I would like to rename my files in the following format:

Artist/Album/Artist-Title

How do I do it?

Edit the existing selected mask )or create a new mask) in the File Naming tab and set the mask to:

Code:
 ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,'/')
 + ifnotempty(album,'/')
 + ifnotempty(artist,' - ')
 + title
 


Note, instead of just using artist, I think you want album artist (if it exists) otherwise albums with tracks by different artists will be spilt up. That is the purpose of the

Code:
 ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,'/')
 


And you probably only want to output a '/' or '-' if you actually have a value. That is the purpose of using ifnotempty function.

Thank you, I really appreciate the help. I think I get it now. I made one little change and used the following and it worked great.
Code:
ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,'/')
  + ifnotempty(album,'/')
  + ifnotempty2(artist,albumartist,'-')
  + title
