Copy with batch - duration needs to be outputed to *.txt

Specs: Windows XP
Hi guys,

i have a little challenge i´m sitting for.
1) I have to copy a file from local PC to network-share e.g. X:
2) The duration of the copying needs to be output to file *.txt

if you can help me out with that, it would be a fast step to my point..

And.. can you tell me, if it is possible in batch, to do a userlogin? I mean, that i can get a duration, how long a user needs, to be finished with his logonprozess on a machine?

Thank you a lot for sharing your knowledge :)

Wäre aber nicht böse für feedback zu der frage, ob man einen logon auch über batch initiieren kann..

I think this means the initial question has now been answered but the post still requires assistance on the user login part.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Within the batch you could put an estimate based upon the progress.

for example within the batch

script for first process
echo Process once complete: estimated time left 2 minutes

script for second process
echo Process once complete: estimated time left 1 minutes

script for third process
echo thank you for your patience finishing log in process now.

at least that way the user knows that they are being handled. most people will be willing to wait if it looks like they are progressing.

Thank you, Derek. And yes, you are right.. the initial problem is solved..

mikelinus: i just did it with robocopy.. :) But thanks ;)

Never the less, i still have to do a login prozess automatically. For that issue no one can find a solution?

Thank you for supporting me.. :)
