Howdy,

I have been searching for the last few hours for something to help me rip all the JPG images on my hard drive.

I want to put them into a seperate folder.

I have not been succesful in finding such a tool.
I can use the windows search feature BUT, I have 68000 images
and when I do a "select all" and then "right click" to send them,
this lame rig locks up.

Hook a brother up with something.

Code:
cd \
for /f "usebackq" %a in (`dir *.jpg /s /b`) do copy "%a" destination_path_goes_here
Expect this command to take a bit of time to execute

Even more simple:
cd \
for /r %a in (*.jpg) do copy "%a" destination_path_goes_here

OK,

Both command line inputs work equally well.
My next problem,

Because I am trying to strip jpgs from multiple databases I have on my hard drive, I have a problem.

Most people, when they recharge the batteries for the digital camera,
start the "name/numbering" sequence for new photos back to default.

For example, when searching for the file containing 1010014, I have in excess of 160 images that contain that name.

Is there a way to rename these "on the fly" ?

Thanks a ton ya'll,

Woodmann

Did you tried any file manager like total commander?

Bah! No need to download extra tools. You can do this natively! Just paste this into a command prompt:

Code:

cmd /vn
cd \
set counter = 0
for /r %a in (*.jpg) do (copy "%a" "destination_path_goes_here\!counter!.jpg"
set /a counter += 1)

Good call disa BUT,

I neglected to take into account that it would keep on reading my "saved images" file in an endless loop
It just keeps reading my destination folder and writing the same images over and over again but renaming them.

(I thought something was wrong after 4 hours)

I shall make the needed changes.

Thanks

Bah... I assumed this was going to a different drive.

If you need help making the changes, let me know.

Howdy,

Will it really do what I want ?

I gave it a very quick try and it balked at identical file names.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have found a solution.

Good deal!

I archived this one, a while back and took a quick look today, looked like it should do the trick, but, I really didn't take a real close look, but I will give it a try, since I have a similar situation on this end - sometime in the future I may want to quiz you on exactly what you did,
