    Re: A little help with a folder structure condition?

    Actually, I just managed to make it work!

    This is what I used:

    [album artist]\[album]\[IFVALUE]disc,[Album] Disc [disc]\[][track] - [title]

    Thanks for the help, though, I probably wouldn't have found it I wasn't experimenting with your ideas!

    Sorry, I have just noticed you create Album\Album, Disc (a folder within a folder):
    [album artist]\[album][IF][disc_total],=,1,,\[album]_COMMA_ Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title]

    So I did not check and see the sub-folder. So, as long as Disc is populated, the Naming string above IS working for me.

    Yep, that looks good too.

    ... as has been pointed out though, it DOES rely on how you populate the Disc tag, which in this thread, is unclear (pre-ripping and post-ripping).

    I don't think this is a good idea at all.

    Server/player software often references the Disc tag. Your Disc tags are not consistent and there may be repercussions later, with other software.

    Re: A little help with a folder structure condition?

    One other thing to be aware of is the maximum folder/file path length, which in windows is limited to 260 characters.

    Your nested Album folder concept may give you a problem with long Album names.

    Example:
    The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (30th Anniversary Edition)\The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (30th Anniversary Edition), Disc 2

    is 185 characters long, so there is not much room for error here.

    There is the [MAXLENGTH]maxlength,string[] function, to help with long strings.
