Folder Hierachy vs. Folder settings

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First I apologize if this has been gone over. I did search beforehand and did not find anything.

I am using the Fiio M11 which has internal and two external storage cards.On the external cards I have all my music catagorized from A-M on the first card and O-Z on the 2nd card. Each folder is named with the artists name followed by the album title. Any artists that have multiple albums I create a main folder with just the artists name and all the albums as subfolders inside. Now my question or problem/request is that under Folder Hierachy it shows the name of the main folder without showing the additional subfolders and sorts by name. This is a great feature as it displays the folder names but without showing the subfolders which is EXTREMELY helpful when scrolling thru hundreds and hundreds of albums. 

Now here is my problem! Under the Folder option I cant figure out how to set it up to view the same way. I am not sure if its even possible but is that something that could possibly happen with an update?  I am using 2 512gb cards and doing the folder search really slows things down by scrolling thru all the damn subfolders. I tried sorting by artist name but that made it worse as I have a few various artist albums and now for one album i have to scroll thru 12 different artists . I hope what I am asking makes sense and again, I have exhausted going into all the settings and options that I could find. Thanks very much guys for any info/help!

The point of the Folders list is that it is a flattened view, so folders and any sub folders will naturally appear in one long scrollable list. Empty folder names (i.e. ones which contain  no FILES of their own) will not be shown.

Folders Hierarchy is the only way to see them nested.

Thanks Andre. Thats pretty much what I thought. In a perfect world I would love to be able to view both my cards and the internal storage but without showing subfolders. If I am driving and stopped at a light I can spend the duration just scrolling thru subfolders of the artists...... Hierarchy is great but wont show both cards or internal at once.. just one at a time.. Again, I only complain because sorting time is important when I'm in the car. Thank you for your reply. Much Appreciated!

Folders Hierarchy is a drill-down view, so it obviously can't show the contents of two different root-level directories on the same screen, as you'd need to drill down into one or the other.

I think (and I haven't tried this) the only way to do what to you want would be to go into Settings > Library > Music Folders and untick the top-level/root folders for each location (which will deselect all the contents too) and then manually go into each location tick each of the subfolders that you want to see in your first list (which will automatically select all the lower level subfolders beneath each of those). Then those highest level ticked folders would become your root folders for the main Folders Hierarchy view, so you'd see more folders at that point. However if you ever add a new folder at that upper level, you'd need to manually add it to the Music Folders list.
