XP File Copy Utility

Is there a copy utility for XP that it would go through different folders / subfolders, find files and move / group the files to a new folder and dump them all together ?

I have a bunch of MP3s by artist/album folders and I just want to dump all the individuals files in one single folder and get rid off the whole structure…

How could I accomplish this in XP ?

If you can’t find an XP utility, you may be able to do this in DOS using the command line[I]‘xcopy’[/I] command (NB don’t click on the blue link; it is just the forum software thinking it needs inserting and is linking to a different thing :rolleyes: ).

There is a host of options which can determine the files and/or folder (directory) structures to be copied:

You can do this with the normal Search option in Windows Explorer. Just search for *.mp3, let the search finish, select all and cut (or copy). Then go to your new folder and paste.

Excellent - nice tip :slight_smile:
