Ubuntu :: Move All The Files In All The Folders To One Central Folder?

Nov 20, 2010

I dual boot a computer from separate hard drives in Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04. Here is the deal: On my windows drive I have a folder that is filled with folders inside folders packed full of files in all the folders. There is a 100% possibility that I have multiple copies of any file in multiple locations. Is there any nice command or program to move all the files in all the folders to one central folder and in any way get rid of the multiple copies? Also, how do I compare to files that may or may not have the same name, but otherwise be identical to see if they are identical?

General :: Scripting To Move Thousands Of Files Into Folders

May 25, 2011

Our client has a website (Joomla 1.5 based) to promote participation in and report results of a 10k race for runners in Scandinavia...

The race is scheduled for late June and will be covered by at least 5 still photographers at various points along the race course.

There are to be about 5,000 runners, each entered under a shirt number like bib_1000 through bib_5999, and this means there will be a significant number of digital jpg files submitted by the photographers...

The client has in place some software which will "automagically" resize, watermark, and rename the individual files in the form:

And so on with a possibility of as many as 10 or 12 images in the aggregate with the same alpha-numeric "shirt number" at the beginning of the filename.

Our presentation software does a great job of handling thumbnail image generation and displaying a slideshow in a lightbox of all files within a given folder on the webserver.

And now finally the question...

Given a folder containing 25,000 or so *.jpg files, how can we write a script that:

1. parses the filenames to unique "shirt numbers"
2. makes folders with each "shirt number" as the foldername
3. moves the files from the root of the original folder into the appropriate "shirt number" folder.

Note that the order of my list above is not important, and if you know of a better way to organize the task we are fine with that.

General :: Write A Script To Move Specific Files In Various Folders To One Folder?

Nov 16, 2010

Terribly new to Linux and find it mindboggling. I work on brain imaging and unfortunately all of the analysis runs on Linux, and I do not understand computers well coming as I do from a medical background. So my question - There are various folders of patient MRI scans (folders called P1, P2, P3 etc) and within them are enclosed certain files that I am interested in (always called the same name in all folders, say image001). I would like a script that enables me to copy and move this image001 in all these individual folders to another folder altogether.

Ubuntu :: Delete Folders Or Files On NTFS Partition Not A Option To Move To Waste Basket

Nov 24, 2010

10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?

Ubuntu :: Move Multiple Files Via Command Line?

Sep 15, 2010

I liked the idea of the "cosmos" screensaver/desktop, but wanted to add my own pictures to the application. I navigated to /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos and tried to drag and drop. I quickly found that I did not have permission to do this.

I googled my problem and found some command line tutorials telling me to sudo cp. My problem is that I have about 30 pics that I want to move in there, and I don't think I can just move the directory, they have to be in that folder as the pictures themselves.

I don't really feel like typing the cp line multiple times with multiple randomly named image files.

Is there a way to have the command line cp all of my files from one directory to another?

General :: Move Some Of The Files From Multiple Directories To One Location?

Jun 17, 2010

I'd like to move a selection of files from all the sub-directories within an overall directory to a single destination. I don't want any of the directory structure, just the files themselves. This is what I tried so far:

mv /dir1/*/igs*.sp3.Z /dir2

There are other .sp3.Z files in the * directories within /dir1 but I just need the ones that start with igs..

Ubuntu :: Move A File To A Nautilus Window With Folders In List View?

Nov 23, 2010

I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution? (Using GNOME nautilus 2.30.1)

General :: Move Folders That Contain A File With A Specific Extension To A Destination Folder?

Oct 3, 2010

Many years ago, I converted a portion of my files to an arbitrary format with a specific extension. i no longer desire to have them in this format and i would like begin the process of replacing them because conversion is not an appropriate solution. unfortunately, they are mixed in separate folders of the same root folder with files in my current format of a different extension. I feel it would make this process easier if I were to move every folder that contained a file with the undesired format to a separate root folder. The files are stored on a Linux server and shared via samba. How can I do this with a couple of commands or a script? I am open to other suggestions as well. I want to avoid time spent editing text files. Ultimately, I'd like a command that produced a list of full paths for folders, sorted by the number of levels would be a nice touch. A list of all of the files is clearly not what I'm looking for.

Ubuntu :: Zipping Contents Of Multiple Folders?

Oct 8, 2010

I have a set of folders in some directory /home/dir, and I'd like to generate zip files for the contents of each folder separately. I'm wondering if there's a quick way to do this with a one-liner, or what the bash script would be.

Directory structure: /home/dir/first/second/thirdand I want three files, first.zip, second.zip, and third.zip. I know zip isn't the best format, but these are for distribution to users on Windows machines and I'd prefer to keep them in the zip format.

Ubuntu :: Explain The Multiple Firefox Default Folders?

Mar 14, 2010

Under /home/username/.mozilla I have a default folder which contains folders named "aqeif3n4.slt" and "cache". Under /home/username/.mozilla/Firefox I also have more default folders such as "6ajy4rl7.default", "ad2fpe1q.default" and "ivkrjhk8.default". I do not understand what the default folder under /home/username/.mozilla is for. I am sure that the .default folders under /home/username/.mozilla/Firefox are my Firefox files (duh!) but why are there more than one? Is a new one created every so often so you have copies from past time periods? Or what?

Ubuntu :: Unity Files And Folders Search Doesn't Show 'old' Files?

Jul 20, 2011

I have noticed that the files and folders search in Unity, only shows up those files which have been amended (or possibly just opened) since the install.

i was wondering if there was a way i could have the search index (or something vaguely equivalent) all the files on my machine. This is especially important given that i reinstall the OS every six months on a new distribution cycle, copying all my old files across.

Without being able to see my old files the search is pretty much reduced to a recent history search.
