ZIP, custom name and copy to folder
Hi all, I need something special and have no idea how to achieve it.
I need a kind of script that would allow people using a computer (XP) to right-click on a folder and/or files and then hit a kind of 'ZIP and copy to folder DROPBOX'. It's like a ZIP and email but on a folder, ZIP and copy to folder.
Here is some specifications;
- The folder 'DROPBOX' will always be the same, the destination never change
- The ZIP file would have to get some kind kind of uniqueness name generator (timestamp+random?), ex.: 130480392_5643.zip, just to make sure the file is not there twice
- Must create a single file, with ZIP extension
- No confirmation, if the user right-click a folder and/or files and hit 'ZIP and copy to DROPBOX', it does the job right away, no confirmation on what to do or that it's done (only a DOS command that opens and close itself once done would be nice).
Thanks a lot
UPDATE : After thinking a bit, the only way a confirmation would be ok if it's the random name generation part is not working, example, you right-click, choose 'ZIP and send to DROPBOX', a small input window opens prompting to enter a name for the archive, you enter something and hit 'generate zip'.
