#' Functions for manipulating uploaded results
#' Functions used for moving and creating the \code{past_results_v2} data set from 
#' uploaded data. The \code{move_files} function is used to moved files from the server
#' to another location, whilst removing any empty data sets. 
#' @note One of the unit tests uploads an empty results file. 
#' Files where the results are \code{NULL} are moved to a sub-directory (called)
#' \code{empty} in the \code{to} directory. If the \code{empty} directory doesn't 
#' exist, it is created.
#' Currently these functions are specific to my set-up.
#' @param from A directory containing the uploaded results.
#' @param to Destination directory
#' @export
