Moving marked files
« on: March 06, 2012, 19:33:25 »
We have option to move marked files but can we have option to move files and preserve folder structure.

For example, I mark D:\Songs\Set1\Album1\Track01.mp3
And tell to move to D:\Dup
Then instead of getting file like D:\Dup\Track01.mp3
Can we get at D:\Dup\Songs\Set1\Album1\Track01.mp3

Shouldn't be too difficult. Instead of saving D:\Dup\Track01.mp3 you have to "subtract" the source root path (here D:\Songs) from full path and append the rest to the target path D:\Dup\Songs. Three string processing calls in Java or C would do the job. It's a standard procedure when moving trees.

Hello,

Maybe you could use my way.
Create a mirror copy of your data (before deletion), delete the file on the orignial folder, and with "freefilesync" software, moves the deleted file from the mirror copy because this software allow to keep directory.

Thank you.
