Search for Files and copy them with new name
I am having a hard time being able to search through a directory tree through folders looking for certain file extensions and then copying them to a new name...can anyone offer assistance or an idea of what functions I should be looking at.
I can search 1 directory and find my file...but I can seem to search multiple directories.

I noticed from a previous post of yours, that you use Visual C++ on Windows. In this case, use FindFirstFile() and FindNextFile() to recurse through the directory tree. Search http://msdn.microsoft.com for documention on these functions. For an example of how to recurse through the dir tree:
Traverse an NTFS Directory
Note that the code will search through any windows file system (not just NTFS, as the thread title says). Also, it handles files and directories, not just the directories alone. Hope this helps :)
