Thanks for your help.
In the directory "Compilations" only the files should be moved with the tag "COMPILATION" = 1 and / or "ARTIST" = "various artists".
The iTunes renaming scheme is like that:

[Artist]/[Album]/[CD-No.-][Track No] - [Title].[Ext]
Compilations/[Album]/[CD-No.-][Track No] - [Artist] - [Title].[Ext]

But I don't know, how to create that in SongKong.

Sorry for the confusion.

My question is: How do I change the rename mask so that the result creates the same or similar directories and filenames as "iTunes" does.
Especially for the "compilations" and (if available) the CD number of a multi-disc album.

I currently use iTunes only for file naming and not as a player because I really like the iTunes directory structure.
What is the correct rename mask to create a directory structure like in "iTunes" directory system.
e.g .:
"Various Artists" to "Compilations"
"3-13 Do not Let Me Be Misunderstood.mp3" means Disk 3, Title 3, etc.

I do not want to, just to achieve this, import everything into iTunes. I'm an Ubuntu user.

It would be great, if somebody could help me.
Thanks for the reply
Can I remove the duplicate files with "Delete Duplicate Songs"? I tried it with "fdupes".
How do I select only the numbered directories?
I just want to keep one (the "best") version of the song.
When I correct my songs with SongKong, duplicate, numbered directories are created.
..Pink Floyd/A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1)/01 02 Learning to Fly.mp3
..Pink Floyd/A Momentary Lapse of Reason (2)/01 02 Learning to Fly.mp3

And duplicate directories with different capitalization.
..Pink Floyd/A Momentary Lapse Of Reason (1)/
..Pink Floyd/A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1)/

I use SongKong 4.10.1 and Ubuntu 16.04.3 as OS

How can I stop this?

Thank you, Thomas
