How do I prevent the generation of subfolders in my destination?

How do I prevent the generation of subfolders in my destination?

If you are not happy with the fact that PhotoSync always creates subfolders with the name of your iOS device and the name of the album from which you are transferring on your target computer or cloud storage service (like FTP, WebDAV, Skydrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, SugarSync), there is a simple way to teach PhotoSync not to create these subfolders.

Just open the PhotoSync settings, choose Configure, then choose your target, e.g. Computer. Each target which is able to support a folder structure offers a setting Create Sub-Directories. This setting implies that PhotoSync always creates the additional subfolders with the name of your iOS device and the name of the album in the target directory.

Disable Create Sub-Directories and PhotoSync will write directly into your selected target directory without creating the additional subfolders.
