    Open File Explorer in This PC, type ext:xls to Search. This searches the whole PC for files with extension XLS or an extension starting with XLS (like XLSX). When done, select all files and copy them, paste to anywhere where you want to store them.

    Search ext:xls returns all variants of xls

    You could also try:
    Free Utility: RichCopy, an Advanced Alternative to RoboCopy
    -- OR --
    You could create a Scheduled task that runs RoboCopy with the parameters that meet your requirements.
