  1. Laptop crashed and I need to copy several files from a floppy after booting with a floppy.

    I can copy one at a time, but need help in copying all at one time.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to TechSpot Forums

    You can copy all files in one directory by using asterisks, ie.

    copy *.* wherevertheygo

    xcopy can copy directories recursively with parameter /E or /S. Some other command prompts, such as 4dos, have advanced copy commands too.
