move subset of files externally



  • Ian Wilson
    The key to this is not to move the files using Windows Explorer. Instead, do it within Capture One, using the Library tools. Find the files on Drive A that you want to move then drag and drop them to the desired location on Drive B (within the Library tool Folders section. That way, Capture One keeps track of where the image files are.

    Alternatively, if you have moved a whole folder of images from Drive A to Drive B, you can use the Locate function to tell Capture One where the whole folder is - you don't have to do it image-by-image. Right click the folder in the Folders section and choose Locate...


    Edited to add: you may well want to keep everything together on one drive, but a Capture One catalog can work OK with images on more than one drive.

    Thanks for the reply, Ian, and the general info.

    The trouble is that the files are spread out across multiple folders, and I don't see an obvious way within CO to filter files by pathâ€"are you aware of any such function? What it seems like I'd want is to do a search for all files containing "A:" and move them, but it doesn't seem straightforward to do so.
