Media Collector and Folder Structure What Gets Copied Where RRS feed

  • Question

  • What gets copied where with the Media Collector?  Is there a way to modify what gets copied and to where?   Say for "Movies", I like the word Movies as opposed to Videos, and I don't like my Movies under Videos, and that there is more than one Public folder.  The folder structure on the WHS server is what i'd like explained and how it relates to my PC's folder structure.  thanks all.

  • The media collector is created and supplied by your OEM, not Microsoft. Unfortunately there's no way to alter the built-in behavior.

    As for how it organizes the files it collects on your server, if you drill down through the structures it creates, you'll see that it identifies files by computer and location on that computer, to avoid overwriting files from one computer with files from another.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
