The most advanced screen recording software.

Copy one or multiple files to several folders, with or without overwriting existing content, with this lightweight, easy-to-use program. If you often need to copy a large number of files to multiple locations, performing this task the old-fashioned way is both tedious and time-consuming.

Copy Files Into Multiple Folders is a handy piece of software that, as its name implies, enables you to copy files to multiple directories in one quick operation. It is very simple-to-use. This application is great for those who only wish to transfer a set of files to multiple directories in an effortless manner.

First-time users should not run into any issues, as the programs functions are self-explanatory. Files can be added to the list using drag and drop actions, and you can specify whether or not existing items should be replaced. A processing log is displayed in a separate window after the operation has been launched. It lets you know which files have been copied or skipped.

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

One feature you might want to consider is the option to remove the files from their original position once they have been copied to the multiple folders requested.

Too simplistic for me to use no qualifying conditions like archive bit being set or source modified date is newer than destination so only updated files are coppied over to avoid wasted writes to media and network bandwidth also no specific scheduling and job creation capabilities.

Looking for a program that can copy files from multiple folders at one time into one folder.

Reply   |   Comment by Bob Dolph  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Bob Dolph, I've uninstalled this one now but since you can add multiple source files and specifiy their full paths they could exist in different folders and if you only specify a single output folder then all the added files spec'd should end up in the single destination folder. You don't have to specify multiple destination paths if you don't want to! Though can't see how this can automate the process into a scheduled job. There is no smart file name collision strategy in place just an optional overwrite or not selection so you need to be vigilant not to copy a file named the same from two or more source locations into a common destination folder as the end result will not be complete.

Not something I'd use - I usually only have to copy to 2 destinations, so not worth it. I can definitely see project and business applications for this tho.

TK, No not free 1 time pay for life time license 37 Euro plus VAT, it has everything this program does and more, and if you think you need something else you go and get plug-ins for it or make them your self, I mean I added features to my Total Commander I needed they have a easy guide and all.

Downloaded, expanded (unzipped) file, installed on Windows 7 Pro. Registered using supplied serial number. No issues during this process.

One use for this program is its ability to copy digital pictures from an SD card to both my hard drive and external drive at the same time. This will save me a step. So, does what it says with a small footprint (program size).

After downloading and installing I'm furious! .... Furious I hadn't come across this software before, what a neat idea, simple to use. I have a need to copy the same data to several other devices and this is a big time saver ... Oh and just in case you realize it, I quite like this software. Thank you.

Robert, those are my feelings too. After using PCs since the earliest days (the 1980s) and other systems when I worked for IBM, I've never come across this simple concept before -- even if it is out there somewhere else.

However for me there is one major shortcoming. I frequently copy FOLDERS to two different places, including their sub-folders, but this cannot be accomplished with version 2.0, so I hope the team in Istanbul will incorporate in version 3.0 of this nice little utility

Tony Austin,

This program does allow copying FOLDERS as well.

When you click on the Add button, it gives two options: Add File(s) and Add Folder(s). Select the Folders option, then browse to the folder you want as source; no need to include sub-folders since they are automatically included. Repeat for as many source folders as you need, and you can also include individual files in the mix.

Did you try using the Add Folders option? It automatically includes the sub-folders.

Gary, my apologies, for some reason my mind did not register what my eyes saw! Another good way to add folders (or files) is by drag and drop rather than clicking the "Add" button.

Just to make it patently obvious, I would recommend that the heading for the top text area be changed from "Files to copy" to "Files or Folders to Copy" in my opinion.

And even more useful, the heading for the bottom text area would be better as "Target Folders" rather than just "Folders" or so I reckon.

-- Cheers, Tony.

@ Endomondo,

The programs you mentioned are used to "sync" two sets of files (1 main folder to 1 main folder (and sub-folders)), one-way or bi-directional; I have both of them.

This program is different from what most people are experienced with regarding syncing in that it is designed to copy a file/set of files to multiple locations. You build a "source" list of files (add file(s)), and then you build a list of destination folders (add folders) where all of the source list is to be copied to. You can save source lists in a file, and likewise target folders in a file, to make it easy to have multiple ones if needed.

This is more of a distribution program than what we normally consider syncing. I am aware of only a couple programs that were designed for this purpose, and this one implemented it better. Sure, it keeps that set of file synced with the many destination folders, but it does not concern itself with any other files in those folders.

Example: you have a file/files that gets modified often, and that same file/files (e.g., library of routines/common documents) needs to be distributed to different clients/projects/websites along with several other files that are different for each project. With the software packages you mentioned, you would have to set up multiple sync operations that would leave other files in the destination alone (if not in the source), and you would have to execute each sync operation individually, unless the software had "grouping" functionality where you could kick off one main job and it do all the individual jobs. It is possible to do that with a sync program that has the "grouping" function, but the setting up each destination is extremely tedious, even if you can start by using a copy of the first one to create the others. There is also an issue if you need to add or remove and entry from the source side or the target side.

The Copy Files to Multiple Folders software simplifies that operation.

It is a very simple concept, but it took me years to find the ones I am familiar with. I am glad to see this one available to us today at no cost.

Tried it and it works. For me not much of a need for it, rarely if ever transfer files to multiple other folders. A right click context menu option would be nice to add to the program so as I see the files I could add them to the list.

Unfortunately I cannot get the app registered.
I keep getting 'Activation Failed' when entering the license key from the Readme.txt file.
I also tried in Administrator mode.

Walther, same to me ! thinking of uninstalling it

Simplicity itself to install, run and register the program. If you happen to backup a range of new files manually to several directories this program should make the process far easy and less time consuming- perhaps a specialist field but this company has some interesting new ideas and approaches if the last two day's offers have been anything to go by!

This looks like a simple program, from the same Co. that was on yesterdays Giveaway.
Its nice that it doesn't look outdated, but simple enough and minimalistic.
I have no problem using such program, but i do not copy files and folders using a third party software. Really i use default copy/paste/move that is present in the Windows system itself.
I use Beyond Sync for this kind of job, to sync.

This is a freesync tool from https://freefilesync.org/
Thank you Giveaway for today's giveaway.
If there were no online registration procedure, maybe i would have kept this.
Maybe will remove after few days.
But thank you Giveaway team, you are really spoiling people by offering free
shareware programs.

Endomondo, even better and the best file sync program is Dsynchronize!


Been using it for years and it's saved me so many times in restoring backups and backing up my data correctly. I have tried many other Sync programs commercial and free plus I am a paid user of GoodSync but I find Dsynchronize to be even better and faster than them all.

Plus it's FREE.
