I would really like to have move feature. I have to jump to rich copy tool to perform this function. it is our responsibility to decide if it is dangerous. you could put couple confirmation options in it. I times I just want to forget about your software becasue of lack of move option since richcopy tool provides all the functions which your tool provides.

Hi, yes, we are thinking to add that.

Can you elaborate on how you would use the move functionality? Would you like ViceVersa to delete the source files if they were correctly copied to target? Would you leave files in target that are not in source or delete them? thanks

Surprised there was not a move (instead of copy / delete)

Yes i think mirror the action in Source and Target, delete original location in Source and target if move (or Rename Sucessful).

And if the file is moved out of the source folder, then default checkbox to dump into a deleted files on target, for extra safetynet.

This is the ONLY advantage that SyncToy seems to have over ViceVersa. If I move a folder in my source, then SyncToy is able to perform that move in the destination folder (Mirror or Sync) rather than doing a delete/copy. This can save hours if you rearrange a large collection of video files. Personally, I would forgo any archiving if a move can be verified and nothing was deleted. I could see that some might wish an archive on a move.

Hi Guys,

I would also like to be able to delete files/folders from a source once they are moved to a target.

Thanks

Mike

I love ViceVersa but it can be more useful if i can move instead to copy the files to the target.

Please, reconsider add this function!

You can move files with copy+delete. The following batch file will delete your source files. You can set your profile to run this batch file as a local script after the profile is run.

Code:
@echo off
REM If the run succeeded, delete the source files and directories.
set dir="[put your source path here]"
set files=*
set subdirs=/S
set noprompt=/Q
IF %VV_EXECUTED% EQU 1 (
 REM The profile was run.
 IF %VV_EXIT_CODE% EQU 0 (
  REM The run succeeded.
  REM -------------------------------------
  REM Delete the files, bypassing the Windows Recycle Bin.
  REM /S Include subdirs.
  REM /Q Quiet (no prompt).
  DEL %subdirs% %noprompt% "%dir%\%files%"
  REM -------------------------------------
  REM Delete the empty directories.
  REM By default, rd will not remove any directory that contains at least one file.
  REM /ad lists only directories.
  REM /b provides bare output format.
  REM /s includes subdirectories.
  for /f "usebackq" %%d in (`"dir %dir% /ad /b /s | sort /R"`) do rd "%%d"
 )
)

I also would like to have the move feature. The last post said it would be available in January, 2018, but I don't see a new version available yet for download. Can you let us know the ETA of this desired feature?

Thanks!
