Batch move files up 1 directory from that files current dir


Author Message
nate How to move all .jpg files up 1 directory from their current directory.

Example:

Code:

Currently.......

dirA
  |
  --dir1
    |
    --dir-i-dont-want
      |-image1
      |-image2
      |-image-etc...

  --dir2
    |
    --dir-i-dont-want
      |-image1
      |-image2
      |-image-etc...

  --dir3
    |
    --dir-i-dont-want
      |-image1
      |-image2
      |-image-etc...

  --dir500,000-etc....
    |
    --dir-i-dont-want
      |-image1
      |-image2
      |-image-etc...



I would like to simply move all images up ONE directory from their CURRENT directory. So that they would look like this...


Code:

dirA
  |
  --dir1
    |-image1
    |-image2
    |-image-etc...

  --dir2
    |-image1
    |-image2
    |-image-etc...

  --dir3
    |-image1
    |-image2
    |-image-etc...

  --dir500,000-etc....
    |-image1
    |-image2
    |-image-etc...



This would do it if these were on a a linux box... mv `find /dirA -name *.jpg` ../

Hi,
short answer is, you can't.

We will add this functionality to FileMonkey and update this forum when we have done so.

This will hopefully take approx 2 business days.

Regards,
monkeyjob.

Hi,
we have now added the required feature to FileMonkey version 10.26. You can download the latest version from:

or if you are a registered user, select the Help/Update menu item from the main window.

There is some basic help on this new feature available here:
