Move files into a new non-existing sub-folder

Postby bradwjensen » Tue Feb 14, 2017 12:01 am

I want to move a bunch of files into a new sub-folder that does not yet exist inside the folder containing the files. Is this possible, and if so, how?

Try Copy/Move to Location (13)

I figured that much, but I don't know how to create the new sub folder where the files currently are..

I tried "\NewFolderName" but that obviously puts the folder on the root C drive. I can't use ".\NewFolderName" either.

Do you have any tips?

I need to move:

E:\Photos\YEAR\YEAR-MONTH-DAY\file.jpg
to
E:\Photos\YEAR\YEAR-MONTH-DAY\Export\file.jpg

I can't figure out how to print the current folder path before "\Export\" in the "Copy/Move to Location (13)"

I found out that "\Export\" will put the files in "C:\Export\"
and "..\Export\" places the files in "C:\Program Files\Export\"

Hi, this is not possible yet, it will be possible in the next release.
