I'm trying to figure out how to convert file names like ...


D:\Music\My Main Music Collection\Alice in Chains - Nothing Safe- Best of the Box - 05 - Iron Gland.mp3

Into separate sub folders where the last folder is " 01 - song title.mp3 "

D:\Music\My Main Music Collection\Alice in Chains\Nothing Safe\Best of the Box\05 - Iron Gland.mp3

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

You want to create 3 extra levels of subfolders. To do that you need to use the path bilder feature.
Paste the following into the custom renaming creator (do not copy the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '(?BE)(.*?)[ ]*\-[ ]*(.*?)[ ]*\-[ ]*(.*?)[ ]*\-[ ]*(.*?)'
Replace: '\1/\2/\3/\4'


The search string will isolate 4 different groups from the filename - each group is separated by a dash character. The replace string will specify a folder hierarchy with the groups.
Press the scan button to get a preview.

Hope that helps.

Peter.
