XXCOPY is a superb file copying program  for
Win 95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / XP
DOS version also available.

               http://www.xxcopy.com

Application: If you want to copy files for backup or other purposes and are
limited by your existing software.

XXCOPY does everything XCOPY used to do (and which later versions don't do)
PLUS much much more.
Manual or automated operation.
If you are restricted by the limitations of Windows drag & drop file copying
XXCOPY may be your friend. Can be used at an extremely simple level or using
some of the 200+ option switches. For backup operations the basic /BU option
will meet many needs.
eg to incrementally backup the C:\DOC folder and all lower level
subdirectories to the BACKUPS folder in G: use
       XXCOPY /BU   C:\DOCS   G:\BACKUPS

Free for private use.
$US20 or less per copy (reduces with number of copies) for corporate use.

Command line operation for Win95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / XP
16 bit version also available.

Use for hard disk cloning

       http://www.xxcopy.com/xxcopy10.htm

Superbly documented.
Technical bulletins
Discussion group.
PRO version (for $) should you need even more capability.

  Another MS thing on the subject (really usefull one):
  FileSystemObject from Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library(Scrrun.dll). Can be referenced almost from anything: Visual Studio, Office, any of hundreds of software environments with built-in VBA such as Corels, AutoCad and so on.

From MSDN for example:  
HOWTO: Recursively Search Directories Using FileSystemObject

     Option Explicit
     Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
     Dim fld As Folder

     Private Sub Command1_Click()
       Dim nDirs As Integer, nFiles As Integer, lSize As Long
       Dim sDir As String, sSrchString As String
       sDir = InputBox("Please enter the directory to search", _
                       "FileSystemObjects example", "C:\")
       sSrchString = InputBox("Please enter the file name to search", _
                       "FileSystemObjects example", "vb.ini")
       MousePointer = vbHourglass
       Label1.Caption = "Searching " & vbCrLf & UCase(sDir) & "..."
       lSize = FindFile(sDir, sSrchString, nDirs, nFiles)
       MousePointer = vbDefault
       MsgBox Str(nFiles) & " files found in" & Str(nDirs) & _
              " directories", vbInformation
       MsgBox "Total Size = " & lSize & " bytes"
     End Sub

     Private Function FindFile(ByVal sFol As String, sFile As String, _
       nDirs As Integer, nFiles As Integer) As Long
       Dim tFld As Folder, tFil As File, FileName As String

       Set fld = fso.GetFolder(sFol)
       FileName = Dir(fso.BuildPath(fld.Path, sFile), vbNormal Or _
         vbHidden Or vbSystem Or vbReadOnly)
         While Len(FileName) <> 0
           FindFile = FindFile + FileLen(fso.BuildPath(fld.Path, _
                      FileName))
           nFiles = nFiles + 1
           List1.AddItem fso.BuildPath(fld.Path, FileName)  ' Load
ListBox
           FileName = Dir()  ' Get next file
              DoEvents
           Wend
      Label1 = "Searching " & vbCrLf & fld.Path & "..."
      nDirs = nDirs + 1
      If fld.SubFolders.Count > 0 Then
           For Each tFld In fld.SubFolders
              DoEvents
              FindFile = FindFile + FindFile(tFld.Path, sFile, nDirs, _
                         nFiles)
           Next
      End If
     End Function

I have a small dos program I wrote years ago, it keeps
a data file which lists every file and directory on my
PC. It finds ANY file (from total over 30,000 files) in
about 100mS. I use it constantly! :o)

  Once, I used FileSystemObject for converting approx
25,000 pictures in one of Corel Draw formats to .wmf.
I did it by launching Corel Draw from MS Excel using
Automation.
  Then recursively moved through folders, making Corel
convert current file and store it in a mirror directory
structure.
  How about doing this sort of thing by a a small dos
program?

  Mike.
