A site has thousands of images in the uploads folder. ISP has threatened to shut it down because it is about to exceed server limits for the max number of files in one directory.
I looked at the Settings > Media panel and there is the unchecked option "Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders"
If I check this, what will happen to the existing images in the uploads directory (will they be re-organized?)
If not, can someone recommend a way/plugin to refile them in the new structure? I'd like to tidy up.
