what I wish for is a function to rename a folder (that contains an Album, Compilation, EP...) by its tag (group column). E.g. if I I have an album in my playlist that's correctly displayed as "Michael Jackson - Thriller" in the group column, but the folder is named as "surgery accident", it shall be possible to rename it by the group column.

Is there any possibility?

Only like this:

Destination folder: C:\
File Name Pattern: $substr(--whatever-custom-formatting-from-%path%--,3,999)

Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

Hi, I'm resurrecting this very old - and interesting - thread to ask if, as of today, your workaround is still necessary, or if "Destination folder" can be scripted to guess the drive where the files are.

In my case, music can be on C: or on N:, and I'd like to move my files
[Drive]:\[original path]\[original filename].mp3

[Same drive]:\$directory_path(%path%)\%album%\$num(%discnumber%,2).%tracknumber%-%totaltracks% %artist% - %title%
