Is there a way to autorun a save *.copf job? I'd prefer if it could automatically copy files and folders when changed, but would settle for a batch command or something that I can autorun at set intervals. I don't want to have to load the software and manually copy the files and folders. I want an automatic process that can be repeatedly scheduled or performed on demand as changes occur.

Happy to see that 'Batch Operation' is implemented in v5.0. But, all operations run simultaneously instead of running in Queue. This results in slower transfer speed if the transfers are made to same HDD and overall a slow responsive OS if multiple operations are going on. It would be great if there was an option in the program settings to run Operation Files in Queue. Thank you...

In v4.8 if a *.copf(SOURCE: some directories, TARGET: any directory) is run from Explorer with overwrite enabled in the 'settings.ini', it doesn't actually overwrite files. Instead it asks for skip or replace operation. But, if the SOURCE contains some files instead of directories, the programs overwrites well. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you...

Is it possible to execute Jobs(*.copf) made by 'Copy Files Into Multiple Folders' in queue automatically (i.e. Batch Operation)? I cannot find any setting related to that. If not, can you guys implement this feature in the later versions. Thank you.

Good idea! We'll try to implement it in future versions. Thank you very much...

For now, create a bat file that loads the "*.copf" files and set it to move to the next one only once the first one completes. I can't give you exact commands as I don't have time to find them, but you can search for them. There is a command that halts the next step until the first one completes.
