Moving into parent folders

Been a while since ive used ReNamer

But i thought it would help me... so before i purchase it




I have my cd collection ripped on a couple of 8tb hdd`s

On one hardrive is my cdlp and on another is my compilations.


problem is i have 40,000 cd`s and i need help in achieving this.


On my cdlp drive i have folders like

King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 1
King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 2


I would like to move them into a parent folder like this

King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities (2CD)


And on my comp hdd i have pretty much the same like this


Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 1
Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 2


I would love them in a parent folder

Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) - (COMP) - (2CD)



Ive tried a few ideas and the results were not what i wanted, is this possible, and thanks.

Re: Moving into parent folders

If I understood it correctly, your biggest problem is how to sort your albums into parent folders.

Ok, here is a Regular Expression rule which will do just that:

Replace expression "\A(.*?)\s*\bCD\s*\d+\Z" with "$1\\$0" (skip extension)

Here is an example of input and output folder paths:

C:\Temp\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 1     -->>  C:\Temp\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2)\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 1
C:\Temp\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 2     -->>  C:\Temp\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2)\Celebration 2000 - (545066-2) Cd 2
C:\Temp\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 1  -->>  C:\Temp\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 1
C:\Temp\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 2  -->>  C:\Temp\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities\King - 2018 - Remixes & Rarities Cd 2
C:\Temp\Test Folder                            -->>  C:\Temp\Test Folder

All folders which have a suffix "CD 1", "CD 2", "CD 3", and so on, are moved to a common parent folder. Other folders are ignored, e.g. "Test Folder".

This should get you moving on that front.

The next step would be appending a suffix "(2CD)", "(3CD)", and so on, to the parent folders. This will probably require a use of Pascal Script rule, but first, let us know how you get on with the parent folders.
