Windows 7: Copying multiple files in a list, from one folder to another...

Thanks for your time on this and for the benchmarking (of local?) file operations.

The thread that I linked to was only concerned with gathering a list of files from a given folder structure, but I (errantly?) figured that the same file enumeration operation must take place within robocopy prior to the act of deciding to copy the file or not.

windows 10 64

I have the same issue but it's with a pdf and Tif files inside one folder, I got a task at work (where I can’t download any program or run the command tool) to OCR 10000 documents so I left adobe acrobat running during the night to do that.

When I came back in the morning I found acrobat stopped OCR-ing and was crashed, and when I checked the target folder where I kept the OCRed files to see how many files were OCR-ed I found only 4000+/- files OCRed. Now I have to find those files that were not OCRed to proccess them on adobe acrobat .

I have also managed to extract the titles of the files that were not OCRed from the main list and put them in txt file (just the name of the files without the extension) however I couldn't figure out how to split those files from the OCRed one in the source folder, Can you please help ?

Copying Files Within Source Folder
This is something small, but kinda annoying for me. In XP, if I copied and pasted a file within the same folder, the file name would be "copy of file.ext". this was great for me cause I could easily sort the files by name and then move them to the final destination folder. But now in Win7, the...
