Batch: Copying Files from Discs

I find myself with (far too) many DVDs full of files that I’d like on a hard drive (not gonna happen, there are more than 3TB on these and I just don’t have that much free space).

This batch file is currently saving me some time

The DVDs are numbered, and I want to keep the contents organised that way, with this I only need to type the correct number once per session.

It uses Microsoft’s Robocopy to do the copying.

NirCmd is a rather useful utility from NirSoft, I’m using it to pop my DVD drive open (makes it nice and obvious when the copy finishes). It does have a ton of other functions though, and NirSoft has a LOT of instantly usable apps for various things.

Not a terribly interesting or clever script, but here it is anyway.
