How can I export all photos and videos from Windows 7 to external HDD?

Hello, I want to copy/move all my photos and videos from Windows 7 PC to external hard drive. I have huge mess in my PC so I'm looking up for some program which can find and export every photo and video... Do you know about one?

//EDIT: When i'm trying to search "JPG" in "users" computer finds 26 742 files but when I click right button on mouse and then on "Properties" computer freezes for about 30 minutes and then it shows me that its 20.2 GB of JPGs in my user folder... And as i dont want to copy it forever on that slow computer (manually typing jpg,png,wmv, etc... ) can some program do it for me and find every photo and video located in my computer?

Thanks for any advice

Hello and welcome Patrezco try this mate
Imaging with free Macrium it doesn't take long to do and you can then just delete all but what you want form the image - but always good way of backing up anyway in case of having to reinstall and get the data back to the new install.

In my mind a nice piece of insurance and Macrium always a very handy tool to have on board .
Personally I back my main machines up on a regular basis - you can set it to do that at regular intervals ie weekly.

NB When editing you can always do this on a faster machine but dismount the drive first as you would do with USB sticks.

Suggestion

Someone could probably write a script to do it - however, if you've got a good idea where the directories containing the files are located you can use software that will move multiple files for you based on file extension.

Here's a screenshot of the software that I tend to use:

Can only handle one file type at a time.

Or sometimes I use this one:

If the file doesn't exist in the destination directory it will be copied. Can handle multiple file types. Has a date filter.
