Hello experts,

Is there a batch file I can create which can copy all files from \\192.168.0.2\Script\sw to C:\CSV\sw
I also need the same batch file to copy from \\192.168.0.2\Script\hw to C:\CSV\hw

Is that possible?

	robocopy.exe "\\192.168.0.2\Script\%%a" "C:\CSV\%%a" /e /r:0 /w:0
)

Wow, that was fast and works! Thanks but I have another thing. I have to copy from different locations onto one folder, can I incorporate it all in one.

Say I have to copy from  \\192.168.0.99\Script\sw to  C:\CSV\sw and \\192.168.0.99\Script\hw to C:\CSV\hw

Sorry, can't quite follow you.
The script above will copy two subfolders from a share into the respective subfolders locally.
Your second comment differs from the first only in the source IP address, if I'm not mistaken.
So do you want to collect the hw and sw folders from both servers into their local equivalents?
In other words:
\\192.168.0.2\Script\hw  -\
                           >--> C:\CSV\hw
\\192.168.0.99\Script\hw -/

\\192.168.0.2\Script\sw  -\
                           >--> C:\CSV\sw
\\192.168.0.99\Script\sw -/

Open in new window

If so, what's supposed to happen with duplicate file names?

Building on what oBdA proposed, and adding support for both multiple source servers, and multiple folders to copy, you could try the below.  The open question about duplicate handling still needs to be answered, but this should give you a starting point.

@echo off
setlocal

set ServerList=\\192.168.0.2 \\192.168.0.99
set FolderList=sw hw
set DestFolder=C:\CSV

for %%a in (%ServerList%) do (
  for %%b in (%FolderList%) do (
    robocopy.exe "%%~a\Script\%%~b" "%DestFolder%\%%~b" /e /r:0 /w:0
  )
)

Open in new window

Thanks Bill, duplicate handling wont be a problem. If two files with the same name exists, then I want them to overwrite.
Let me try this and get back to you.

You might want to add the /xo (eXclude Older) switch to the robocopy command then, to make sure only the latest file is copied.
