Problems importing presets into folders in lightroom 9.2 (Windows 10)

I have a lot of presets organized in folders, but when i import them, thay all just go to "User Presets"
I have tried to use the import function in Lightroom on ZIP files for each folder, and i have tried to place the folders manually through the explorer window.
They all still ends up in the User Presets folder (Where you can only move one preset at a time to another folder)

 

How do i get Lightroom to organize my presets in folders like i see them in an explorer window?

 

Thank you in advance

The Preset Groups you see in the Develop Preset panel, since Version 7.2 and .XMP presets, no longer mirror the folder structure on disk.

The Group of a preset is determinbed by an internal name within the .XMP preset file.

Your best result can be obtained by a plugin by John Ellis- http://www.johnrellis.com/lightroom/fixpresets.htm

And research the details of Preset management-

And this video discusses Profiles and Presets- (although the Feb2020 changes to Import Profiles has changed again!)
