Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.

 

Copying Files to one Folder

The Utility Factory (makers of FileBoss) bought several graphic collections to use as a basis for the toolbar buttons.

But one set was supplied where each button type was in its own folder based on file format, size and then use.

In order to make selecting the graphics much easier we used FileBoss to search for all the desired graphics (creating a File Set) and then coping all of them to one folder.

First
Create a File Set if Needed

 

• If all the files you want to back up are in a single folder display that folder in an Explore View and go straight to Select the Files to be Copied.

• Otherwise create a File Set containing all of the folders that the files are in. Click here to see how to create a File Set.

• Remember that you can save File Set definitions for later use making it easy and quick to repeat this operation another time.

 

Select the Files to Copy

 

• Use any of FileBoss' simple or advanced selection methods to pick the files you want to copy. From simply using the menu command Select > All to selecting by almost any criteria you can think of FileBoss will make this step really easy.

Drag and Drop the Files

 

• Simply Drag and Drop all the files, from multiple folders, to the folder you want them all in.
