Help with creating sub-folders

Post by Beniled » 22 Feb 2022, 19:39

I want to be able to use the "Use Target File Parent URL Regular Expression to create sub-folder" Function to be able to create a folder structure as follows: [#1]\[#3] were it would create #3 as a subfolder of #1 in the destination folder. When I use [#1]\[#3] I just get a folder called [#1] [#3] where [#1] and [#3] are the match from the Regex. So like instead of the expected Folder\Subfolder I get a single folder called "Folder Subfolder".

Do I need to escape the "\"?

It should be working just the way you want unless you check the [ Replace slashes with this text ] box on the [ Additions ] tab. It should create actual sub-folders. Do you have that option checked?

If you don't, then I'll need your actual URLs for the tests. It would be even better if you can send me your project file to
