[Solved] XCOPY command, how to copy files but not folders?

3 posts in this topic

Hi there!

I want to copy all files inside i386 but not the folders inside it. What i use is:

xcopy /Y /e %CDROM%\i386\*.* %SystemRoot%\Source\i386\

DEL /q /f %SystemRoot%\Source\i386\DOCS\*.*

DEL /q /f %SystemRoot%\Source\i386\DRIVERS\*.*

DEL /q /f %SystemRoot%\Source\i386\SOFTWARE\*.*

DEL /q /f %SystemRoot%\Source\i386\THEMES\*.*

Obviously this takes much more time than just copying the files inside i386, because THEMES and SOFTWARE folders are BIG (and they don't get deleted too), so i wonder if is there another option that just copies all files inside i386 but not any of the folders inside it :)

If you use /e with xcopy it is to copy subfolders, remove it.
