Sorry, forgot to tell you how to do it.

Use this VBScript to copy the file 1000 times;

set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
For i = 1 to 1000
FSO.CopyFile "C:\temp\test.txt","C:\temp\test.txt" & i
Next

changing the locations as required, then use The Rename program to rename as needed.

Here is a way to do it in batch.

Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Running it will create copies numbered from 0001 to 9999.


@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
 
set source=filename0000.tif
set base=filename
set ext=.tif
 
for /L %%G in (1,1,9999) do (
 set num=000%%G
 set num=!num:~-4!
 echo F|xcopy "%source%" "%base%!num!%ext%" /C /H /R /Y
)
