Help with copy cmd

JoeM44JoeM44 Posts: 3Member
I would like to copy all .jpg files from all directories on my c: and copy to my g:/pics directory. Is this also possible with the move cmd? Can someone supply the syntax for this? I've had no success so far.

Much appreciated!

    Hi
    If you use windows7..

    open explorer window to drive/folder with the images (in your case, c:)
    hold ctrl-F ( Control & F key at same time ) this is 'find' command
    type *.jpg (I find all .jpg files)
    wait some time ( could take a while )
    window will populate with all .jpg files
    select all files in window ( ctrl-a, or use origanise->select all )
    open another explorer window and navigate to destination ( g:pix was it? )
    hit ctrl-v ( or right click in window & choose 'paste' )

    copy will happen
    if you have files of the same name it will complain.

    Hi. I know how to do in windows but this doesn't work with the number of files that I have. I can only select a group of files at at time. In DOS I should be able to do all at once if I have the proper DOS syntax.
    Thanks anyways.

    I'm not sure why you can only select a few at a time. ctrl-a will select all in the window.

    Anyway, a dos recursive copy of jpg files would be...
    xcopy c:pictures*.jpg g:destpictures /s

    where c:pictures is your source directory. And g:destpictures is your destination.

    type xcopy /? for information about xcopy
