You can move files

File Manager can move files, but caveats apply.

Note: Moving a file may negatively impact established access to the item (for example, a link established in a player for a moved media file would be affected, thereby requiring that you edit the link in the player).

Move an individual file

  1. If necessary, create a new folder to house the moved file.
  2. Navigate to the folder housing the file to be moved.
    Tip: Entries at any level can be filtered based on their "Name", using the Search field.
  3. Locate the desired file and right-click it to display the Move button () option.
  4. In the dialog that is revealed, click the "Change" link.
  5. CP Code "root" folders accessible in the active Storage Group will be revealed. Click the applicable one to open it.
  6. Navigate the tree to locate the desired folder (for example, the one created in Step 1.) and click its Select button ().
  7. Click the Move button.

Moving multiple files ("mass move")

  1. If necessary, create a new folder to house the moved files.
  2. Navigate to the folder housing the files to be moved.
  3. Click the checkbox(es) associated with the item(s) to be moved (or click the checkbox in the table header to select all of the items in the active folder)
    Tip: Entries at any level can be filtered based on their "Name", using the Search field. In addition, the checkbox in the table header, to the left of the Name field (a check if all are selected--; or a minus if multiple selections--) can be clicked to remove all selections.
  4. An interface will appear in the header of the table. Click the Move button ( ).
  5. In the dialog that is revealed, click the "Change" link.
  6. CP Code "root" folders accessible in the active Storage Group will be revealed. Click the applicable one to open it.
  7. Navigate the tree to locate the desired folder (for example, the one created in Step 1.) and click its Select button ( ).
  8. Click the Move button.

You can't move a folder

Folders cannot be moved using this functionality. You can implement the following as a workaround:

  1. Create a new version of the folder in the desired location.
  2. Move the file(s) from the original folder to the new one (using the instructions discussed above).
  3. Finally, if desired, delete the original folder.
