Add folder name to file names

Postby braciata » Tue Nov 08, 2016 2:03 pm

Hello!
I have some songs in different folders. Songs are named only with title. I wondered if it's possible to add the folder name as suffix.

Example:

Song is 'Dirrty'

Folder name is 'Christina Aguilera'

I would like to have
Christina Aguilera - Dirrty.mp3

Thank you

You don't need regular expressions to do this.

In BRU browse to the main directory that the folders are in and select the following options.

Filters (12)
Subfolders

Append Folder Name (9)
Name: Prefix
Sep: - (space-space)
Levels: 1 (or whatever level your folders go to)

Select the files you want to rename, check everything is as you want then rename.
