In my Google Drive, I have hundreds of such files which appear in two locations: My Drive and DesiredFolder. For example, cover.jpg below appears in My Drive and Pride and Prejudice (505).

enter image description here

I would like to find all files that are in My Drive and relegate them to DesiredFolder only.

What is an efficient way to do this?

I see when you select a file and Click on Move To then it shows where the current file reside already in pop-up. From there you can decide what to do with that file. Click on a new folder in the list, to Move To or to Existing folder to remove from the folder. At footer you should see create folder link.
