I've been good smile.gif, cleaned out all the shit I know I never will use
Can't even remember how much, must be +100GB smile.gif


Now I am left with 2 empty drives.
1 160GB external and 1 320GB internal.


My FLAC collection I already have on system drive ( have it on D: not on C: partition )
Want to move it to a less active drive.

My collection is about 150GB FLAC files
How can I easily convert all old FLAC to the new FLAC to another drive with identical folders and subfolders?

I wish FLAC frontend had this function, auto create folders and subfolders.
If you drag 1 folder to FLAC frontend, 1 identical folder with same subfolders is created in the output directory.
This would ease the process considerable

Is there any reason to wait for new FLAC version?
Was mostly thinking if FLAC 1.1.4 has any serious bug reports......

Was thinking it would be great to have all FLAC on the 160GB drive that I never have turned on anyway.
Easy to turn on if I need it ....
I use FLAC on PC, convert to mp3 for my DAP (iAudio U2)



My FLAC collection is set up like this:

Lossless
-----------Artist 1
----------------------Album 1
----------------------Album 2
----------------------Album 3
-----------Artist 2
----------------------Album 1
-----------Artist 3
----------------------Album 1
----------------------Album 2
-----------Artist 4
----------------------Album 1
----------------------Album 2
-----------Artist 5
----------------------Album 1
----------------------Album 2
-----------Artist 6
----------------------Album 1
----------------------Album 2
----------------------Album 3


Lossless is the main folder
Artist is a subfolder to Lossless
Album is a subfolder to Artist
