I have many folders, each containg numerous files of different file type eg bmp, tif etc
I need to create a new folder for each existing folder (I have done this successfully).
However, I am now stuck. I need to go through all the old folders and copy all the files from each folder to the corresponding new folder.
The only method I can think of would be to open each old folder using Dir and then search through each folder again using Dir. I don't think you can nest Dir's?

Please can somebody assist me?
