Windows 7: How to move/copy files together with it's folder

How to move/copy files together with it's folder

Hi everyone..

I am in a bit of trouble here. I have 1000+ collection of movies. All these movies are mixed, some are in SD format avi, and some in full HD mp4 format. All these movies are located under one folder, My Movies Collection. Underneath it, all the movies have their own respective folder for example Movie Title 1, Movie Title 2, and so on. Under all this Movie Title X, there are the files (Movie title.avi/mp4,movie title.srt,etc). I am using Media Center Master software to automatically create the folder and rename all the movies accordingly.

Now I am planning to separate these movies to 2 SD and HD folders. Therefore under the My Movies Collection folder, there are 2 folders My Movies SD and My Movies HD. Since the files/folders are more than 1000+. it is quite hard for me to differentiate between which folders having the avi, or which one having the mp4.

Could you guys suggest is there any 3rd party tool to help me on this matter? Or built in Windows apps? Just now I tried using Windows 7 search function *.avi, but when I move the files onto the My Movies SD folder, only the file is being moved, not the whole folder.

I would be very grateful if you guys can help me on this.

Pardon me for my English since I am from Malaysia.

Cheers guys!!!

This software will copy the files and re-create the folders. You can filter by file type too.
