command), adding COPYCREATIONTIME=yes to the Copy command, and changing the filter it uses so that it doesn't go into any subdirectories (by adding a subfolder clause to the filter).
(You can't use the Copy command's arguments with the CreateFolder command, though. That'd never work. Commands only take the arguments they are documented as taking, not all the arguments from other commands.)
I'm sorry that asking a question here in this old tree.
I just found this solution when I was searching the forum.
So I have now created a button as is said in the instructions as well a filter for Recursive Version.
But it will not working for me when I try it out, I can see that the folders are copied over to the other lister, but when it's finished the folders disappears.
I have also tried the filter function in the copy menu, but it will not work there either.
Only difference I can see that I have three boxes in the filter that I can choose.
So what can I have done wrong here when the folders disappears?.
I think I just found out what I did wrong in the configurations, I missed to changed the first column to type and I had name.
Although the last column says Folders and not [Folders Only] as on your picture, I hope that's ok?.
Any way it seems to work now thanks for your help and time.
Hi! I've been using these custom buttons for just copying folders for a long time now and it's so useful, thank you for this!
I'm now in a situation where I need to copy ONLY the content from several selected folders into one target folder, but I'm having no success creating a button for this. Whatever I try it copies the folders with the files inside.
Anyone know how to set this up? Feels like it should be possible, right..?
Let's say I have folder A and folder B open in a double lister. Folder A contains hundreds of folders with random files in the them and folder B is empty. I want to be able to manually select a few of the child folders in folder A and have only the files from within those folders copied to folder B. Does that make sense? Maybe there is not even a need for a custom button, I just haven't been able to figure out how to do it.
