Trying to move all images to a single directory

Recommended Posts

How can I modify the following code to move all image file to a specific folder.

The files are all currently in sub-folders within $path.

I want to goto each folder and move any image files (about 100 folders 1K images total

) to $desination (overwrite is ok)



Func FileMover($path,$files,$dest)
    $move=FileFindFirstFile ($path & $files) 
    While $err=1
 $err=FileMove ($path & $move,$dest & $move)
    $move=FileFindNextFile ()

FileFindFirstFile/FileFindNextFile only search the current directory, and only find files, not the subdirectories that need to be searched recursively. So use _FileListToArray() instead, and make the function recursive:

#include <file.au3>

$path = "C:\all" 
$files = ".txt" 
$desination = "C:\new\directory" 

FileMover($path, $files, $desination)

Func FileMover($sSrc, $sMask, $sDest)
    If StringRight($sSrc, 1) <> "\"  Then $sSrc &= "\" 
    If StringRight($sDest, 1) <> "\"  Then $sDest &= "\" 
    Local $avList = _FileListToArray($sSrc) ; list all files and dirs
    For $n = 1 To $avList[0]
        ; Test for directories
        If StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($sSrc & $avList[$n]), "D") Then
            ; Search subdirectory
            FileMover($sSrc & $avList[$n], $sMask, $sDest)
            ; Test file name for search string
            If StringInStr($avList[$n], $sMask) Then FileMove($sSrc & $avList[$n], $sDest & $avList[$n])
EndFunc   ;==>FileMover

    For $i = 1 To UBound($DirsArr)-1
        _FileMoveEx($sPath & "\" & $DirsArr[$i], $dPath, $sMask, $Flag)
        $Extended += @extended
    Return SetExtended($Extended)
