    If I run it manually, it require  conformation on file replacement.

  • Hi MaliStane,

    Would you please locate the line which needs user to interact, please also post the content of confirm.

    And the two cmdlets "Copy-Item" and "New-Item" seems ok for me, the "Remove-Item" cmdlet always prompt the comfirm message if you want to delete a folder and haven't specified the parameter "-Recurse".

    In addition, to work with confirmation in powershell script, you can also refer to the variable "$ConfirmPreference", for more detailed information, please refer to this article:

    If there is anything else regarding this issue, please feel free to post back.

    Best Regards,

    Anna Wang

  • Hi AnnaWY,

    Problematic is flowing, when there is no updates... :

                # If the file inside the zip file should be extracted
                # to a subfolder, then we need to reset the destination
                if ($lastPathIndex -gt $cabNameLength)
                    $relativePath = $source.item($i).Path.SubString(($cabNameLength + 1), ($lastPathIndex - $cabNameLength))
                    $relativeDestDir = $destinationDirectory + $relativePath
                    if ($relativeDestDir -ne $cachedDestDir)
                        $relativeDest = $shell.Namespace($relativeDestDir)
                        $cachedDestDir = $relativeDestDir
                    $relativeDest.CopyHere($source.item($i), $flags)
                   $destination.CopyHere($source.item($i), $flags)
