cool this seems to have worked! curious, what was the point behind using prune? played around and experimented with it, i didn't see any change when removing that argument.

after reattempting this, the issue remains unaffected. the terminal apears to complete, but the mbox folders remain with all of the email still inside. FYI right now this has become a point of curiosity, as I have been able to solve this issue with a php script. please post if anything is found that might work. I would rather keep a uniform CLI solution w/out using different programming languages, but im finding this issue to be a stubborn one

Thank you for your response. Both of these commands failed -execdir failed with mv: cannot stat `./file/*' : No such file or directory The full command that I used was: find ./localFolders -name 'file' -type d -execdir mv {}/* . \;
