Please give this a test and let me know if it works how you envisioned

It's nearly perfect (and already saving me a ton of time). The only thing I would change is, as of right now, using the %rp% token gives the full folder structure, starting at the drive/partition.
For example: my folder structure for a shoot this past weekend goes:
            2014_05_31-wed-[client name]

Then the various subfolders within the 2014_05_31-wed-[client name] folder. When I use the %rp%, it includes the "PHOTOS"; "2014"; "2014_05-May_2014" bit inside the "2014_05_31-wed-[client name]" folder when I set it to the root. Any way to bypass this? If not, I'm fine with just dragging the newly created folders back into the "2014_05_31-wed-[client name]" folder and deleting the old string. It's still saving me a lot of time by automating it.

Again, thank you so much! this is immensely helpful.

Hey skwire, were you ever able to add in an option for a root folder as a prefix?

New to the DonationCoder and to Text 2 Folders here. Like some others, I'm a photographer and creating the same set of folders for each event I shoot is tedious. Using Text 2 Folders, I can create a root folder and have the subfolders I use in an event created, without having to go through one-by-one and type in the names.

I do have a question though: is there any way to create subfolders with the root folder's name as a prefix?

A typical event for me will look like:
Root folder: yyyy_MM_dd-[event type]-[client name]
Sub folders: yyyy_MM_dd-[event type]-[client name]-[image type]

For example:
   2014_04_28-wed-smith-reject RAW
   2014_04_28-wed-smith-master RAW

The only way I have been able to attach the date/event/name prefix is to copy and paste it in to the front of my \[subfolder] in the text file or in the manual entry within Text 2 Folders. Eliminating the copy/paste of the root's name would be a huge time saver.

Thanks in advance! It's wonderful to have a accessible program like this with a responsive community working around it.
