There's no built-in concept of "moving" library files, and any such tool would be destructive in the sense that they would no longer exist in their original locations.

Instead, I built a tool for copying a group's entire library to another group. See attachment. I then ran the tool to copy each item from to At this point, any unwanted items can be deleted. I'm not sure I understand the list provided to do the deletions myself, but in any case it should be a fast task (much faster than re-uploading the whole library).

He replies:

Thanks Boone. I thought that's what you might do but just in case I gave you the list of the ones I needed. Easy enough to do the deletions myself. Thanks for doing this. Hope you and your family are well.
