Library partly on external drive

My disk is full and all of it is music, so I'm trying to move the stuff I listen to least to an external drive. Now I need to find a nice way to incorporate this scheme into foobar cool.gif

It helps a lot that foobar retains in its index files that are currently offline. This way they can still be searched.

It would be practical, however, to be able to mark files that are currently unavailable using some title formatting. Also, even if the external drive is plugged in, it would be nice to mark which files are residing on a removable medium.

Any thoughts on how to do those two things?

Extracting the drive letter from the path is one solution, but not very dynamic. Another thing is the sorting of my library - the tracks on the external harddrive appear at the bottom when I browse my library using Facets and EsPlaylist, but I can't see that path is used anywhere for sorting... It would be optimal if I were able to split up single albums (with the popular songs on the internal) but still have all the songs shown together as one album.

Thanks for your input! smile.gif
