Robocopy Quirks

Old-fashioned, but I still use batchfiles to automate tasks on my computer. One of them is a backup mirroring script, using the robocopy command. Recently I wanted to add a folder from C:\Program Files\appname\ to the backup, so I added the following line to the backup-script:

Robocopy "C:\Program Files\appname\" "\\SERVER\Backup\LAPTOP\appname\" /MIR /XJD /R:8 /W:15 /MT:32 /BYTES /V /NP /LOG:log-LAPTOP-appname.log

However this did not work, what’s the problem? Who knows… but the solution is to add a space before the closing end-quote. So just use:

Robocopy "C:\Program Files\appname\ " "\\SERVER\Backup\LAPTOP\appname\ " /MIR /XJD /R:8 /W:15 /MT:32 /BYTES /V /NP /LOG:log-LAPTOP-appname.log

On another note, check this, and use (also note the * and not *.* !!!):

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" u -r -up0q3r2x2y2z1w2 -mx=0 -password Z:\ "C:\Somefolder\*"

That’s all folks!
Have a nice day…

Pin document to taskbar in Windows 11

Same problem as this one?
” under Windows 10 I could drag & drop any file (e.g. docx or xlsx) to the Word/Excel icon, which is pinned on my taskbar. When righ-clicking on the Excel icon, I could see my pinned Excel files. Same with Word: I saw all my pinned documents. Windows 11 doesn’t let me drag & drop files to the pinned Microsoft App in the taskbar anymore. Please note, it is not about pinning the Excel app to my taskbar or pinning a document as an app to the taskbar: it is about pinning a DOCUMENT to the pinned Mircosoft app. “

The answer:

IDE1006 Naming rule violation

Thank you visual studio with your strange default settings, causing the error/warning all throughout my code: “IDE1006 Naming rule violation: These words must begin with upper case characters”.

Go Google, find this, and solve it actually like so:

  • By going to Tools > Options… > Text Editor > Basic > Code Style > Naming
  • Click ‘Manage Naming Styles’, add new style ‘camelCase’ (or whatever else you require), and save.
  • Set the Required Styles to camelCase and save by clicking OK
  • Thank You Microsoft!

Have a nice day!
