select/search multiple files from a list, copy and paste to new folder

I have a list of 1000 files names (photo files) from clients and need to find them in one folder which has 10000+ files in it.And my clients files list do not have the full photo name (only a part of file name, eg: the file name in my local disk is "403817-QTX0022-30763812_Q10Photo.jpeg" and name from clients list is "30763812"

Any possible way to highlight/seclect those files from my list so I can copy paste to a new folder?

I would look for a 3rd party file manger with the features you need.

If you don't find a file manager that can do this, I could create a batch file that finds and copies these files for you. But I need to know how this list of files you got from your clients look like and if you could copy it to a text file?

For example:
30763812
30763813

or perhaps:
30763812,30763813

You could also try Everything Search. It is for NTFS file systems only. It uses the MFT info of NTFS. It is lightning fast. Also you could set it to only index your source folder. In fact I think the latest stable version has been fixed to allow wildcard patterns in the middle such as what you wrote about. As example search with pattern *30763812*
