How to organize and manage music with MusicZen – free music management software
First thing that you need to do is set the source and destination folders of where your music is located, and where the organized collection is going to be saved. After that it might be a good idea that you switch over to the Preferences tab and there select just how you want your music organized.
Click on the Change button in order to adjust the way that the folder structure is going to be saved. Change button will change both the top and bottom structure of folders and file name. Flip through them until you find something you like. In the top right corner, you can also select if the files are going to be moved or copied.
This is a before and after shot of how music and songs are going to look like after you’ve organized them using MusicZen. Information about artist and album name, year of release and so on will be collected from the song’s ID3 information and used when creating the folder structure.
