Those options are if you have files and folders mixed together right? That didn't occur to me because I don't have any mixed together. Would checking subdirectories sort my album folders?
I installed this program so that I could use it with my usb flash drive along with my Pioneer head unit. The pioneer reads the usb in the order the songs were written instead of in alphabetical order. The songs are sorted in folders that have the artist name. Within these folders I have the album and within those are the songs. In drivesort it give me the option of using long or short file names. I chose long. It also give me the option of sorting with subdirectories. Another option is to sort directories "before the files", "after the files", or "mixed with files".
This is what the website says:
Choice of folder layout :
* Before the files: Groups the folders together at the top of the name table, and sorts the files separately.
* After the files: Groups the folders after the files, and sorts the files separately. [Default]
* Mixed with the files: No difference between files and folders, they are all sorted together.
I'm not sure which option to choose and if the subdirectories option should be checked. It is currently set on before the files and subdirectories is not checked. This seems to work. However, it would be nice to sort the albums as well which the program did not sort. It only did the artist folders.
Does anyone know what these options mean and if I need them?
