Creating new folders from file names



You can use the "Create Folder Dynamic.FM" script with the command line feature of FileMonkey. This will create a new empty folder in every sub-folder of the target path. The new folder will be named using the file name.

If you want to create folders with a static name, use the "Create Folder Static.FM" script.

Note that although this script will work as required, FoldMonkey (a more user friendly package) can also do this.

If you want to create folders and then copy or move files, use the "Copy" feature of FileMonkey.

Read on for step-by-step instructions to create a new empty folder in every sub-folder named using filename:

1.

Use the folder tree in the main window to target the root folder (the path that you wish to work on). Click HERE for a targeting tutorial.

2.

Select the "Quick-Find / Command Line" menu item.

3.

The Create/Run batch file window should now be open

4.

Select the "File / Load Code" menu item.

Use this box to navigate to the folder that FileMonkey is installed in (This is usually something like: C:\Program Files\FileMonk)

Select the file "Create Folder Dynamic.FM" and click the "Load" button.

6.

To start the operation, select the "File / Compile And Run" menu item.
