Moving a folder on an internal or external drive physically puts the folder and its contents in a new location and deletes the source folder and its contents. This is useful if you want to move all your media into one primary, organized location and do not want to keep a copy of the files elsewhere.

  1. Click the Add Media icon in the top app bar.
  2. Select Add media accessible from this device. A Windows Explorer or macOS Finder window will open. Navigate to the folder you wish to add, then click Open.
  3. Select Move them in the How do you want to get these photos into Mylio Photos? dialog.
  4. In the Move files dialog, examine the options and choose the ones that are right for you.
    • Confirm the folder you wish to Move in the Source field.
    • In the Destination field, select the location where you’d like to store the moved folder.
    • Exclude suspected duplicate files is toggled ON by default. This will skip copying images already added to your Mylio Photos Library.
    • Delete files after adding them is toggled ON by default and will delete all files and subfolders from the source folder after they have been copied to the new location.
  5. Expand Show Advanced Settings for additional organization options and to include additional metadata when importing.
  1. Click the Move Now button to move your folder into your Mylio Photos Library.
