    Hi all,

    Is there a way to select only filenames that have "Copy" in its filename?
    Example:
    Filename22.xlsx
    Filename22 - Copy.xlsx
    Filename34.xlsx
    Filename34 - Copy.xlsx
    Filename89.xlsx
    Filename89 - Copy.xlsx
    etc.

    TIA!

    :)

    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

  4. Select only files that have "Copy" in the filename?

    Copying files from a folder using filenames from a text file

    I have a folder that contains approx. 17,000 images, I want to copy only those images, whose filenames are listed in a text file. The text file contains approx. 1000 file names.

    Is there a command that I can use on cmd or power shell to automate this process? Otherwise I will have to manually go through all those 17,000 files and copy the ones that are listed in text file which seems impossible
