    How to change the directory of a folder?


    Hi,

    I am quite stuck right now trying to make it so that i can change the directory of one folder to another. I have researched the web about this but all of the solutions which i have received were only for changing the directory of the User Folder(Desktop, Downloads etc.) but my problem is that I want to change the directory of a folder which is one of my hard drives onto a different hard drive which is connected to my Windows computer. I have tried to go through the Registry Editor and tried find the folder but then realized that it was useless.


    Here is the rough sketch of what I am wanting to achieve:

    I want to change the directory of the folder D:\Something\XYZ to E:\Pics\XYZ


    I have went through YouTube videos but all of them only suggest for the User folders which are easily changeable but not any allowing me to change the directory of ANY folder I want(Not any system folders).

    Therefore, can someone please give me a solution on if there is an application or some method which allows the user to change the directory of a sub folder within a hard drive to another place.


    Thanks In Advance,

    Hemanth

    :)

  2. Directory Size Utility

    Thanks buddy! Yea, this section's not dead. Kreij and I have big plans for this section. I don't want to give nothing away, but we have some bigger projects down the road. *Toast :toast: I feel I'm pretty good at coding with different languages, but I'm well behind Kreij's level of experience with those other Languages. I've been working on those other languages, and soon I'll feel comfortable enough to start, and not feel like I'm holding the project back. *Toast :toast:

    Now on to your suggestions.

    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that? Yea, that's been bothering me and I like your suggestion "Add Folder". I'll change it on the next release.
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs) I could add this, but let me see if I understand what you're asking. By subfolders you mean add all the folders in the left panel to the right panel? Those folders are all the subfolders in the "Get folder".
    • maybe you also add export list to excel? I'll add this on the next release.
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too? I'll add this on the next release.
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories? I'll add this on the next release.
    These are all great suggestions! Thanks Drone! *Toast :toast:
