It sounds like a simple question but if it was I wouldn't be asking it. I can obviously do this by opening all the folders in nautilus and pasting each one individually but the computer is the robot not me (I'm talking about 500 files).
So is there a way of doing this more efficently by gui or command line? either is as good as the other.
If it makes you feel better you will be saving a poor "V" key from severe punishment.
