An app called The GodFather use this feature. I can update tags from file name e folder names using any structure... Example:

Artist\Year - Album name\Track number - Track Title.flac
Björk\1993 - Debut\01 - Human Behavior.flac

Can I use a sintaxe (or preset) that recognize the folder and file structure in my Hard Drive and copy this informations directly to the TAG fields?

I'm sorry about my poor English.

MusicBee already does this:

Tools > Tagging Tools > Auto-Tag by Track > Infer and Update Tags from Filename

It could be made easier to find.

How do you suggest improving it's 'locate-ability?'

Short answer? I think four levels is too deep for menu items like this.
At the very least, the tagging functions should have their own top-level menu.

I agree, context menu maybe even. Although you can't put everything there :/

There already is. Select some tracks, right-click and then Auto-Tag by Track > Infer and Update Tags from Filename.

A little bit faster? :)

You can also assign it a keyboard shortcut or create a toolbar button.

Sweet, problem solved then. I tag my library manually so I don't use that often if ever and as a result I'm not too familiar with it all
