Hi Rob, welcome to the forum! Let's have a look at the Destination panel of the Import dialog.

Well the issue is not with the import. That was all done OK over several months. No I have been silly I think and deleted one of the sub folders leaving all the photo in one folder 2014.
Is it posible to do something to return them into individual groups within the date taken folder.

Ah, ok, then yes, you can just right-click on the 2014 folder and select New Folder to rebuild your folder structure and then drag photos from the Grid into it. It's easiest if you use the Metadata Filters at the top of the Grid to filter one day at a time. It's a bit of a job if it's the whole of 2014. If there's not tens of thousands of photos, I'd consider just splitting them by month instead of diving into it by day too.
