Root Folder


Hi, i'm after help on how to point to a root directory (directory above current one) in the actions dialogue, to point to the current folder you just use the %_directory% format string, but if i was to point to the directory above it, what prefix would I use in front of the string? I've tried


and multiple other combinations, however none seemed to work.

What i'm aiming to do is use the command to set the Artist tag from the Actions dialogue

Format Value "ARTIST": %_..\directory% (Doesn't work)

I've set the action

Format Value "ALBUM": %_directory%

to set the album, however can't make it set the artist (Artist/Album/Tracks) however can't set the artist.

Any help would be muchly appreciated.


Try %_parent_directory%



Works! Thanks for your help.
