Not sure exaclty what you are after, but if you just want the files in the root of Z: you can do:

robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              z:\ "pegar.TXT"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              z:\ "pipe.TXT"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              z:\ "REQUISvv.DOC"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas\1 PLANEACION" z:\ "LISTADO PROCEDIMIENTOS.DOC"

Open in new window


If you want them in the same folder then you can do:

robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "z:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "pegar.TXT"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "z:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "pipe.TXT"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "z:\Carpetas Compartidas"              "REQUISvv.DOC"
robocopy "f:\Carpetas Compartidas\1 PLANEACION" "z:\Carpetas Compartidas\1 PLANEACION" "LISTADO PROCEDIMIENTOS.DOC"

If you want to change something, you need to change the way the copy is performed. With "original .txt", do you mean the file containing the commands?

My guess...

He has a huge .txt file with filenames like:

f:\Carpetas Compartidas\pegar.TXT"
f:\Carpetas Compartidas\pipe.TXT"
f:\Carpetas Compartidas\REQUISvv.DOC"
f:\Carpetas Compartidas\1 PLANEACION\LISTADO PROCEDIMIENTOS.DOC"

...and he wants to do the robocopy thing.

... and he thinks he has to revise the original .txt to the way Bill showed.  With all those perfect spaces and stuff... Yikes. hehe.

Just a guess...

Bill's 2nd solution should work for you. Still, you'd need to revise that huge .txt file somehow. As an alternative, maybe this will help....

Notes:
- Copy the code below and save to a .bat file of your choice.
- Revise set fn=HugeFile.txt to match your filename of your .txt file. If the file is in a certain folder, you can add the folder name, too. e.g. c:\user\me\documents\hugefile.txt
- This version uses ECHO robocopy for testing (visual) purposes. When you are satisfied that it looks like it will work, remove the ECHO in front of robocopy and save the .bat file. Then run it live.
- When running it live, let me know if you experience errors. Errors will show in the HugeFileCopy.log
@echo off
SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

set fn=HugeFile.txt

for /f "tokens=*" %%A in (%fn%) do (
  set dv=%%~dA
  set pt=%%~pA
  set f=%%~nA%%~xA
  ECHO robocopy "!dv!!pt!" "z:!pt!" "!f!" /SECFIX /R:3 /W:3 /log+:HugeFileCopy.log
)
goto :eof

RoboCopy seems to be oversize here. XCopy should do better for single files.

Very inconvenient, as you have write anything twice, but if that works for you ...
However, I doubt it does, or are those trailing spaces part of the file name?
