Using 'search' to copy documents

Member Lennard Van Otterloo shares a fast way to move lots of documents from multiple folders into a single directory.

Does your fileserver have a lot of documents in a lot of folders? Would you like to move them to a single directory?

Opening over a 100 folders to select perhaps five documents in each folder can take a very long time. Using the search function from the root of your storage directory and searching for *.* gives you all the files in just one window. Easy selectable (and sortable), no matter how deep the folder structure runs.
