Try using specialised desktop search tools like Google Desktop or windows desktop search

I don't think it would be possible using a batch or script unless the address or phone number were some fixed format or length, or contains some identifier that tells the batch or script what text is an address or phone number.

Phone numbers would not be very difficult. Search for groups of numbers in the following formats:
1234567890, 123-456-7890, (123) 456-7890, 4567890, or 456-7890
if found continue searching for the same string
if the same sstring found a second time, copy the file to a found folder.

Not sure how to approach addresses.
