Teracopy/Ultracopier Integration?

Post by reelismism » Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:16 am

:?: There are many situations where it would be VERY useful to send files direct to Teracopy or otherwise from Everything.

I've seen options to send files from Directory Opus to TC: copy or move from current place.

https://resource.dopus.com/t/copy-move- ... acopy/5024

Is this possible with Everything?
Through shortcut or otherwise?

Thanks!

Morgs

EDIT: Here's the txt file that open from TC when you click Directory Opus integration:

Copy this code to the clipboard, go to the Directory Opus, and
paste "Copy" button to the toolbar in the Customize mode.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<usercommand backcol="none" textcol="none">
<label>TeraCopy_CopyFile</label>
<tip>Copy files with TeraCopy</tip>
<icon1>%ProgramFiles%\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe,1</icon1>
<function type="normal">
<instruction>%ProgramFiles%\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Copy *{allfilepath|filem} {destpath}</instruction>
</function>
</usercommand>

Repeat with this code to insert the "Move" button.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<usercommand backcol="none" textcol="none">
<label>TeraCopy_MoveFile</label>
<tip>Move files with TeraCopy</tip>
<icon1>%ProgramFiles%\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe,2</icon1>
<function type="normal">
<instruction>%ProgramFiles%\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Move *{allfilepath|filem} {destpath}</instruction>
</function>
</usercommand>

Without knowing Teracopy/Ultracopier and based on just your Directory Opus example:

Directory Opus is a dual pane filemanager. You copy /move /etc files from side A to side B.
So if you copy, source as well as destination are known and those can be "fillled in" as parameters for Teracopy (see your example).

If you use Everything to copy files, the destination is unknown to Everything, so can't be done.

But there is good news too:
These copy utilities tend to have an option to replace the regular Windows copy-routine alltogether. That way ALL copy actions will be handled by Teracopy/Ultracopy/ ... , including the ones from Everything.

Hi, thanks for reply, yes I'm totally aware TC/etc can replace copy/move.

The point is I don't always want to use TC, and having the option to control from Everything would be very helpful (large files, several hundred or thousand).
There's no way possible to choose a DIR copy/move destination from Everything?

1. Mark the folder(s)
2. Menu "Edit" -> "Advanced" -> Advanced Copy to Folder... | Advanced Move to Folder...

Thanks, and the regex could specify to use TC?

Any tips? (no idea myself!)

No, but here is an overview of the possibilities for using Everything <-> TC.

You can use TC-parameter ed: or ev: in "Find Files"-window in TC -> Commands - Search... - field: "Search for:"
to be able to search with parameters of Everything --> in TC: viewtopic.php?p=20711#p20711

TeraCopy integration in TC:
In the TC-Forum there is a large number of contributions - if interested ask there.
I am sure that you will get a well-founded answer there within a very short time.

Ahh, unfortunately, it's only now that I see that you meant by TC ... TeraCopy and not the Total Commander (Shareware file manager) :? .
Please consider this article as irrelevant.

Thanks for your efforts! Any tips to get advanced Copy/Move sending via TeraCopy? :?:

How to integrate TeraCopy into Directory Opus you have linked above yourself.

In my opinion you should now find out how to use Directory Opus with "Everything",
- so that you can find the files/folders in Directory Opus with the support of "Everything"
- and then use TeryCopy to copy/move files/folders in Directory Opus(!)

E.g. Google query: directory opus everything search
This is the first entry in the list
https://resource.dopus.com/t/search-eve ... ation/9861
with a link to
https://resource.dopus.com/t/searchever ... -v4-0/8894
Furthermore, the following is probably interesting:
https://resource.dopus.com/t/fast-searc ... hing/21974

Maybe that'll help you already.
Otherwise I would get smart directly with Directory Opus (Forum?).

(Just by the way: As described now, it works with the file manager Total Commander).

I just tested TeraCopy because I would expect TeraCopy to have some shell integration of it's own.
Results:

Slect some files in Everything
Right-click the files
2018-12-06 20_39_32-Window.png
2018-12-06 20_40_41-TeraCopy 3.26.png

I didn't bother to change the UI language to English, but it says: 9 files selected. The first button is "Copy"

Conclusion: No need for further complications :)
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Ok, all well and good, also FYI - I just discovered with Teracopy installed you can tick the "only when scroll lock is off" option, so if scroll lock is on Windows uses default copy/move.

Yet, I'm still looking for an answer as to how to use "advanced copy to" and regex options.
I.e. Can I use this to copy all wildcard * folders (I have a bunch starting with 'R._') and copy these to external drives?
Teracopy is the best tool for this repetative task (yes I could sync, but it's fiddly and gave up on Sync years ago after errors with files, and/or overwrites).

Example: See picture <-- click (I could enlarge the image with CTRL + mouse wheel to the desired size.)
- Copy folders FROM: I:\Daten\ TO: I:\zzz\
- Folders: "R._" and "R._a"

- Input line of "Everything: folder:regex:^R._
  Attention: Don't know how to exclude irrelevant folders (see picture); see also: https://regex101.com/
  (without RegEx: ... Try ... folder:R._)
- Mark all files --> only which begins with R._
- Edit - Advanced - Advanced Copy to Folder...
- New Format -> Change to destination folder e.g. I:\zzz (see picture) -> ☑ Regex -> OK
  - OR -
- New Format -> [ ] Regex -> ▶ -> Browse for folder... I:\zzz -> OK -> OK (= the same as "Edit" - "Copy to Folder...")

The copy action is carried out via "Everything" and not with TeraCopy.

If you want to perform the copy operation with TeraCopy, then
- Mark all files --> only which begins with R._
- Right click in the marked folders - TeraCopy...
