File System Organization - HELP

Organization TV Shows File System Genre Sorting Not Urgent

Best Answer ebr , 04 July 2018 - 09:46 AM

If you really don't want to affect the presentation in Emby then I suggest adding each new "organizational" folder to the respective library as a location.

 

e.g. If you have:

 

TV Shows/Comedy

                 /Drama

 

Then, when you create the library, add "TV Shows/Comedy" and "TV Shows/Drama" both as locations for your TV library instead of just "TV Shows".

This is not, by any means, an urgent issue. I am just looking to clean up my TV file system & am curious as to what the best method is to do this. By "clean up", I mean sort the shows via category or genre, while keeping them separate on my actual Emby server. My level of intelligence in this sort of thing isn't 100%, but I do have some knowledge in how to make all this stuff flow together & work. Any help would be appreciated.

Background on my server set-up: Using old desktop & two external 4TB drives. I'm looking to optimize the loading time in my file system with this project.

That might work. Let me play around with that idea at some point today (I have a bunch of content to transfer to my server from a seperate PC) and I'll let you know. Thanks.
