    Hey guys,

    A bit of an unusual question. Just wondering if any of you had come across any software that would allow me to do the following.

    I'm generally a pretty unorganized person, but i like to organise in one big chunk, especially with files on my HDD.

    When i go to transfer multiple things at once it slows it down tremendously as the hard drive constantly has to go to different sectors.

    What i'm looking for is essentially a way to queue local transfers as you would for an FTP.

    Example: Move C:\my docos\music\trance to D:\music\trance
    When that is completed move C:\ftp clients\freddy.exe D:\programs

    And so on and so forth. I know it is possible if i setup an ftp only accessible on loopback but i was wondering if there is such a utility that would allow me to better utilize the hard drives in the above fashion.

    I'm pretty tech minded myself as i do actually work in tech support but ive never heard of anything like it. Have any of you?

    Well, you could simply do batch commands in a batch file. Note the "" around file names is necessary for long file names, or any name with an embedded space.

    move "C:\my docos\music\trance" "D:\music\trance"
    move "C:\ftp clients\freddy.exe" "D:\programs"

    Put these in a text file named anything with a .BAT extension and double click on it.
