File Copying and Moving

9 - Comet

If you want to move or copy files without using cmd or powershell solutions you can now install this tool made with the Python SDK.




You can choose to keep the filenames the same but you can also rename them at the same time. It's a yxi package you can download and install from my Github site.


Happy moving!

Want to start off by saying, amazing work on this tool.


I'm having trouble figuring out how to select the directory I wish to copy and move my files to. What I'm trying to do is copy & move all files in a folder to another folder on a separate drive. I'm using the directory tool to select the folder I want targeted for the move, but selecting where I'm sending them is where I'm getting caught up. 


Thanks for any help you guys can provide!
