Backup structure in Lightroom - I think being able to backup files in the import dialog is a great feature, but I would like to be able to save the backup files with the same file structure as in the main import. Now I can choose a general back up location, but then the back up files are saved in catalogs named "Imported date....". Now I have to go to the backup location and change folder names and move files to get the same result as my main import. This would be of great help since I want the same files structure on my backups as my main files.

In lieu of and for the mean time, consider 3rd party backup solution and/or TreeSyncPublisher in conjunction with Original format.

Optional: delete Lr's 2nd copy after making 3rd/4th copies in preferred structure.
