I have a huge collection of movies (over 2,000) on my external hard drive, and since my girlfriend doesn't like those old movies, she would like to make distinguish between the old movies and those from the last 5 years.
At this moment, every movie has it's own folder containing a movie file and a
.srt file. Consequently I have a very long list of movies.
What I would like to do is to make two directories in the root, organized:
- by year
- by alphabet
The 'by year' folder would contain folders like "2012", "2011", etc., and the alphabet folder would simply contain all the movie folders in a long list.
Maintaining both these folders is obviously a very hard thing to do, not to mention the extra space it will require to have every movie-folder duplicated.
Is there a way to do what I want without duplicating every movie folder?
