file2folder GUI is my Visual Basic .Net learning project. I’m not a programmer, but have wanted to learn for years. I was a CS student back in the early 90s, but took to systems and network administration instead, so I never really learned to code aside from batch scripting.
The file2folder batch script I wrote has been made very popular due the huge following of the Media Browser Media Center plugin. Since it requires each movie to exist in its own folder by movie name, the script has been widely used to automatically create and move movie files into that required structure without having to do it manually. However, DOS commands have their limitations as do any console programs. That’s what led me to try my hand at giving file2folder a GUI, as well as some additional, but very useful, features.
I’d eventually like to tie it into this site, but WordPress doesn’t have any issue tracking plugins.
