    DNG converter: what's the command line to "Skip source image if exists" option?

    Pedro Cortez Marques Level 3

      I'm using Adobe DNG Converter 8.3.0.141 to convert more then a Million of raw images in thousands of diferent folders.

       

      It is working well, but first I must prepare and rename with a script some of the folders and then collect all the paths to a xml file.

      In each folder path I temporary put a bat file (windows7) that is my command file and my script will wait for for the bat to finish and then delete the raws and goes to the next pre-processed folder collected from the xml.

      I had to rush a bit and I have manage to use several PCs running the batch and it is running ok.

       

      How can I use inside the bat file command to activate:

      "Skip source image if destination image already exists"?

      The need for this is because sometimes the raw files are not deleted after the conversion and it will collect again that folder to convert again. So I need to tell not to convert if already exist.

       

      And please, why adobe puts on-line an old and incomplete PDF manual for the cammand line tags:
