Add Drag and Drop Folder Management in CMS Files admin tree view
Self explanatory, but when viewing files in tree view, it would be better if we could drag and drop folder hierarchy like with site tree pages and then asset urls update accordingly.
You run into needing this feature as SilverStripe will force all assets into a root folder called 'Assets' which you cannot view from within CMS and causes issues with Modules (like Static Site importer) generating a second 'Assets' folder within the root "Assets" folder.
So being able to drag folders into root would be useful, but also useful in general to organise and manage folders.
This is planned as part of the new React-based files area.

The files admin in SilverStripe 4 has been completely rebuilt and is a lot more enjoyable to use. It relies much less on a folder hierarchy but I think that the issues that led to this feature request being raised have been addressed.

I think the Files area could be improved alright, I was hoping it would work more like KickAssets in SS3
