I am currently struggling with some music folders. I once decided to name them following the pattern:
artist - album - year. I realized today that this wasn't a clever move and want now to name my directories following the pattern:
year - artist - album as they will then show up in ascending order when listed.
I started doing the renaming by hand but, with roughly 700 folders, there has to be a simpler way ; I tried using
gprename but I'm not so good at regex and bash scripting…
Is there anyone who could help me spare my poor fingertips ?
Aes Dana - Memory Shell - 2004 Anja Schneider & GummiHz - Back To Back (Remixes Part 2) - 2009
2004 - Aes Dana - Memory Shell 2009 - Anja Schneider & GummiHz - Back To Back (Remixes Part 2)
EDIT: Some artist and album names have special characters like
Kool & The Gang. Though every directory has
- as separator.
