I am trying to re-copy about 1,500 MP3 files from their source in multiple folders in my music library to a jump drive organized in folders named by artist. Here's an example from the jump drive:
I:\Coldplay\A Message.mp3 I:\Coldplay\Low.mp3 I:\Coldplay\Speed of Sound.mp3 I:\Coldplay\Square One.mp3 I:\Coldplay\The Hardest Part.mp3 I:\Coldplay\White Shadows.mp3 I:\Coldplay\A Sky Full of Stars.mp3 I:\Coldplay\Always in My Head.mp3 I:\Coldplay\Ink.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\All That I Know.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Bearing Witness.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Good Morning After All.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Hollywood.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\I Don't Need Anymore Friends.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Never Here Alone.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\New Vibration.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Persuasion of You.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\What I Can Give You.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Dig.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Fuzzy.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Hymn For My Father.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Lighten Up.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\Love.mp3 I:\Collective Soul\She Does.mp3
The source is organized by artist name/album title, so the songs by Coldplay and Collective Soul have multiple different source folders branched off the Coldplay and Collective Soul folders. And not all songs in each source folder are copied onto the jump drive, only selected ones. Because of this I can't figure out any way to tell the OS where to find the source files to copy, other than manually one-by-one (tedious!). I also have a text file made by doing "DIR /B /S > USB_List.txt". Can anyone think of a way of copying these using a batch or For command. Or is this even possible? Thanks.
