EPDM 2015 - move tree preserve relative paths

Question asked by Chris B. on Sep 27, 2015

Hi all,


This is not working well for us.  For example,


we want to move all files and all sub-folders in this folder

D:\Engineering\Marketing\Display Stands\CAD\Project X


to this new folder

D:\Engineering\Sales\Displays\Project Y


There are 4 subfolders in the Project X folder, so want to use "preserve relative paths" to maintain them, and not have to re-create them all manually.

However, it strangely copies the folder path all the way back to the root folder.  So moving the "Project X" folder to the second folder above should move to:

D:\Engineering\Sales Team\Displays\Project Y


But actually moves to:

D:\Engineering\Sales\Displays\Project Y\Marketing\Display Stands\CAD\Project X


Why would it do that?

More importantly, is there a way to get it to not do that?

Meaning only move the folder we click on, and the sub-folders within it, and NOT re-create even the folder path above it.


Thanks for your help
