Undo Auto organise action?

Post by Lankylad » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:28 pm

I have an urgent question although I suspect with all the other frustrations I have found getting used to using Mediamonkey that it is already too late.
Some time ago I setup Autoorganise to keep my music files in a particular order. I keep my audiobooks and my music in totally separate folders and use different filing systems to keep them organised. I have been reluctant to use media monkey for my audiobooks as well as my music until I get used to it and finding ways around the problems that crop up. However, knowing that I was about to rip some of my old audiobook cds and add them to my audiobooks folder I added my audiobooks folder and marked it as a folder to be monitored, thinking that would pick up the new books as I added them. Last night I went to bed with it checking through my audiobooks for the first time so I thought nothing of the delay in time and left it alone. I was horrified to discover just now that it has moved 90% of my audiobooks into my music folder!!!
I now have a completely full hard drive and all my stuff (about 550gig in total) mixed up to hell!

My question, I cannot find an undo last action command or similar equivalent, where is it, please?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I am using Windows 10-64bit,
I am using Media Monkey

Unfortunately there is no UNDO for that as you are physically change paths to files.

Only thing you can do is to re Auto-Organize them to right folders.

You can change the Auto-Organize rules to do the organizing properly. Then either edit the files or use Tools > Auto-Organize Files with the same rule to move the Audiobook files to where they belong.

A belated thank you to you both. My post didn't get approved for 2 days so I assumed that it had got lost and didn't come back after a day to keep seeing if it was there. Thanks for trying to assist me.
