Move Files

Move one or more existing files to a folder.


  • Source

  • Specifies a full-qualified path and filename. The standard Microsoft MS-DOS wild cards are permitted in the file-name position. Multiple file names may be specified by separating entries with a semi-colon. For example: c:\documents\*.*, c:\documents\*.doc;*.jpg;*.inc. It will have unpredictable results, if you use the relative paths.

  • Exclude mask

  • Specifies one or more source file names which don't move at this operation. Each file name must be terminated by a single semicolon, and standard Microsoft MS-DOS wild cards, such as "*", are permitted in the file-name position. The wild cards name "*.*" does not allowed.

  • Match case

  • Specifies whether the search finds the source files which names match the case of characters in the Files or folder name exactly.

  • Include sub-folders

  • Specifies whether the search extends to the sub-folders of the Source folder.

  • Destination folder

  • Specifies a full-qualified name of the destination folder. This parameter must be not empty and wild cards are not permitted in the name position. It will have unpredictable results, if you use the relative paths.

  • Create destination folder if it does not exist

  • Specifies whether to attempt to create the destination folder if the folder does not exist. If the option is unchecked and the destination folder is not existed either, the action will not be started.

  • Overwrite if destination file exists

  • Specifies whether to overwrite the destination file when it does exist in the destination folder.

  • Keep sub-folders structure

  • Specifies whether to create the subfolder under the destination folder. If this option is unchecked, all of the source files will be moved into the destination folder, and it is possible to occur several files with the same name. As a result, these files will be renamed by adding a number at the end of its name for distinguishing, e.g. abc.txt, abc01.txt, abc02.txt.


    You could filter files based on the attribute settings of the source files. For more information, please refer to Attributes Filter.

    To exclude certain sub-folders, the folder name must be preceded by a backslash character \ in the field Exclude mask. For example: \My Pictures;\My Music;.
