It's not working that way, Reader and Writer are totally independant from each other, and they're handling files, not folders. File Reader is able to browse a directory structure to pick files according to the pattern, but not "move" folders themself. And you can use File Writer connector to create a directory structure but you have to tell him how.

There are several ways to do it, but all programmatically. For example you can determine dynamically the outgoing destination using $('originalFilename') Velocity variable, save it in a channelMap variable (say 'subDirectory') and apply it in your destination : /home/me/inner/$subDirectory.

FilenameUtils class from Apache's commons library (included in Mirth) could help you for this.

Yes Tom, you get it right. I want to copy or move folders also.
I checked 'yes' to Include Sub-directories but that also not digging into folder structure. Mirth is copying only files, that are present in source folder.
Not in the sub-folders.
