hardlinking without renaming files

Post by filebotter »

Is this possible with filebot? If so, how do I do this with your program? I tried to select ALL, but it does not allow me to select files to have them hardlinked, it looks like it wants to use TV/Movie database to match file name to have it renamed so that it can be hardlinked.

1.
You can use Plain File Mode if you want to process files locally without matching them against online databases.


2.
Remember that "processing files without renaming files" is the same as "processing files with renaming files to the same name that they currently have" as far as your computer is concerned. As such, any format that ends with {fn} will get the job done.

e.g.

Code: Select all

{fn}

Code: Select all

/path/to/Movies/{ny}/{fn}

Code: Select all

/path/to/TV Shows/{n}/Season {s}/{fn}
:idea: Please read FAQ #1 and learn how format expressions work.
