Need files in folder to move, not copy...

I have a networked folder at work. It is our scan folder, so if we scan something on one of our multiuse printers, the file is sent to this folder and then anyone on the network can access it from their PC.

 

When I go into this folder to retrieve a file, I click and drag it from the network folder to the area on my computer where it will remain, but the original file stays in the network folder. I'd really like to configure the settings so that the file will move, not copy, but I don't know how to do this. Any help is appreciated.

 

Hope this makes sense...it's 4 PM on a Friday so my brain isn't working at its peak :)

Hi,

 

Does your user have permissions to delete/write on the shared folder?

 

Where is the shared folder created (windows server, Linux server, NAS, etc.)?

Would Cut & Paste work for you?
  • Highlight (select) the file(s) in question
  • Cut the selected item(s): Ctrl+X
  • Paste the selected item(s): Ctrl+V

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

I believe so, everyone can delete files.

 

The reason I am asking is because we are about to be digitizing some records that need to be scanned to this folder and then transferred to an external HD. We have an intern who will be working on this, and I'm sure she's computer-savvy but it would be easiest for everyone involved if the files would transfer from the scan folder to the external HD and not need to be deleted from the scan folder as well.

 

The folder is hosted on a computer in our building that is running Windows. I just added a shortcut to the folder on everyone else's desktop. Hope that answers your question.

Ideally we would use our newer multi-function printer because the external HD could just be plugged in there and the scans could go directly to the HD, but we have another digitization project going on and that is also our busiest printer (work in a public library, that's the printer our patrons print to) so she would be constantly interrupted. Scanning has to be done on our older Xerox with no way to plug the HD into it.

Make sure you confirm that because the PC could be using some user to access the shared folder that lacks the correct permissions.

 

The computers are connected to a Domain on working individually in a Workgroup?

They are all part of the same Workgroup.

Hold down the shift key and the file will move instead of copy
