simple batch command to copy few files

#1 Post by miozeriux » 22 May 2020 06:51

Hello, I don't have any experience in programming and I'm trying to create a simple .bat file for my work which I would put in a directory I want, and it would copy all the files with certain extensions + one more file (which always has the same name) from the directory I put the .bat file in, to a newly created folder in the same directory (or on the desktop doesn't really matter).

I've spent few hours trying to learn batch commands I need and writing this script but without much luck. As i understand, I need to use Xcopy command for copying, then %~dp0 to select the current directory (where .bat file is in) then list the extensions I need to be copied which are ._cad.stl *.constructionInfo *.dentalProject * preview.png (this one is optional i could do without it if it's more complicated) and then use mkdir command to create a new directory, but i'm not sure how to make it work and put it all together, any help would be extremely appreciated, thanks big time guys ...

We would love to help but it would really help us if you could supply the code you have already written and give us a bit more detail to the scope of the project and what you are having problems with.
