  1. Moving over 1000 files from one folder(over5000 files init) to another


    Hello,
    I am looking for some file management software that lets me move TON of files from one folder to another with out me selecting each of the files I want to move.
    I have a folder with thousands of files in it and I know the file names for each file I want to move.
    But electing each of the files using CTRL is just daunting.
    I am looking for something like this:

    Original Folder ------Action------ Destination Folder
    D:/Old folder/f152112.txt ------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/textfile01.doc ------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/Image15-151.jpg ------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/Image15-152.jpg -------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/Image15-153.jpg ------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/Mounting Instruction.pdf ------Move to------ D:/New folder
    D:/Old folder/Book1.xlsx ------Move to------ D:/New folder

    Is there a software or any other way to move a specific files to another folder in a batch?
    I know there is a windows script for this but by the looks of it its just for a single file or the entire files in a folder.
    An extra feature I would like to have:
    1) able to move files to different destination folders for each file
    2) Able to move entire folders with files inside.
    3) Other Actions such as copy and Delete
    Any help or suggestions would be great.

    :)

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
