I'm new to AHK. I'm looking for a way to automate a simple backup process I now do manually: In Windows Explorer, I copy the filename of a file I've worked on, go to my external hard drive duplicate file list in Win Explorer, and paste the file into the list, replacing the previous version.
Simple. It's mostly for document files. I have an image file that includes all the program files. Besides, if I need to start over from scratch, I prefer to rebuild from scratch instead of using an image whose registry has started to degrade over time.
Is there a way to create a script in AHK to do that simple copy/paste process? Or does anyone know of a program someone has written to do that? Maybe pressing a hotkey after highlighting the name of the file I'm updating? I assume some kind of search would need to be included to find the file on the external hard drive. Too long of a process?
