I am looking to automate moving large amounts of files. Basically I have one location on our network full of .zip files. They are all named like "12-3456.zip" etc. I need to move each of these .zip file to a different location on our network which contains pre existing folders already named. Need to move the .zip file to the folder with the same name. I found something similar to this here but is seems to choke on large amounts of files.

Any help/advice/experience with similar problem?
