Hello, I am looking for an app that will give me one instance of each file extension on a PC HDD. I would like to use this info to include in a XXcopy script so I could separate the user files from the os/app files etc. so I could clean up a drive quickly. Thank you in advance.

    It's not clear how this would help speed anything up, since it would add time to any script, but the FOR command allows a [ %~xI ] variable reference format that might reference extensions as you need them. -- Tom

    You may get file extension overlay. Say documentation files for example a plain old .TXT file.This could be a users simple text file or an applications help documentation. I'd approach this issue from the user end. What software do they have and what are the save file formats for that application? If they do not have authorized software, then if they lose their files they should have known better.Anything other than that must be part of the OS or installed authorized  software.
