The request is to make a small utility which can gather files from multiple folders (sources) and can copy to single/multiple folder. There's a paid app for it but no freeware/Donationware and just to explain it better I'm pasting a reference of it. THE OLDER FREE VERSION OF SAME APP DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE on Windows 8.1/ Windows 10 (64bit)

Copywhiz was formerly known as 'Piky Basket'.

Copywhiz enhances your file copy experience in Windows. It offers more flexibility when copying files by letting you choose which type of files to copy & which to ignore - Selective File Copy.

You will love to see how easy & fast it is to 1) pick only required files from several folders in a shot, 2) compress only selected files from multiple folders 3) collect files from multiple folders and paste at once 4) and lot more smiley.

This is very useful for sharing only particular set of files with someone, backing up only changed files, automating manual time-consuming file copying tasks etc.
People are interested in it and have made queries for it's alternative in the past on DonationCoder, Some thread links

Hi paarkhi! Great to see you.

I agree this is a useful utility idea -- there needs to be a good free tool for this.

n2nCopy

Drop the files/folders you want to copy on the left side of the window, drop the destination folder on the right, hit copy (or move).

Double-click the window to get the options.

Same here Sir, I hope everything is fine at your end. Actually I hope @Skwire finds time to do it :)

Thanks for suggesting the utility but it'd be good if someone here can make something with a context menu entry and little bit polished/refined interface. It'd be useful for everyone

paarkhi,

did you look at  http://www.dropitproject.com/ freeware including au3 source
from their site:
----
When you need to organize files, DropIt can eliminate much of the drudgery of searching and manually opening folders and moving files around.

Drop a group of different files and folders on the floating DropIt image and it sorts them to defined destination folders, compresses or extracts them, opens them with associated programs or performs other defined actions.

You can define how to filter your files (by name, directory, size, date, properties, content, regular expressions) and associate one of the 20 available actions to perform (Move, Copy, Compress, Extract, Rename, Delete, Split, Join, Encrypt, Decrypt, Open With, Upload, Send by Mail, Create Gallery, Create List, Create Playlist, Create Shortcut, Copy to Clipboard, Change Properties and Ignore). You can also organize your associations in profiles and automatically scan monitored folders at a defined time interval to process included files.
---
instead of the big icon, you can also integrate with SendTo in context menu (see Options).

(please note there are some interworking problems with programs like gridmove and smallwindows)
