To create a batch file, you need to follow certain steps. Click 'Start' menu, go to 'All Programs', move to 'Accessories' and select 'Notepad' from there. Enter the commands in the notepad for making batch file. Then, save it with an extension cmd or bat for example:-filename.cmd. Suppose, you want to save your images in E: drive. The batch file for this purpose may be like xcopy 'E:\Documents and Settings\username\My documents\My images' 'D:\ 'Image back up/e/y'. This batch file will make a copy of your images in E: drive and paste it on the folder 'Image backup' on D: drive. If you simple put D:, then the backup file will overlap the existing file. So, always create a new folder and then backup. /e means backup all directories and sub directories whereas /y indicates overwrite on existing files.
