I don't follow. The file type is irrelevant to Auto-Organize. If Auto-Organize moves the files they should be available.scott967 wrote:I've found auto-organize works pretty well. The only issue I had was I have some .m4a files in the library, and subsequently I changed my file monitor scan options to not scan for .m4a files. I can use auto-organize to move them, but afterwards MM will say the file is missing.
This is generally due to files remaining in the folders like hidden Artwork files and such (which Windows or Windows Media Player can add).scott967 wrote: It also won't remove empty folders when that option is selected.

I personally haven't moved a Portable Install around. So you may want to start with copying the Portable install to the new drive and see if it runs as expected. If it does you can move a few files with Auto-Organize Files and see if that also works as expected. If all checks out you can move the remaining files with Auto-Organize Files.
