Relocate existing files to new structure? (4 posts)

    Thank you for this great plugin, I have just picked up a drop box subscription from your referral link :-)

    Question: This works great for new uploads, would love to relocate existing uploads into the new structure however. Any suggestions / tips on how to accomplish this?

    In addition to having to relocate the existing files, I assume you would also need to update the upload meta and posts to reflect the new paths.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you manage to sort this out?

    I've been trying for a while to find a solution but without success so maybe someone knows a trick to achieve this?

    Basically, I noticed that I've got 1500 pictures under the Uploads folder, I was making back-ups regularly but yesterday I moved to a different web hosts and my surprise was that after uploading the files in the Uploads folder a lot of images were missing, so I realized that the FTP server had not been returning ALL pictures inside that folder in previous backups.

    I've now seen and marked that I want the files to be organized in YYYY/MM from now on, but... is it possible to somehow organize ALL the already existing 1500 pics with the same structure? ie, like a plugin or something to move all those pics to previous years/months and update all require links?

    Thanks for any tip, I don't want backups to keep failing in the future...

    Custom Upload Dir applies to uploads. It will not enable you to edit the filesystem.
