Additional files are moved to "CD 1" folder


I have a lot of CD’s with multiple disks, I let Musicbrainz sort the tracks in sub folders for the CD’s (CD 1, CD 2, CD 3…).

The option “move additional files” is on, I want musicbrainz to move all the png, jpg and log files, and also folders like “Artwork” and “Scans” to the new folder.
But when there are more than 2 discs, the files are moved to the wrong folder.
They are moved to the “CD 1” folder, but I want them in the main folder of the album.

I have the folder structure like this:

/%album% ($if(%date%,$left(%date%,4),0000))

/$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%album% [CD %discnumber%]/)

/$replace(%discnumber%$if($ne(%albumartist%,),$num(%tracknumber%,2) ,)$if(%_multiartist%,%artist% - ,)%title%, , )

Now all the covers and log files are put into the second line (Name of album [CD 1]), but they have to go in the first one (name of album (year)).

How can I let Musicbrainz move all the additional files in the main folder of the album?
Thank you in advance.

I think that’s currently not possible. “Move additional files” just moves the specified files to the same location as the file being saved. You cannot specify a separate location for additional files. So if you save the files from one source folder into multiple separate target folders the first file you save will take the additional files with it.

Thank you for your answer.
I will move the files manually.

I’d been considering reorganising my file structure similar… so glad you asked the question :slight_smile:
