I'm wondering if there's a way to move or rename directory names along file names in Foobar file renamer.

I'd like to do something like "%album%\$num(%discnumber%,1)%tracknumber% [%artist% - ]%title%".
Would it be possible in some way ?

Have you tried it?

File Name Pattern: Specify how the files will be named, and indicate any subfolders (separated by '\'). Title formatting is allowed in this field, and any subfolder which does not exist will be created under the destination folder.

Ah OK, I see. For this pattern to work, "Move" command as to be used (with a destination directory specified).
It doesn't work with the "Rename" command (for safety maybe, as it could rename the directory when the user would actually move file to a new sub-directory).

Many thanks dv1989! smile.gif
