Hiccup's method should work, or you can just add the trailing \ in the replace text.

Are you looking at the preview of the results? Click the [...] button on the virtual tag and it will show you what the output will look like.

That won't work. A trailing backslash throws an error.

Ah. I thought I remembered backslashes were trouble...

I did this and it's still not working.

Does this work? :

$Split($Replace(<Path>,"K:\EVERYTHING\[FLAC]",),\,2)
No, and now suddenly all of my virtual tags are showing an error that they cannot be parsed when I didn't even change the first 2.



The previews all looked fine to me before this suddenly started giving errors. I'm very confused on what's wrong here..


EDIT: Not even <Path> alone works without throwing an error. Are we maybe using the wrong syntax?



EDIT 2: After a restart it's just magically working again!



However, my A-Z bar still behaves the same, where #-D goes to the top and E-Z goes to the bottom. How do I make the A-Z bar actually work with these tags?

Have you added the virtual tags in the custom sorting menu?

Ah, that's the step we were all missing! Thanks a ton, it's working now. From my previous screenshot I've found that only the last 2 work, so I'm sticking with the second one since it looks the most efficient.

Great, glad you got it working! Yeah, I wouldn't expect my suggestion to work since it doesn't account for the trailing slash.
