move 1 file into a new folder

3 posts in this topic

hi everyone,

I have a folder w/ say 10 .jpg or .txt files. I would like to take 1 file at a time and create a new folder starting with # 1,2,3,etc to move it into.

currently i am able to move ALL files in a folder into another directory using filemove. but i would just like to move 1 and then create incremental folder names

here is an example of what i'm trying to do:

source\ randomname.jpg to \1\randomname.jpg

source\ randomname.jpg to \2\randomname.jpg

etc

i tried piecing this together but not sure how to get it finished and working. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

$sourceFolder = @ScriptDir & "\source"
$destination = @ScriptDir & "\destination" ;UNSURE WHAT TO PUT HERE TO GET THE INCREMENTAL FOLDER NAME

$folderlist = _FileListToArray($sourceFolder)

$numberoffiles = $folderlist[0]

MsgBox(0,"","There are " & $numberoffiles & " to be moved.")

If $numberoffiles = 0 Then
    MsgBox (0,"","No Files Found.")
    Exit
EndIf

For $i = 1 to $numberoffiles Step 1

    $oldfolder = $sourceFolder & "\" & $folderlist[$i]
    $newfolder = $destination & "\" & ;UNSURE WHAT TO PUT HERE TO GET THE INCREMENTAL FOLDER NAME & "\.jpg"

    FileMove($oldfolder, $newfolder)
Next

MsgBox (0,"","Moved a total of " & $numberoffiles)

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
