Tutorial: Rename Files, Folder paths


For renaming and moving files SongKong splits every filename into three conceptual parts:

  • Base Folder
  • Sub Folder
  • Filename

The Base Folder is the shared part of the folder path that is common to all the music files , such as E:\Music

Sub Folder comprises the rest of the folder path, this is likely to match the some of the songs metadata such as Album Artist/Album

Filename is the last part of the path, the filename within the folder

So on the Basic tab the Base Folder and Sub Folder are displayed and we can modify the split using the left and right arrows.
