So I’ve been looking for a while an option to flag a directory with “Moved” folder.
Why would I need it? Well, for example, when downloading a torrent files, I would like to move some of the content but in the same time to keep the originals for seeding. So in order to remember what was moved and what wasn’t I would have to:
1. Create a new folder
2. Rename it to some name, like “Moved”
The fastest way to do this is by Ctrl+Shift+N and renaming.
Sounds simple, but when doing it a lot you start thinking about automation.
So here is a simple code which can update your registry to add 2 options:
1. Right click on any folder on the Windows Explorer side bar would have “Mark Moved” entry
Copy the following to a text file, rename .txt to .reg and run.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Command"="\"CMD\" /D /E:ON /c for /F \"tokens=*\" %%a IN (\"%1\") do md \"%%~dpa\\Moved\""
@="CMD.EXE /C MD \"%1\\Moved\""
The information was merged form the following two sources:
Next steps would be to add an icon to the explorer toolbar or ribbon.
Tested on Windows 8.
