Organize new albums across multiple hard drives
Authored by: loren_ryter on Aug 10, '05 03:28:51AM

Well it's not the most simple of scripts, hence the long description.

But for less than 400 words, first see the title of the post.

It's simply a way to process a bunch of new albums and organize them to the correct artist folder, no matter what drive that artist folder is on, or whether artists are kept in subfolders according to your own scheme.

As you know, the iTunes option to keep music folder organized assumes: 1) you have one music folder on one drive, and 2) you like said folder to be organized by artist only, irrespective of genres, or alphabetical sub-folders, etc.

---- additional info pushing over 400 words; lazy read no further ---

In my set up, I have music folders on 3 firewire drives, and each of those folders has a couple of dozen genre folders, and within them, the artist folders.

It does assume however that at some point in your folder hierarchy you want album folders within artist folders, unless its a compilation and tagged as such, in which case it moves the album folder to a "Compilation" folder in the default target folder for you to manually organize.

It also cuts a second step in adding these organized albums to iTunes automatically after moving them around.
