I am trying to move all my music to a single folder, so that I can then organize everything using tag information.

In other words, I want to resort everything like this: C:\Music\Artist\Album - Year\(track#). (title)

Right now, its all in C:\Music, but some folders are just the name of the album, or just the name of the artist, or whatever.

The way I see it, I would want to create an action to replace directory C:\Music\whatever with C:\Music, then convert tags to filenames. So how do I move everything into C:\Music ?

Thanks for any help you can give me. I know this is probably simple, but I'm having a tough time figuring it out.

I'd use Windows Explorer (or another file manager of your choice) to move the files.

Another way would be the converter Tag - Filename using a format string like C:\Music\%_filename%

Kind regards,
Florian
