Syncing between my Google Filestream, Google Drive, and Synology CloudSync and got all messed up and I'm left with hundreds of duplicate folders with the folder name followed by a "(1)" or "(2)" etc., and going up to "(1) (1) (1)".
Do you know of a program or script that can merge these folders?
Example top-level folder structure:
1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (1) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (2) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (3) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (3) (1) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (3) (1) (1) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (4) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (5) 1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (6)
Because subfolders sometimes also have the same problem, the program or script would need to be able to merge folders that follow that naming pattern for all subfolders, example:
Example 2nd level folders:
1100 Beetledwarf - Happy ATE (6) Analysis Analysis (1) Smirckle_HL Smirckle_HL (2) Pending Reports Photos & Logos
The best solution would also allow me to move files instead of copying them since it takes a long time to copy files but moving is almost instantaneous.
List of things I've already tried, but none of them can deal with the "name (1)" folder structure (that I can tell so far), and all of them copy files instead of moving them:
- WinMerge for Windows 10 <- chokes when trying to copy google drive files (returns something like "DOS command not supported" for them)
- Meld for MacOS. <- slow.
- Terminal with "ditto" command in OS X <- Best option so far.
Thanks for your help!
