How to use Midnight Commander to organize files
I have three large hard drives all loaded with vast mixtures of all sorts of files. I want to organize them for a change but how? A search will find all the files but then what? Move them one at a time? Is there a search prg that will find and select all of a certain type (like jpg) so I can drag them all at once to a new directory?
If you want to search inside only the needful folders then you can use this example.
Open "~/.mc" directory.
If you will click over the "ini" file then "Geany" text editor will open it.
Over there can be a section which is called "[FindFile]" with the line "ignore_dirs=". You can use it.
ignore_dirs=/mnt/sda1/ProgramData:/mnt/sda1/Program Files:/mnt/sda1/System Volume Information:/mnt/sda1/Windows:/mnt/sda1/Users/Administrator:/mnt/sda1/Users/user1:/mnt/sda1/Documents and Settings/Public/Music:/mnt/sda1/Documents and Settings/Public/Videos:/mnt/sda1/Users/Public/Music:/mnt/sda1/Users/Public/Pictures/Sample Pictures
