copy with subdirectories

Postby Nikosp » Fri May 31, 2013 2:26 am

Is it possible to copy a directory and all subdirectorys are inside with tbexplo ? I am talking something like xcopy with /s switch.
I've tried mark a non empty directory that includes files and folders inside but when i paste somewhere it dosnt seems to work.Looks like it works only with files. Do you plan any update for that in future ?

There has been a correction done in the last release for that.

Thanks Eric!
Is it possible to get corrupt files when you copy files from 3tb HDS (With GPT) to other Hard DIsks External or internal?
Im say that cause im little scary because of the limitations of windows xp (No GPT Support and Big Size of an 3TB HD).
I know as you say to me BootitBM access the disk but should i be worried for file corrupt errors when make copying ?

If a copy of a file fails from some reasons, then it will be deleted from destination.
Under tbexplo, if you copy a full directory, and a copy of a file fails (so not copied at all), then the copy of the directory won't stop but continue until last file found. As a consequence, some files may be missing. Just that tbexplo won't tell you how many files failed...
However, you can compare the source directory with the destination one, by pressing again (Ctrl+V), and select the option to compare...
