Yes it is. That you can't see the issue suggests a lack of empathy for 
anyone with less understanding than you (this is not new, we've all see it 

There _may_ be a good reason someone needs 44.1k instead of 48k, but you 
didn't even ask. You also have a record of derisively second-guessing 
questions and dismissing other people's ideals and solutions.

And you might learn to express ideas in more moderate language.

To the OP-
What tools do you have available? Just using windows BAT files is probably 
not going to cut it, but might be able to do this in Powershell, otherwise 
you'll need something like tcl/php/perl/python/etc.

ffmpeg may be a "swiss army knife" but it does not do -everything-; it's a 
conversion tool, not a file management tool.

Why move files? Re-code from source directory into the destination dir; 
delete from source later if needed. Unless you need to keep the original 
file... none of that was mentioned. (Part of looking for a solution is 
laying out both the problem and the environment.)
