Is there a problem when creating folders directly inside the datfile directory?
I find it easier that way and then to copy the datfiles there and then hitting "refresh list".

But if i want to move profiles into another folder in CMP with "Move Profile(s)" i get:
Moving DatFile failed
Check diskspace and names

If i create the folder directly in CMP profiler this does not happen.

Tested with the last nightly build, no problem with  "Move Profile(s)".
Test differents scenarious about "moving" profiles, whole it's fine.
P.S. : What version u have - portable, installer, x86,x64 ?

You did create the folders in the Windows explorer and not in CMP?

Well, you need to know what happens if you move a profile. It's not just a movement of a datfile. Actually cmpro's datfile and settings folder follow the same strucutre. A profile is both, settings and a connected datfile..and actually also fastscan, logs and other folders are involved.

The settings file holds information about the relative paths. So just moving a datfile or just a settings file is not a good idea unless you also update the references.

It's no problem if you add new datfiles and folders via windows explorer, but as soon as a profile is created you should handle it within cmpro.
