Ensure that audio tracks stored in each folder are related, in this case, they belong to the same album "Superman Returns"
Step one

The first step to categorize your music is to use meta data such as id3 which is commonly found in MP3 tags.

Quick File Rename allows insertion of MP3 meta data into your folder names, quickly and easily!

First make sure the music folders contain only the songs related to a particular album or artist.

For example if a folder contains the Superman Returns album, you want only songs relating to Superman Returns stored in this folder. Do this for every folder containing your music files.

The second step is deciding what attributes you want inserted into the folder name. Typically this can be information such as album name, album artist, and album year.

Quick File Rename supports many audio attributes which you can use as part of the folder name.

In our example, we want all our folders to contain the album name, artist, and album year.

Next, we goto the Insert tab and add the following text which contains the tags we want.

<audio.artist> - <audio.album> - <audio.year>

then we add the position based insert Rule.
