With the Z-Cron commands COPYFILE / COPYDIR and MOVEFILE / MOVEDIR, you can automatically copy or move local or remote files and directories.


The command COPYFILE copies a single specified file to a new location. MOVEFILE moves the file instead of copying it.


With COPYDIR you can automatically copy complete directories, including contained files and subdirectories, to a specified new location. MOVEDIR works similarly and moves the directory instead of copying it.

Copy/Move Files and Directories

When using these commands, you can optionally include the current date and time in the target directory name by using macros.

In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
