Media Folders / 2 Drives

Postby ontherun » Mon Nov 18, 2013 6:36 am

I have two drives with music drives D:\Music.A-I and E:Music.J-Z

I need to have both in the same folder setup

Name = Music
Folder = D:\Music.A-I E:Music.J-Z

No matter how I address (D:\Music.A-I E:Music.J-Z) (D:\Music.A-I; E:Music.J-Z) (D:\Music.A-I / E:Music.J-Z)
I get Folder not found error. So How can I put them on the same Folder?

When you define music - path for drive 1 and on the second line music - path for drive 2, it should appear as 1 folder...

Name Folder
Music A-I D:\Music.A-I
Music J-Z E:\Music.J-Z

The 1st drive D:\Music.A-I is correct Alphabetically A-Z
The 2nd drive E:\Music.J-Z is a 2nd folder incorrect Alphabetically A-Z

So how do I fix this?

is there away to put the path to two Drives D & E in same folder?

Perhaps you could try:
Name Folder
A D:\Music.A-I\A
B D:\Music.A-I\B
C D:\Music.A-I\C
J E:\Music.J-Z\J
Z E:\Music.J-Z\Z
I set up my Subsonic in a similar way and all folders appear in the correct Alphabetical order.

one method might be a chore but worth it in the end and require some free space or a backup to do correctly...

either
1 format both drives as one extended partition if possible. as this makes it all on one "drive" and all done.
or
2 create the second hard drives drive letter as "none/empty folder in another drive" setting.
but this still leaves them in 2 folders witch I believe is the original issue in the first place.
I myself just spent a few bucks for a used drive for the extra space...
good luck to anyone else trying this
