I have music files that already have artist name and title in the file name. However the files are currently not well organised in folders.

I don't require audio-fingerprinting.

Can PFrank be used just to reorganise (i.e. move) the files based on the contents of the file name (e.g. "Artist - Title.mp3" or "Artist - Album - Title.mp3")?


I would like them organised in folders as follows

    (Alphabetically by sArtist first initial single letter, e.g. C )
      Artist name
        Album/EP Title
          track.mp3
          track.mp3

Yes this can be done.
Open the built-in manual (Alt-F1) and under the 'contents' tab, select 'advanced renaming'. Then click on the 'Creating Folder Paths from Names' hyperlink.
That section explains how to build path hierarchies from file names.

Peter.
