Batch file to copy files
Posted on 2008-10-10
I have a large number of 3.5" floppy disks to copy off onto a hard drive.
I want to automate this so it can be done by a temp. So I will need something very simple.
Batch file came to mind BUT its been a decade or so since I wrote one.
All files will be written to F:/floppy/
I want to ask user for folder name to create/use in f:/floppy/ and then copy everything in A: to this folder.
The machine being used is a Win Vista 32 Bit.
So steps should be like:
1 Ask to give a folder name that will be created on hard drive for the files.
2 The files will be copied to F:/floppy/<name of folder you gave to question 1> Create folder if its not already created.
3. verify the files
4. when done ask to eject disk and insert next disk or quit
5 repeat to 1 (if you didn't quit)
I know this shouldn't be hard to do. But again I have forgotten my batch file skills.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
