I recommend using this format expression:

Code: Select all

Z:/Plex/Shared {plex}

If you want a movie collection folder, then something like this will do:

Code: Select all

Z:/Plex/Shared Movies/{collection+'/'}{ny}/{}

:!: Note that having a movie collection folder in your custom naming scheme makes your naming scheme explicitly not be the Plex naming scheme. It might work, or it might not.
