I have numerous image files (JPG/PNG format) stored in a folder. I would like to filter out (move to another folder) images that does NOT contain any of the following text :

_thumb ; _tiny ; _zoom ; _std

Example: image_thumb.jpg ; image_tiny.jpg ; image_zoom.jpg ; image_std.jpg ; image.jpg

Output: image.jpg should be moved to another Folder

Anyone care to share DOS Command prompt to achieve this ? rolleyes.gif

Thanks in Advance.

Although it may be a bit of a learning curve for you it is a powerful file manipulator.


excerpt from the online manual

Much of the mostly hidden power of XXCOPY lies in the exclusion
mechanism.  Starting with v.2.97.7 (2009-01-13), the exclusion
specifier is fully compatible with the "Wild-Wildcard" feature.
That is, you may use wildcard characters (* and ?) anywhere in
the exclusion specifier in any number of times.  (Earlier 
versions of XXCOPY had complicated rules on the wildcard usage).
