Files renamed folders not.

description

Maybe I'm not using the right search words to describe my issue. Otherwise I'd have fixed it and moved on with life. Some how some way a setting got changed (I personally blame my cat overlord for trying to use google to watch videos of other cat overlords. Instead of letting me search for him.)
Every one of my movies is named to (). but the folder name is intact.
The question is HOW can I batch rename every movie to match the folder it is in?

ex of current
\Movies\2012 (2009)
\Movies\2012().avi

Want to make
\Movies\2012 (2009)
\Movies\2012\2012 (2009).avi

While I'm at thinking about it.. Why does MC seemingly randomly move THE, AN, A to the end? (Only thought about this cause I'm current in a folder with 2 of the the 3 movies having THE at the end and the middle movie has it a the front..

O.k. I fixed the Rename to blank issue.. Still have the second issue.. You know a god idea might be on rename a ARE YOU SURE.. Rename Popup. When ever the name deviates too far off course. or year is blank or name if blank ..

Well we could add confirmations, but if all options are set correctly, and correct data is scraped, everything should go according to plans.

But, you can always count on something (cat overlord, act of god...I'll stop there) to throw a spanner in the works.

As the the ignore article, check your Preferences on General & Common -> Common settings tab, middle of the tab in the "Ignore Article Option" group box.
And also on Movie Preferences -> General tag, right under the Rename Movie Settings. There are options to movie the ignore article to the end of the filename/Foldername.

O.k I thought it was fixed.. but it didn't fix. Still have the main issue.. But the good news is it only effects 1550 titles.

OR..
\Movies\2012 (2009)(1850).avi

\Movies\2012 (2009)

In Media Companion, please check the general filter, UnScraped

From the data you provided, (1850) this is indicating either MC can't load the nfo correctly (not one that was created by MC), or there was an issue scraping the movie.
Either of these two instances puts the year at a default value of "1850"

Also, just check you have the file renaming as just %T (%Y)
And a suggestion is to disable renaming on scrape. This is just to ensure you first scrape correctly without blindly renaming the file/folder to an unknown title.

Lastly, if your using XBMC TMDb scraper settings in Media Companion, please note a change in the TMDb api is causing failure to scrape or Rescrape a movie from TMDb. There is a fix, see issue
