Download and extract a script in attachment. Start that script "ZZZZ_script.bat" AS ADMINISTRATOR , in the same folder of 5000 files. It will open your list.txt file(which should be there already) and will start searching for files and making copies to C:\your_files folder, which is predefined in that script.
Neutron16 amazing job!
I was just wondering if it was possible to make the script copy folders with all their content, instead of just individual files?

Hi everyone, for all those who struggled to get it working. I did too.
Don't make any of the below mistakes as i finally got it to work.
1. Save your file as text file and when you name it - do not name it list.txt because the file is already a txt file and it will add the .txt automatically. So name your file simply 'list'.
2. I placed my folder with my files in C drive.
3. Make sure your file name in the list file have the correct title e.g. even if the file name is 12345, if it is a jpg file, it's name really is 12345.jpg - get this part right!
4. Create a folder and name it your_file and place it in C drive.
5. Finally - Neutron 16 had two attachments, only one worked for me, so try both!
Thanks Neutron16 :)
