Final Answer

This should work:

for /r C:\ %f in (*.jpg) do @copy "%f" D:\pictures\


The command copy "%f" D:\pictures copies the file %f to the location D:\pictures, which is the file pictures in the directory D:\.

Adding a trailing \ to make sure copy treats pictures as a directory.

If you copy multiple files to a single location (e. g., copy *.* D:\backup), copy automatically treats backup as a directory. But this is not the case when you copy a single file.

I was on a very tight deadline but thanks to Studypool I was able to deliver my assignment on time.

The tutor was pretty knowledgeable, efficient and polite. Great service!

I did not know how to approach this question, Studypool helped me a lot.
