Move multiple files in different directories into a new folder


This Content is from SuperUser. Question asked by Taborniau

I am facing a problem moving multiple files from different folders to one single folder.

All my files are ending with .las and are located in a path like this : e:LiDAR%%%%LIDAR*, where %%%% is a serie of 4 numbers like 0950, and where LiDAR* is the beggining of all the different folder names containing the .las files.

Here’s an exemple of path of one of the .las file :


I want to move all those files to a folder I created, here is its path :


Here’s the command line I tried but it’s not working :

E:>move e:LiDAR%%%%LIDAR**.las e:LiDARLas_files

I would be happy if someone can help me : )
