I can't seem to make folder renaming based on metadata behave the way I want it to.

As an example: I have an album named "Motetten und Kantaten" with the albumartist being "John Eliot Gardiner"

The folder structure I want is a single folder named using albumartist and album:

.../John Eliot Gardiner - Motetten und Kantatten

The folder structure I am winding up with is

.../John Eliot Gardiner/Motetten und Kantaten

i.e. A folder with the album name nested inside a folder with the albumartist name.

Does Jaikoz enforce the hierarchy? As far as I can can tell my Javascript is correct:

function pad(number, length) {
if (number == '') {
return '';
var str = '' + number;
while (str.length < length) {
str = '0' + str;
return str;

function ifnotempty(value, sep) {
return value.length > 0 ? value + sep : '';

function ifnotempty2(value1, value2, sep) {
return value1.length > 0 ? value1 + sep : value2.length > 0 ? value2 + sep : '';

ifnotempty2(albumartist, artist, folderseparator) + ifnotempty(album, folderseparator)

Thanks in advance...


Thanks for the quick response. I did not realize Jaikoz could do this ... I have Jaikoz and will take a look.

I tnink you are wise to up the priority ... Plex is an imcreasingly attractive option.

Sorry if this is discussed elsewhere; I searched the forums but did not find anything applicable.

I have a large database (125k+ tracks) that I am trying to move into Plex. SongKong's rename function is perfect for that task. A significant number of my albums do not match MusicBrainz and Discogs -- mostly older jazz reissues -- but I have curated the metadata carefully.

As I understand it the rename function is only available if SongKong has found metadata for the album being processed.

Is there a way to cause SongKong to rename files based on existing metadata, either directly or when a match is not found?

Thanks in advance,
