Hello,

I am currently trying to copy one file to multiple drives using a VBS script I have the code for copy to one drive but would like to make it copy file to multiple at the same time. The drive letters that I am using are P > X

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I seem to be having a issue with this.. Thanks

I have attached current code as a example
Const OverwriteExisting = True

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

objFSO.CopyFile "C:\test.exe" , "P:\", OverwriteExisting

This should do it.


Const OverwriteExisting = True
 

For i = 80 To 88

    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    objFSO.CopyFile "C:\test.exe" , Chr(i) & ":\", OverwriteExisting

Next

To elaborate, I used the Asc function to get the decimal ASCII value of the letters P and G, e.g.
WScript.Echo Asc("P")WScript.Echo Asc("X")

This returns values of 80 and 88.  (There are also tables available online where you can look these up.)

I then used a For...Next loop to iterate through the numbers 80-88.

The Chr function converts from the ASCII value back to the character.

Thanks Sage..

If I wanted to change this up a bit and have it actually copy to a IP on a seperate Domain how would I go about that. This will end up being scheduled to run in the early hours of the morning.

The current process that I have is Map the drives - Copy the files - Remove the Drive mapping.. all items are completed via a VBS file.

Thanks

You would do better to skip mapping the drives and just copy the files using the UNC paths.

You could put the target paths in an array and then copy to each of them, as below.  Run the scheduled task under an account which has permission to write to the destinations.


Const OverwriteExisting = True
 

arrTargets = Array("\\192.168.100.100\share\","\\192.168.100.101\share\")
 

For Each strTarget in arrTargets

    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    objFSO.CopyFile "C:\test.exe", strTarget, OverwriteExisting

Next
