This post will explain to you on how to copy files from different folders located at different places , into a single folder or place , you want them to be kept in.Although this is possible with the Windows XCopy tool, you may not find it as flexible and as user friendly as Copywhiz.
Want to share your favorite photos , music and videos with your friend but have to copy the whole folder while sharing? You have no option to do this since without that you will have to go through the tiring process of going into each folder and search from the long list and select the ones you want one by one.
This is why creating a single folder to store these files is needed. After you select all the folders & files that you wish to copy, you can tell Copywhiz to copy only the files in those folders without copying the whole folder as such. All files will go into a single folder without creating any sub-folders.
Enhance your file-copy experience with Copywhiz as it let’s you to have more flexibility & more control over the file-copying process. Here is how Copywhiz makes file copying a breeze:
Xcopy Source [Destination] /s command lets us to Copy files from different locations to a single destination folder
Here is the command that is actually being used:
xcopy Source [Destination] /S .
For Ex: To copy the files “project.docx” and “logo.png” to a single folder “saved pictures” , the following command line will be used:
For %%a in (
) do (
xcopy /s “%%~a” “d:\pictures\saved pictures”
However, using Xcopy commands are not easy to use. System administrators may be able to use. But Xcopy is not for common users.
2. Keep adding files from different folders by clicking on “copy (add to queue)”. You can see the total number of files copied until now in the “show items” menu.
3.Right-click inside the destination folder where you wish to copy the files and select Copywhiz–>Paste . You could even use ctrl+shift+v .
4. All the files copied will be pasted in the destination folder all at once.
This is how Copywhiz lets you select multiple files from various folders and paste them in one desired folder in a very easy and fast manner. This is very useful when we have all our music/pictures scattered in different folders that we may want to bring into a single folder. Or we may want to pick only specific type of files & copy them all in one folder.
This also saves you from the time consuming process of browsing & digging into several folders.
