Use Library Organizer to separate publishers to different drives? 11 months 2 weeks ago #50542

I recently split my comic files between two drives as the one I was using was nearly full. I moved all but my mainline publishers (DC, Marvel, etc.) to this drive using Library Organizer in one action using a special configuration.

I use Library Organizer on a regular basis to rename and move my new downloads to their final folders, but it appears a single configuration can only move to a specific drive (the "base" folder).

What I am wondering is if it is possible to use the rules and such in Library Organizer to rename and move my mainstream publishers to one drive and the rest to the other drive automatically using a single configuration.

Basically like this:

IF <publisher> = ("DC Comics" OR "Marvel")
THEN
{Rename and move to C:/Comics}
ELSE
{Rename and move to D:/Comics}
END IF

Thanks.

Create a smartlist with these conditions and run Library Organizer on all comics in this smartlist ;)
Edit: If you want to do this on a daily routine you can use Rules option in Library Organizer config.

When you go into the Library Organizer configuration settings, create two profiles, one for "DC/Marvel" and one for "not them."

Set the base folder in the DC/Marvel profile to the folder on the first drive.

Set Rules (on the left-hand side) to only move comics that have the Publisher set as "Marvel" or "DC."

Set the base folder in the second profile to the other hard drive.

Set Rules on the second profile to ignore any comics with "Marvel" or "DC."

Run both profiles when using the LIbrary Organizer.

Building on Targg message I suggest you read "The Organizer" manual by 600WPMPO as that shows how powerful and customisable Library Organizer truly is.

I used for a long time do as suggested by publo - since The Organizer I do not have to worry and all my 21 currently active rules run smoothly in one go.

I've looked around the site and can't find the document you mention. Where would I find it?

All the profiles I created in library organizer are gone for some reason. Thankfully I backup everything on my computer. Can anyone tell me where these profiles are kept so I can restore them from a backup?
I am currently reading every Marvel Superhero comic book every printed, in chronological order, and blogging about the milestones, footnotes, and other interesting moments I read at http://www.wraithscomicjourney. I'll be adding DC when I hit 1985, and other companies when they launch.

Keep getting this error when I click the file button on the left side of the plugin.

Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Issue seems to have resolved itself now after I ran it once.

Hi guys, hopefully there's still some of you around to see this. :)

I have two questions about organising my folders that I'm not sure are doable

My base folder is E/Comics and my format is like this

publisher/ alphabet / character/ series/ vol

so it goes
E:\ Comics\ Marvel\ C\ Captain America\ Captain America (v1968)

E:\ Comics\ DC\ B\ Batman\ Batman (v1941)

is it possible to get the series that start with numbers to go in a '#' folder after publisher without making rules for each entry separately? (I know you can if you stick to the format of E\Comics\alphabetical\#, but I want the comics in separate company folders.) so like this

E:\Comics\ DC\ #\ 52 (v2006)

The other thing is would I be able to create a folder for character series, something like this

E:Comics\Marvel\B\ Black Panther\ Black Panther (v1977)
E:Comics\Marvel\B\ Black Panther\ Character Series\ Killmonger (v2018)
E:Comics\Marvel\B\ Black Panther\ Character Series\ Shuri (v2018)

Obviously I'll edit the datamanager rules to reflect this)
Many thanks for any advise.
:)

Hava a look at 600WPO organiser guide - I believe you can find guidance on your questions there. (currently away from my comicrack computer so cannot really check any specifics)
