The import feature of this plugin as it stands, will only import at the file level, not at folder level, this is very restrictive and does not cater for all users requirements.

A user should be able to create a New category then via the import facility, browse their server folder structure and select the folders they wish to import. The import facility would then replicate the folder files and create the sub-folders under the new category.

I have just bought this plugin and want to populate all my existing data. With the very limited file only import this will take me an inordinate amount of time to manually recreate the folder structure, then import at the file level. I have over 10,000+ files to import from a complex hierarchical folder structure. This is a real pain and a show stopper for me and as a result I cannot use the plugin I paid for.

This is something we have planned for a future major release: version 5.0 (we are currently in version 4.7).

Though it’s hard to give a precise date on new features release for various reasons.
It mainly depends on the development roadmap we've defined for the developer and
problems we may encounter during this period :)

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
