I am trying to back up all my jpg photo files, using xcopy or a similar type program.
I'd like to make copies of all, the jpg's on my main HD to a backup drive, into one large folder..
I can use the /s switch but it copies all the subdirectories, making a bulky backup. Is there a command line that will copy only the .jpgs themselves to one large folder on the backup drive? Or a different program that will do this?
I'm running windows 7.
Thanks in advance.

If you omit the /s then it will work within a single directory.

Gather by using the File Explorer and searching .jpg (.jpeg too). Now just create a new folder or sub folder.
