Solved How to copy specific files in bulk?

August 13, 2013 at 12:09:32
Specs: Windows 7 x64
I want to copy files that are (e.g EXE) format with all of it's directories and sub-directories from C to F. that are more than 3 months old and then delete the files from the old root. I think robocopy or xcopy can do this but I am having a hard time with the parameters. and which one to use. or maybe there is a program out there that can do this but I don't know it yet.

Why are you moving .EXE files from the folder they were installed on.

Do that and there is a very good chance they will no run and you will need to re-install them.

"xxxxxx.prjpcb.zip" is the type of files i have to move, but there are over 384 GB worth of zip files that are about 5kb and are scattered through out the C drive that were created but a 3rd party software. and I need to back them all up on another Drive

I would use robocopy, and here is a good site for syntaxes & examples (depending on what you want to accomplish):

I tried looking again and I found a program that does this easier, not just for me but for everyone else in my company that has to use it when I am not here. it is called http://limagito.com/ it allows me to do pretty much exactly what I needed. I installed it on my Virtual PC and doing testing before it goes in to Data Computer. Thanks for for everything though.
