jMultiFilesAndDirsCopy is portable application that helps copy multiple files to multiple directories. It also offers support for overwriting similar files or skipping these files, depending on the settings you choose. An automatic log of all copied files is created, allowing you to view file copying history when you want.
It is a Java-based application. From the main interface, click Choose a File and navigate to the file you want to copy. Click Add the File button to add the selected files to the application. Select the directory to which you want to copy selected files by clicking on Choose a Dir button. Check options for file overwriting or skipping similar files from the top if Matching: options. Click Copy src to copy the selected files to the designated folders.

The download is a ZIP file which contains the application [portable] and a 7 page PDF [application handbook]
Tested on Windows 7.
I'm Alessandro, the author of jMultiFilesAndDirsCopy.
First of all, thanks for your review of my app.
I suggest you to try the last version, 0.9.1.0, a minor update with the following enhancements:
- import and export of lists of files and dirs as xml file
- progress bars in log window for files and dirs
- fixed automatic text scrolling in log window with large number of files.
In my next step I'm going to add a new tab called "GroupCopy", a sort of "MultiCopy" extension to more than one group of files and dirs at the same time.
Take a look at my home page (alexbss.altervista.org) for further details.
A good development would be the ability to be able to set permissions of the files.
I'll think to a further new tab for permissions and date settings.
For the moment, the main task is the copy of files.
In my web-site "Features planned" link you can see my future addition to "jMultiFilesAndDirsCopy".
However every good idea is welcome.
a scheduler is not in my plans, but I'm going to add cmd line arguments support so you can use them and the o.s. built-in scheduler engine to execute your tasks when you need.
For example, you could write something like:
jMultiFilesAndDirsCopy -l mylists.xml -c
-l mylists.xml = load the files and dirs lists from the xml file called mylists.xml
-c = execute the copy
The feature of loading lists as xml file has been added in version 0.9.1.0 ;
the cmd line arguments support will be in near future (step-by-step).
At the moment, I'm working to the "GroupCopy" tab, in my spare time.
I'll report all new features in my home page.
