    You mean it is trimming the artist? you can then try:

    [TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][origpath]\[origfilename][][]

    Try:

    [origpath]\[origfilename]

    and set the output folder to:

    \\BROXI\Music\Converted files for apple lossless\

    What result do you get?

    \\BROXI\Music\Adele\Adele - 19\1\01 - Daydreamer.flac

    \\BROXI\Music\Converted files for apple lossless\Music\Adele\Adele - 19\1\01 - Daydreamer.m4a

    Seems to add this extra folder in, instead of just converting the folders across
