batch process destination

    Running a batch process to make thumbnails in Photoshop CS 8.0. I made
    an action: open, resize, sharpen, append "TN," save. First time, a month
    or so ago, it ran just fine, saving to a folder called "thumbs."

    This time, it happily accepted a new source folder in the Batch dialog,
    but totally ignored the destination folder I set, as well as the naming
    instructions. It insisted on saving to the old "thumbs" folder specified
    in the action. I tried moving the folder to another location, and then
    to the trash, and the destination in the original action automatically
    changed to wherever I put it, including the trash. When I dumped it and
    emptied the trash, running the batch resulted in a series of "Could not
    complete the action because the folder could not be found" messages.
    When I did let it save to the "thumbs" folder it ignored the naming
    rules. The behavior was the same whether or not I checked "Override
    action Save As commands."

    Is this a bug or did I do something wrong in setting it up?

    if you recorded the save as part of the action it will choose whatever you
    picked in that or look for it
    remove the save part from the action?
    use the naming and create save folder in the batch interface?
