Adding Rules can be done from either the context menu (recommended) or from within QuickMove.
 
From QuickMove...
 
Both will open the New Rule Wizard...
For All Files...
The first three options are as described in Getting Started but the "Plain Text" and "Regular Expression" (RegEx) are explained further below:
 
Plain Text Matching
This is the easiest of the two to understand since it uses a pattern match most are familiar with as Windows Users and should satisfy most needs.
Example Explanation
Tax* All files starting with "Tax" and of any extension.
Tax*.pdf All pdf files starting with "Tax".
Tax200?.* Tax2000 to 2009 would match.  So, Tax2005 would match but not Tax2015.
Tax?201?.* Tax 2010 to 2019 would match but note that there must be a space (?) between "Tax" and the year. Tax2010 would not match.
Regular Expressions
These offer more complex but very flexible pattern matching options. Examples can best be found by searching the internet for your exact requirements.
 
When Found In...
offers another level of matching where you can have the rule apply ONLY if found in the source folder you currently clicked in or "Any Folder" if the location of the file is unimportant and the rule should always apply.
 
Always...
move to a target folder of your choice (with optional Sub-Folder Rules)
or if the target folder can change then choose "Show me my list of Favourite Target Folders" to be prompted before a move happens with a list of your previously used target folders
or "Run this File" which offers complete flexibility for you to write your own batch file of commands or even run an executable. Note that this option runs outside the control of QuickMove and so cannot offer an Undo action as with the other two options.
 
Overwrite Rule
See more on Overwriting.
 
Permissions
Default – Files moved on the same volume (ie, drive in most cases) will take their existing permissions with and not inherit from the target folder. Files moved to different volumes (ie, to a different drive or network folder) will inherit permissions from the target folder and lose any explicit permissions they may have had.
 
Force Inheritance on Local Volume Moves – Files moved on the same volume (ie, drive in most cases) will lose any inherited permissions from their source as well as explicit permissions they may have had and inherit permissions from the target folder. Files moved to different volumes (ie, to a different drive or network folder) will behave no differently to the default setting.
 
Note: When moving to different drives or network locations, permissions are unaffected by these options and follow the rules of the Operating System.
 
 
Finally, give this rule a name to help you locate it should you need to edit it.
