Put this where all SQL files are stored. It will load one by one sql files to mysql

### loadsql.bat ####

echo off
for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir /b *.sql') do  mysql -uUSER -pPASSWORD < %%a
pause

For windows, you can create a php file (one that will be run in command line) that reads .sql backup files through the directory and runs it to restore the databases(use exec() function for this). Then you can create the batch file to run the php file in command line.
Let me know if you have trouble with the code. :)
