    Default Strange Folder Question

    So I have two NAS devices. One contains my HD (M:\Movies) movies and one contains my 4k UHD (V:\4K Movies) movies.

    My question is going to sound strange, so here goes.

    I have a folder 'M:\Movies\Star Trek' that contains the 1080p versions of the Star Trek movies. I also have a folder that is 'V:\4K Movies\Star Trek' that contains the 4k versions of some of the movies. I have a custom playlist that just points to the 'M:\Movies' folder for now. Is there some way that I can "combine" the two in the same playlist so that the contents of both of the "same name" folders would appear as if they are one logical folders? So, for instance, 'Movies/Star Trek' would show both the contents of both Star Trek sub-folders combined without having to make a custom sub-playlist? The reason I don't want to create a custom sub-playlist is that I have a bunch of folders like the 'Star Trek' ones that have a mix of 1080p an 4k movies in their corresponding folder and it would require alot of management.

    What I am hoping is that if I combine 'M\Movies' and 'V:\4K Movies' in the custom base playlist that any sub-folders that match will be "shuffled together" so that their respective contents look like they are in 'Movies/Star Trek'.

    If you need more information, I can provide more info.

    That part I get, to get two folders (M\Movies and V:\ 4K Movies) into the same 'Movies/' playlist. What I am wondering is if there are two sub-folders in that merged folder, will they also be merged together? So that, for instance, "M:\Movies\Star Trek" and "V:\4K Movies\Star Trek" get "automagically" merged so that /Movies/Star Trek contains the files from both folders.

    I figured I would try this to see if it made it clearer...

    M:\Movies---------+
    ...........................|----------Movies/
    V:\4K Movies ------+

    Will the sub-folders in the 'M:\Movies' and 'V:\4K Movies' folders be "merged" in the Movies/ play list so that, as an example, 'M:\Movies\Star Trek' and 'V:\4K Movies\Star Trek' appear in 'Movies/Star Trek' all together or does it create two 'Movies/Star Trek' folders in the playlist.

    Mezzmo will combine your sub-folders into one sub-folder - so you will only have one sub-folder and both sets of files will be listed in the one sub-folder. In your above example, you will have one 'Star Trek' folder and all the files from both locations will be listed in it.

    Perfect. Just what I was looking for.

    The reason I ask is that I am running out of space rapidly on one NAS and have another that I am moving my 4k movies to, but don't want to lose the grouping by sub-folders for the sets.....hehehe
