    Unhappy computer problem

    right hope someone can help me out on this one.

    A few months ago i downloaded imesh, before i had all my music in one folder. Imesh sorted out half my music into artist and album folders. Problem is i cant find any tracks when I want to do a cd. I want to take all the music out of the individual folder n put it back in one. got rid of about 20-30 folders then couldnt bare it anymore. still have 495 folders left. Is there anyway of doing it quicker than opening each individual folder and dragging the file into a different folder?

    I hope there is

    do a search (f3) on the root folder and search for *.mp3 (or whatever extension you have). Select all the files in the results box, cut and paste into your desired location.

    Might be worth re-thinking how you organise your music. Could always do the same as above but copy and 'Paste Shortcut'. That way it's still all in album order, but you can access them all from a single 'folder' too.
