I really love FAR manager and I use it all the time. So first of all thanks to all the developers.
I was thinking about file/folder synchronization and what would it need to handle (symbolic links, hard links, ACLs, attributes, NTFS encrypted files, open files, network shares... )
Then I had an idea: It would be nice if FAR could copy open files. I searched "shadow copy farmanager" but only found one topic. (I was hoping for a plugin or something)
What I came up with is a User Menu entry to copy selected files:
Code: Select all
Label=Copy files with Volume Shadow Copy Service Command=E:\bin\VSCS.cmd "!^!\" "!#!\" "!^!@!"
Colored versions available here: http://szikraistvan.no-ip.info/work/script/
I tested it on mail.pst, apache logs.. and it seem to work fine. Unfortunately xcopy doesn't seem to work with \\?\ paths.
Hope Shadow Copy will get into FAR 3.0
