I have a drive filled with Itunes lossless.

It is in a typical directory structure of Singer/Cdtitle/songs

I am looking for a simple (as in virtually idiot-proof) software solution to, on a different directory on the same drive, called whatever (e.g. Itunes-02), recreate the original directory structure of the original directory and then song by song, transform each song from the Itunes lossless into a high quality vbr of around 160 or 192.

I appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you.

I googled real quick and found this: http://www.boilsoft.com/audioconverter/index.html. I've never used it, so I make no guarantees.

But there's an easier way, assuming you have the drive space and time.

Step 1: COPY the entire directory structure to another directory.
Step 2: Run any sort of converter that outputs to the source directory.
Step 3: Type in the command to delete all the originals within the copied directory
CODE
del /S *.alac
or (in linux and maybe OSX)
rm -rf *.alac


It's horribly space inefficient, but it'll get the job done.

Thank you. But I have thousands of nested directories. That's the problem.

How is that a problem? If you copy the "master" directory that contains all the nested directories, the nested directories will also be copied. del or rm will also go into every directory, with the proper options (which I believe are the /S and -rf previously mentioned - but I'm not 100% sure, so check the help before you run those commands).
