Filebot always copies my movies into subfolder called movies

Post by WaveDave1988 »

Hey there,

I'm using filebot node on my synology and I have the "issue" (it's not an issue, i know..), that no matter what, it always creates a subfolder called "Movies" to which it moves all processed movies. Per example: Outputfolder I inserted in filebot node is "/volume1/Movies/Bluray/Bluray English" but instead filebot creates a new folder inside the outputfolder "/volume1/Movies/Bluray/Bluray English/Movies"
In my case in how I sorted my data, I don't want that.

Could you please let me know if there's a possibility so that filebot will not create a new subfolder depending whether it's a movie, a serie or whatever?
It would be much appreciated :-)

Thanks in advance and have a great weekend!
Dave

The top-level Movies folder is part of the default {plex} format. Just use your own custom format if the default doesn't work well for you.

Code: Select all

{plex.tail}

You can define your custom formats in the custom formats section in the FileBot Node WebUI. You may need to expand some of the collapsible sections.
