    Copy pictures from SD Card


    Hi everybody,

    could you help me? I would like to copy pictures from a folder on the sd card to the local pictures folder via command line

    1. Use of recording date: Place pictures in destination and create a folder structure like: \pictures\YYYY_MM_DD\
    2. Create no duplicate files - only copy new files
    3. Do not change pictures
    4. Copy also RAW format pictures
    5. Leave source directory as it is

    Would that be possible?

    Yours

    Holger

    Are you familiar with batch file programming in Windows?

        See what XCOPY can do in a batch file. In a command window enter XCOPY /? for an overview of the options.

          This would be easier (for me anyway) if you downloaded Unix utilities ported to Windows like:

          http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

          or maybe:

          Specifically, find and grep would make determining which images have already been downloaded easy.

            You might look into ROBOCOPY. It has many more options than XCOPY. Like XCOPY, it's part of Windows (System32 folder).
