Q&A 17: Is it possible to move files and create a folder with limagitoX

Q: Is it possible to move files and create a folder by partial files name by limagitoX.

For example: in folder A, we have files which are named as XXX-TC.txt, XXX-KR.txt, XXX-JP.txt, XXX-SC.txt and we want to move those files to XXX folder? I want to use “-” as a parameters to defile the folder name.

A: Yes this is possible using a combination of two options in your destination setup.

First, in the ‘File & Directory Tab’ of your destination setup, enable ‘Create Subdir’ option and set it to:  %SFN

We will use the filename as a base part when creating the subdirectory in the second step.
