I can’t believe I just googled how to copy files in DOS. But turns out that was way easier than copy/paste job under Windows. After downloading all those DRGs the other day, I ended up with a bunch of other files that I didn’t want – scattered among the *.tif’s across a few hundred file folders.
To make things easy, I used: xcopy c:\origin\*.tif c:\destination.
I had almost forgotten how much fun DOS used to be !
Or if you’d like to merge a bunch of files from different directories in one folder.
for /r c:\…\origin %i in (*.tif) do copy /y %i c:\…\destination
and for those darn temp files the downloader created (*****.tif.temp), I used:
ren c:\origin\????????.???.??? ????????.tif – one “?” for each character in the file name.
