What happens with my existing files in my media library?

Real Physical Media never touches your existing files if you do not trigger this. That means, only future uploads will be automatically placed to the correct Real Media Library folder. For example, you upload a file to the folder “My galleries/Animals”, the file will be moved to wp-content/uploads/my-galleries/animals. Please also note, Real Physical Media automatically deactivates the year/month folder system which comes by WordPress default.

If you want to move all your existing files you can do this with one click:

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Navigate to Settings > Media > Tab “Real Physical Media”
  3. Click on “Reinitialize all files”
