Bulk move large numbers of large files Tags: copy files move files Windows 8 Last response: July 28, 2014 9:53 AM in Windows 8 Share photomanbrian July 28, 2014 9:18:00 AM I will shortly need to move a large number (20,000) very large (20-30Mb) image files and associated tiny xmp sidecar files from one internal SATA6 hard drive to another. MS file explorer will make a meal of this so any suggestions for alternatives please? I have several folders each containing many thousands of files. ps I wonder if a live boot Linux would be faster???

You can select multiple directories so if it is scatted accross your hard drive that is not a problem, and it has many compare options for you as well.
