The ability to quickly and easily copy files with a certain name can be a lifesaver when an IT admin is working with large numbers of files and folders. Fortunately, PowerShell provides a simple way to copy all files with a certain name.
The first step is to create a variable to store the path to the source folder. To do this, the following command can be used:
$sourcePath = “C:\\myFolder\\sourceFolder”
Once the variable is set, use the Get-ChildItem cmdlet to list all files in the folder that match the given name. This can be done using the following command:
Get-ChildItem $sourcePath -Filter “*.FileName”
This will return a list of all files with the .FileName extension in the source folder.
The next step is to use the Copy-Item cmdlet to copy the files to the destination folder. To do this, use the following command:
Copy-Item $sourcePath -Destination “C:\\myFolder\\destinationFolder”
This will copy all files with the .FileName extension from the source folder to the destination folder.
That’s all there is to it! With just a few lines of code, an IT admin can easily copy all files with a certain name using PowerShell. This can save a great deal of time and effort when dealing with large numbers of files and folders.
