Copy to two directories or folders simultaneously

Hi all. I was wondering if there is a way to copy one file or folder two two different directories or folders.
e.g: File X needs to be copied to both Folder Y and Folder Z simultaneously. It would save me time to not have to do them separately. I have set up a LB button to copy to one directory/folder and RB to send to another. But this requires two separate actions. Looking for a way to make action possible with one click. Searched but could not find what I was looking for. Apologies if it is somewhere I could not find...

You probably just need to put both commands into a single button. (Click the Advanced button at the bottom of the button editor if it is in single-line mode, so you can enter multiple lines.)

For example, this will copy the selected files to two folders:

Copy TO "D:\Temp\New Folder\Folder 1"
Copy TO "D:\Temp\New Folder\Folder 2"

If you are prompted because a file already exists, be careful. If you skip a file during the first copy, it will be marked as "failed" for the whole operation and thus be skipped in the second copy (whether or not a file with the same name already exists in the second dir).

Thanks, Leo! Worked like a charm.
