I have another query with regards to Rawcopy, is there any way I can run multiple commands in a single instance by calling the tool only once?

Isn't this what batch files (or other scripting languages) are made for? ?

Batch script will call the rawcopy.exe thrice in my mentioned example. I would like to know if the same activity can be performed by calling rawcopy.exe only once, something like rawcopy.exe C\pagefile.sys C\swapfile.sys E\Output\

Thanks in advance

Such a change will not be implemented until I see a good enough reason. It's not perfect, but does the job without too much hassle.

Well, it makes not any sense (to me a least) ? .

What is the actual difference? ?

The way the thingy works is to look up for the extents of a file and then copy those extents (re-assembling them if needed) to the output directory with the same file name and extension.

It inherently works one file at the time, so it would anyway be run three times "internally" instead of externally through batch, possibly with the complication that you wouldn't know if there is an issue which file caused it unless joakims adds some specific error reporting code.

Just in case you missed them 😯
