Moving Files To Disc

     This project is done for log files which make crowd to move  when they fill the space of disc.Did this project while working as intern.

     They complained about logs which filled the disc space and crash the system.This project which i did, automatially sorted logs by creation date. Then they fill them in files and zipped. Then move this zipped files to desired location.Thanks to this, you never lost log files, and can reach any of them by looking creation time.

    Also you can specify source and target disc name, and amount of files which will move. Developed with C# Windows Desktop . 

In Visual Studio when you want to pass parameters to application from outside you can right click the project and  add General -> Settings File.

Add Settings File

     After adding Settings File, enter parameter which use in projects.

SourceFolder: Location of Moving File from it
TargetFolder: Location of Moving File to it
WarningAmountOfFileSize: how much disc size fill the disch and  trigger to move
AmountOfPercentForMovingFull : Amount of percent of files which will move

In Type specify the type of variables and for Scope choose the Application.

In Program.cs in Main method you can reach the parameter:

  string directoryName = Settings.Default.TargetFolder;

In main method specify below.

public static void Main(string[] args)
            Program myProgram= new Program();

            //prevent multiple instance of C# application
            if (Process.GetProcessesByName(Process.GetCurrentProcess().ProcessName).Length > 1)
                Console.WriteLine("Only one instance allowed");

                DateTime dailyDate = DateTime.Now;

               String directoryTargetName =  myProgram.GetTargetDirectoryName(dailyDate);

                //listing all files in disk
                string[] a1 = Directory.GetFiles(@Settings.Default.SourceFolder);

                //get free disk space
                string sourceDriverName = Settings.Default.SourceFolder.Split(new char[] { System.IO.Path.DirectorySeparatorChar }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries).Last();
