TCC has to create the folders because it cannot yet know what's in the subdirectories. To do this would require TCC to traverse the entire directory tree first, analyze the results and tag the empty subdirectories, then do the move, and then remove the empty subdirectories.

It seems like a lot more work than just doing the move and removing the empty subdirectories.

i don't understand why COPY has the /F and MOVE doesn't. The difference being that MOVE deletes the files in the source folder/s.
