Windows 7: Delete folders and keep the content

Delete folders and keep the content

I have a boring task. I make an archive of several years of a daily newspaper, and every number of this newspaper i laying in its own folder on the CD I've got. So I open the folders one by one and draw the only pdf-file inside for collecting them. My wish is to delete all the maps at once and keep the contents. Is it possible? Or is there any other solution to get by this Cinderella-job?

Providing that they are all PDF files, I'd run a search for .pdf and then copy them all into a single folder. Then delete the folders and original files - if needed.

This may not be the best solution. Its a little risky as well.

You cant delete all the folders without deleting the content. You would have to move the files first.

This was a very good idea! There are only pdf files. I need no delete anything, only to search .pdf on the CD and then draw the collection over to an own folder. Thank you very much, Dave, you saved my time!
