Can you give me exact mask you use as if I got you correctly you want to archive this:
Mask: d:\Music\Backup Drive <Folder:0>\<Album Artist>\<Artist> - <Title>
Example Track: F:\Music\The best of 90's\Rednex\Rednex - Wish You Were Here.mp3
Organize result: F:\Music\The best of 90's\Rednex\Rednex - Wish You Were Here.mp3 -> d:\Music\Backup Drive F\The best of 90's\Rednex\Rednex - Wish You Were Here.mp3
Am I right?
Thanks for the reply...
My full mask (that won't stick/save properly):
Code: Select all
<Folder:-0>\MM\$if(,<Path:2>,<Type:5>\<Album Artist:1>\<Album Artist:40>\$if(1,[<Year>] )$Left(<Album>,50)\$if(<Disc#>,<Disc#:2>-,)$if(<Track#>,<Track#:3> )$Left(<Title>,60))
But I'll shorten it to make sure I can reproduce the problem:
That mask gives me the result I want, ie this path/filename:
Code: Select all
...gets organized to this:
But when I select my next track or tracks to auto-organize, the mask has been changed to:
...and if I try to use that, I don't get what I want (and I wouldn't expect to). But then if instead of <Folder:-0> I drop the minus sign and use <Folder:0>, I inexplicably get a long file path/name that repeats the source path 3 times so that the new path has like 12 nested directories, and is typically flagged by being "overly long"
So it seems like two things are going wrong, but only one I really would like a fix or workaround for. The fact that <Folder:0> doesn't seem to do the right thing is weird, but I can get the behavior I want using <Folder:-0> or <Folder-> ... But then I can't properly save that mask for the next album/collection. It's not the end of the world - all I have to do is delete the "1" before I hit OK - but if I ever forget to do that, I'll end up with all selected files in the wrong place.
TL;DR - the mask element <Folder:0>
isn't working right. <Folder:-0>
does work right but won't save properly.
