Renaming files, creating folders and complete directory structures from tags can be done by using Convert → Tag - Filename with a format string. The format string is used to describe the structure of the desired filename.
Besides using normal placeholders (such as
%title%, …) and arbitrary text (e.g.,
Music) it also allows for separating folders with the backslash
Here is an example that renames the file based on the tags using the
Tracknumber. Title format:
Please note that the
$num scripting function is used to ensure double-digit track numbers as in
See First Steps → Renaming Files based on Tags for an example use case of this converter.
If you’re using a backslash character
\ in a format string at Convert → Tag - Filename, Mp3tag creates a folder from the part of the format string in front of a backslash. This way, you can create folder structures based on tag information.
Here is an example that creates new directories under
D:\Music\%artist% - %year% - %album%\$num(%track%,2). %title%
The same is also possible using relative path names (instead of an absolute path in the example above) which creates the new directory relative to the current working directory:
%artist% - %year% - %album%\$num(%track%,2). %title%
