    Folks:

    Suppose I have created a site that has its root folder defined as -

    C:\MySites\Wonky\UpsideDownText\DanVendel

    and I want it to instead be in -

    C:\MySites\Perfection\Murray

    Then I would just a) copy everthing within the DanVendel folder and paste it
    into the Murray folder, and then edit the site definition so that the root
    directory is properly specified.

    Bada Bing Bada Boom.

    Make sure you then delete that icky DanVendel folder.

    Sure, "bud". Whatever you say.
    I don't understand why a move to a new root folder is necessary just to
    re-organize files. I'd just do it in the DW file window. But that is of
    course my lowly opinion...

    It's not. I guess we were just illustrating different aspects of the
    problem.
