Drop Zone is a handy Windows application that creates file transfer hot spots on your desktop. Drag the files onto the hot spot and select from your list of predetermined destinations.

Sure, if you only have one or two folders you regularly copy files to you could just create a simple folder shortcut. For larger lists (where you wouldn’t want to clutter up your desktop with a dozen folder shortcuts) or complex operations (such as distinguishing between copying and moving), Drop Zone offers unique features. Creating a Drop Zone is as simple as extracting the portable application and editing the .INI file to include the folders you wish to shuttle files to. You can make as many Drop Zones as you wish (one for copying and one for moving files, for example) by simply copying your original Drop Zone and renaming the executable.
