    I need iPad advice.

    When I take a photo with my iPad it goes straight into a general folder in Photos. I’ve split these into various ‘topic’ folders by copying so that I can delete one but the other doesn’t disappear. I have a few short video clips of my late father that I want to copy into a ‘family’ folder along with photos. I can then delete the originals safely. My issue is that whilst it’s simple to copy a photo the same option doesn’t appear to be available for video files?

    All I want to do therefore is to copy a video file from a ‘general’ to a ‘family’ folder and then delete the ones in the ‘general’ but keep the ones in the ‘family’ folder. How do I copy and move a video file?

    I hope I’ve been clear. I’ll be grateful for advice.
    Regards

    Herlock

    Herlock, I'm not an Apple person, but have you tried copying the video to another pc/tablet, and then dragging it from there to your Ipad?

    This is probably of no help whatsoever, but good luck anyway!

      Hi Herlock.
      just select the video you want to move by activating the “tick” as shown in the first pic.
      Then select the blue square on the bottom left corner shown in the same pic.
      further options will appear, as shown in the other picture.
      then you can choose the folder of your choice.
      but do be careful not to accidentally delete or I will feel terrible

        Hi Yabs,

        But if I just click on ‘add to album’ then delete the original won’t the one in the second album disappear to?

        Alternatively, if I click ‘duplicate’ another video appears next to the original. If I then move one of them to another folder can’t I then delete one without the other vanishing?

        Im probably being over-cautious here?
        Regards

        Herlock

          Thanks Barn, that might be an option .

            Herlock, I am not an Apple person either, however, as an experiment, you might try making a video of anything unimportant and copying it to another folder and then deleting the original to see what happens. Just an idea. Good luck.
            Why a four-year-old child could understand this report! Run out and find me a four-year-old child, I can't make head or tail of it.

                Which version of iOS are you using? Go to Settings>General>About, and it should tell you. If it's 9.3 or later (it probably is), you should be okay. Open the PHOTOS app, find your video, then select the SHARE icon at the bottom left. It's a square with an arrow poking out of it. You should find DUPLICATE in the SHARE menu. It's two file folders with a plus sign. You may have to hunt for it, depending on how you're set up. Swipe through the choices until you see it. DUPLICATE will make a true second copy of the video, separate from the first one.

                If it's before 9.3, then it's hard to tell, because Apple used all kind of dodgy tricks with file pointers and the like. Probably go to the Apple store and get some help in that case, or mail/send a copy to a separate device, rename it, and send it back. Best wishes.

                  Thanks Ginger.
