Button automatically creates folders based on file names and then move those files into the folders (see pic).

It would seem so. Also it'd be great if the button stripped the stupid dots and the asinine "protocol" in wording certain groups used for their releases.

i'll admit Its similar, but this button creates folders for all the files in a folder and then moves all the files into its own folder all with one click. if you wanted the same result with the other button you would have to do all the files one by one (pain when u have 100+ files).

hope that makes sense..

Just a quick question. I opened the .DCF file with "Directory Opus Helper Application" from the browser. It just opened a command prompt, did a couple of things and then closed.

I'm curious to exactly what it did??!

(i installed it another way afterwards)

Launching a .dcf file is the same as running the button inside it.

Hm, as I launched it, well from the browser, it did a couple of this "file to folder" stuff, it was short, but definitely not nearly instant. I just wonder what files it did process on my system..normally it should not have done anything, because I just launched it without anything to process (as you said). OK maybe just forget about it.

seems like it do not work in network locations.

I got a Synology NAS, and when I try to move some files from ex: \\SYNOLOGY_1815\Movies\new
it do not work.

I can manually edit and create and delete files/foldrs on the network, so it should not be due to restrictions

But when I map the network to a drive letter it seem to work.

this should also work (only for files with extension)

Code: Select all

rename pattern "(.*)(\..{2,4})" TO "\1\\\1\2" regexp
