Copy and Paste Data Into Multiple Directories

Required software:

Copy one or multiple files to several folders, with or without overwriting existing content, with this lightweight, easy-to-use program. If you often need to copy a large number of files to multiple locations, performing this task the old-fashioned way is both tedious and time-consuming.

Copy Files Into Multiple Folders is a handy piece of software that, as its name implies, enables you to copy & paste files to multiple directories in one quick operation. It is very simple-to-use. This application is great for those who only wish to transfer a set of files to multiple directories in an effortless manner. First-time users should not run into any issues, as the programs functions are self-explanatory.


Files can be added to the list using drag and drop actions, and you can specify whether or not existing items should be replaced. A processing log is displayed in a separate window after the operation has been launched. It lets you know which files have been copied or skipped.

Hello Javier. Updated the blog post and included a screenshot just now. Please check the "Overwrite Existing Files" in the screenshot.

I need to copy multiple files into several directories, but not have the files copied into all of those directories (sorry, I'm old-school. I mean folders).

Let me explain what I want to do: I have a folder with many hundreds of classical music CDs each in their own folder (lets call the master folder "CDs"). AND I have a folder on another drive called "Classical Music". "Classical Music" has folders called A, B, C, D etc and under each of those folders are the composer's name, ie. under "B" there is "Beethoven","Bach", "Bartok", "Britten" and so on. So I want to copy folders from "CDs", let's take "Beethoven Symphony 5" as an example, and copy it to drivex:>Classical Music>B>Beethoven. Likewise I want to copy "Bartok Concerto for Orchestra" to drivex:>Classical Music>B>Bartok.

It can be done one at a time, of course. I can also easily select multiple files that belong in "Beethoven", then copy/move them to the correct destination. But that is tedious and time consuming too, especially with the minor composers who may onle have one CD of their music. At the present, the music collection is about 4.5 TB in size and will grow to probably 10 to 12 terrabytes. The CD folders come in on an ongoing basis as rights management is settled.

How can you envision your software helping in this task more that Windows' File Explorer ?

Hello Paul. Using Copy Files Into Multiple Folders, you can create operation files for each copy operation. After you create these files, all you need to do is use the menu: File -> Load And Run Operation Files and select the created operation files.
