I’m trying to transfer a list of KNIME workflows from their original destinations in a KNIME workspace into one folder in the workspace using the -Transfer Files (table)- node, however it fails on execution.
When I check the destination folder, I can see that all the sub folders of the workflow and their files get transferred but the files within the root directory eg. “workflow.svg” do not.
Workflow can be found here:
Any suggestions to overcome this issue? Perhaps its a bug?
@HeatherPikairos OK I think I know what is going on. The Transfer Files node would not copy the whole structure but would try to put all the single files into the same (top) traget folder - which will result in unwanted structures.
To solve this one would have to use absolute paths (otherwise the List/Files node would ‘recognize’ the workflows and not include them and their files it seems) to scan all files and folders and then replace the original (source) path part with the target path part …
Yes that would be nice. I have never though about the point that it would not transfer whole folder structures but ‘just’ put all files in a single folder or you would have to provide individual paths.
