6.9 Moving Files

Novell Filr enables you to move files into any folder where you have appropriate rights, including to and from Net Folders. The access control settings for the file are changed to match the access control settings of the destination folder.

IMPORTANT:Any shares associated with this file are removed when moving a file from your My Files area to a Net Folder, or from a Net Folder to your My Files area. This means that this file will no longer be displayed in users’ Shared with Me and Shared by Me areas after it is moved.

If you do not have sufficient rights, this option is not available to you.

  1. Navigate to the folder that contains the files that you want to move.

  2. Select one or more files that you want to move.

  3. Click More > Move.

  4. Choose one of the following actions:

    • In the Destination Folder field, begin typing the name of the folder where you want to move the files, then click the folder name when it appears.

    • Click the Browse icon and browse to and select the folder where you want to move the files.

    • If the location where you want to move the file is already displayed in the Current Destination Folder field, you do not need to make any selection. The Current Destination Folder field displays the destination where you most recently copied or moved an item.

  5. Click OK.
