    Hi, I currently have a folder with 100s of sub folders, each of which have 4 files. I would like to move the 4 files from each sub-folder to the root folder, but would hate to do it one by one.

    Is there a quick way to do this? Many thanks!

    You could use the search feature if the files all have the same suffix (file extension) and then select all the found files and move them to the root folder open in another window.
    That's what I did the last time I had something similar to do.

    I think you could write a Pearl script to do it.

    I think you mean Perl. And pretty much any scripting language could do this.
