Automaticaly create new folders with movies inside

Hi Every body,

I am a new user with gcstar and I have some difficulty.

  I have a important collection of movies. I would like to automatically create folders for sort my movies.
  If possible I would like to sort my movies in folders: first for different kind then inside this folders for different date of release.
  Is it possible to do this with gcstar ? If yes how ? If no, witch software can do that ?

Best regards,

S├ębastien

I'm afraid GCstar can't do that but it can help.

- Use Import/Folder to load all your movies in GCstar and get the dates and maybe type/genre depending on the web site you're using
- Correct the classification in GCstar to suit your needs
- Export to CSV
- Write a small script to parse the CSV and move the files accordingly using your favorite language (you may be able do it with a one-liner in shell for example)
- Reimport the folder in GCStar selecting the option to recursively go down subfolders

When trying, don't forget to backup your collection!

Hope this helps

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
