Check out "Copy Tree". Works like a champ.
Hope this helps.
So copy tree can be used without making a copy? Do I just uncheck the "copy" box and make sure the target path is my new folder?
Chris, Copy Tree will help with cleanup efforts.
My approach with 20+ users here is to limit folder creation in certain areas based on their group permissions because the data needs a basic level of structure and order. I have setup epdm templates to assist them with creating at least a document number folder, then let them drop their files in the place that best fits their working style. Some of them don't use them so the folder cards don't get completed properly which in turn NOW reflects on them because I run reports for their boss that shows engineering drawing status based on data card contents!
There are folders with 50 files in them but essentially in the end, it is their responsibility, read that "their problem" if they don't manage their files properly.
If they complain I've also found the response "Let me see if I hear what you're telling me 'file management is hhhaaaaaarrrrddd'!" Of course, this needs to be accompanied with a blank stare to help them realize what they are actually saying.
Teams will work more effectively in sync with your efforts if they also have ownership in the system.
I submitted an enhancement request to have a 'move' option in Copy Tree.
In the meantime, if you need to retain history I would suggest looking at the MoveTree app on this site:
I guess I missed that "move" portion. My apologies, you only wrote it like 12 times.
Thanks for catching my error Joy.
