Quickly copy all files of a file type to a particular folder with GoGet

Searching for a file whose location is unknown can become a daunting task. Lets say you have music files spread all over your disk. Wouldn’t it be great if you could move all these music files to a particular location easily and quickly? GoGet is a freeware that lets you move your collection of photos, songs, movies, documents and other data to a particular location. This way you can move all your music files to one location. It allows you to bring your files back under control by allowing you to copy desired type of files from a folder to a predestined location.

Sure, you can use the Windows Search to search for a particular file-type, and then move them to a particular folder, but GoGet simplifies this process and lets you even save search templates.

Using GoGet is pretty straightforward. Just download and run the program. It sports a simple and clutter-free interface. The main window shows correctly labeled fields like:

  1. What are you looking for?
  2. Where do you want to look?
  3. Where do you want them copied to?

The first field lets you define/remind the types of files you would like to copy. The second, where you would like to search them and the last, the destination where you would like the copied files to be stored.

You could use template feature too for downloading or staging folders.

Please note that GoGet does not report where the files are located; it simply copies them to a pre-defined location. Works just fine on Windows 8 and Windows 7!

    Does it merely copy them or does it really move them? I would hate to fill my drive with a ton of duplicate files.

    I’m with Esteban – I want them MOVED (eg all videos from the downloads folder to the vids folder). Also it would be nice if it could be scheduled for a particular time of day, or, say, every 4 hours.
