    Why do people insist on putting exiftool in for loops? The -r option is designed for this purpose. The following command will accomplish the same thing as your for loop (except that sub-subfolders will also be processed):

    exiftool -r -previewimage -b -w %tmp%/%d%f.%e ???D300S

    There is a big speed advantage in only running exiftool once like this.

    The only thing I’m not sure about is the expansion of environment variables in your shell, since you obviously don’t want “%d%f.%e” to be expanded.
