    Default Looking for a program to extract files from folders

    Hey guys I just d/l my google play music library and need to find a program that will extract multiple files from the folders that google has created for each artist. I have over 400 different artists and will not go through 400 different folders to get the files out of them. If you know of a program that can do what Im looking for please let me know by posting here thanks. Hopefully after the file its extracted the program will be able to put the files into another folder.

    Just do a search on the main containing folder for *.mp3 - it will show a list of all the files with that extension which you can copy/paste elsewhere.

    +1 on this approach or write a folder automation (if you are on OS X) so new files get batch moved to the new location without you lifting a finger.

    Or just itunes (which I personally find is the best for organization) .. if I need all the MP3's from separate folders in a single location you can just make a playlist drag all the individual folders into the blank playlist window, and drag the tracks back out into any folder / usb key of your choice.
