Does the {y} have to be at the end of the line.
I tried it without and i got an error because
of the colon in next of the Y in Y:\disney\Pixar {n} {y}. How to solve this , should it be {Y:\disney\Pixar {n}} ?

Windows does not allow : colon in file names. You therefore cannot have a folder named "2021 Y:".


:arrow: You may click the green Validate button to strip : colon from the file path before clicking on the Continue button.


:idea: If you want to move files from drive X: to drive Y: then your custom format is bad. You're somehow accidentally generating invalid file paths. You'll want to remove the part that generates the leading X:\2021 part and make sure to generate valid file paths that start with Y:\.

That is automatically generated. How do I revise the format so it works?

We need your format and the output you want e.g.

Code: Select all

Y:\Disney\Pixar\{n} {y}
=
Y:\Disney\Pixar\movie 2020
you can do this if that what you mean ?

Code: Select all

Y:\{y}\Disney\Pixar\{n} {y}
=
Y:\2020\Disney\Pixar\movie 2020
