Organize files / How to move videos to separate folders
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:04:55 pm »
Several movies are stored in one folder. Now I would like to create a separate folder for each movie with the movie name as folder name and then move the movie into that folder. Can that be accomplished by the function "Organize files".
If yes, how is it done?

When I use the function "Organize files" on files that have already a seperate folder, PVD moves the complete folder together with all files stored in that folder (movie, .nfo, pictures). That's pretty cool.

No, but it should actually work. I will provide such a possibility in the next update.

Thanks nostra, that would be cool.

For the meantime I have found a workaround:

1.) A little program called file2foldergui which is freeware
2.) A mighty renamig tool called Peter's Flexible Renaming Kit (PFrank) which is also freeware. The regex search pattern is
Code: [Select]
(?Bx)(.*)(\..*)$ and the replace pattern
Code: [Select]
\1/\1\2
