There have been a few suggestions made, but I'd like to know how automated you want this. You're talking about LOTS of files and folders. You might think about Adobe Capture. It will cost about $1000, but you can set up conditions, watched folders, and specify output directories. It won't be completely automated, but it works fairly simply. On the high end, you might want to look at Input/Accel from Input Software, or Kofax Ascent Capture. Both could do the same, but probably a little less manually. Costs can run high with these products, however.

If you're trying to convert 150,000 files across 2,000 directories, it seems to me you have a choice - either spend you're time and money developing the process (by means of custom software, or other) or by managing the actual conversion. 2 points that may help:

  1. Is this a one-time project?
  2. Do you anticipate needing to do this again with other files?

Either way, it looks like you're going to have to make an investment of some sort.
