I have a need to move all of our users .pst files following an ExMerge from Exchange, into an existing folderstructure with permissions already set.  The source folder has all the username.pst files in one directory.  The destination folder has an existing folders based on the username.  

Example...I am looking for an automated method to move the C:\pst\Joe.Smith.pst to D:\users\Joe.Smith

Thanks

Hey,

Something like this should do it.
@echo off

set SOURCEFOLDER=C:\Documents and Settings\source

set DESTINATIONFOLDER=C:\Documents and Settings\users
 

for /f "delims=. tokens=1,2" %%A in ('dir /b "%SOURCEFOLDER%"') do (

	if "%%B"=="pst" move "%SOURCEFOLDER%\%%A.%%B"  "%DESTINATIONFOLDER%\%%A\."

) 

Open in new window

BasiKobrA, I think using a . as a delimiter may cause you problems because the filenames contain those characters.  I have modified your script to account for this:


@echo off
set SOURCEFOLDER=C:\Documents and Settings\source
set DESTINATIONFOLDER=C:\Documents and Settings\users
 
for /f  %%A in ('dir /b "%SOURCEFOLDER%\*.pst"') do (
   move "%SOURCEFOLDER%\%%~nA.pst"  "%DESTINATIONFOLDER%\%%~nA\."
)
