Different subfolders depth Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:24 am • by marcinsadowski27

I want to make rule that has different subfolders depth - don't know if it's the right word I use, but let me explain what I exactly want.

Lets say I have a MAIN FOLDER which has two subfolders: FOLDER "A" and FOLDER "B". In those subfolders are also subfolders but in FOLDER "A" I have 4 of them and in FOLDER "B" I have only 3 of them. In the last subfolders in "A" and "B" there are some PDF files that I want to Sort into another newly created subfolder in both "A" and "B" folders. This is how the path looks like just in case to see what I'm talking about. (I wasn't able to add screenshot here so I'm writing it down by hand)

....-> FOLDER "A"
........-> Sub1
...........-> Sub2
..............-> Sub3
.................-> Sub4
....................-> PDF-File.pdf
.....-> FOLDER "B"
........-> Sub1
...........-> Sub2
..............-> Sub3
.................-> PDF-File.pdf

So as I mentioned I want to sort those files (lets say that there are many PDF files) into Subfolders but don't go any further so I assume I have to set up Subfolders Depth rule to not exceed 5 (if I'm right), but that's not the point. Lets say I set it up the right way into FOLDER "A" - the FOLDER "B" has only 3 subfolders, so it will continue sorting my PDF files into another subfolders until it meet the "5" in Subfolders depth rule and that's not what I wanted. I want to stop it on 4. In general I want to sort into subfolders only once in both cases and that's it. Even if there is only 1 subfolder or aren't any at all.

I would be really grateful if you could help me setting up a rule that covers this. I'm complete newbie in this software - but already pretty amazed of its possibilities!

You want to sort into subfolders of Sub4 and Sub3 respectively? You could add a tag after sorting them and then filter on that tag to prevent further sorting. Other than that, I'd need to know more specifics about the folder structure.
