I have a lot of playlists i use, saved in MBP format. But that comes with a problem, cause whenever i change a file or folder to a different name or something, it won't be able to detect the file in playlists anymore, cause it'll keep looking for the original filename of the file in question in it. That's not a problem whenever i'm tagging however, since usually, I just need to use the FIle Organiser to move files around or use the Send>To option. Editting through the computer node to rename a folder has also been enough so far cause in general i just need to edit one specific folder, so it's not a problem.
But now I feel like and want to edit a LOT of folder names because i've changed my naming conventions for album folder names.
Previously, i've been doing "(YEAR) Album Name - Artist Name" but now I feel like adding catalog numbers, in such fashion: "(YEAR.MONTH.DAY) [CAT] Album Name - Artist Name".
I guess there's a way to autorename through musicbee based on tags, but the thing is that I don't necessarily input such informations in mytags, such as the full release date (month & day), or sometimes i simply do not want to use the classic formula. Ideally I'd just like to do it all manually, rather than having to edit 3000+ worth of albums data to add a custom tag to sort it all or something.
So basically what i'm asking for, if it's possible, is if there's a way to use windows explorer to edit folder names as I want to, without it breaking all of my playlists...? I'm not sure i'm making this clear cause at this point it's kind of my own problem but i'd be glad to know if there's an easy way to do it simply through windows explorer without ruining the filepaths of the tracks in my playlists or something.
