    I don't think you will find the code for this but you can hire someone to make you a custom .batch file which will make this

    There's some pretty decent software called Dragonfly File Sorter jargogle.co.uk/software/dragonfly which can probably do what you want. It's got a free version too

    I did same through:

    1) Placing all data in Excel
    2) Making DOS command in Excel and later saving it in to Test.BAT file

    Once you execute .BAT files in DOS, it will do bulk activities and in my case, it was moving files to specif folders that I set using Excel.
