The above may sound like a lot, but really it is not a lot of work for the flexibility you require. I would rather use a conversion program you trust and feed it the data in the way it needs then find some other app that might be able to pick and choose (albeit I've never seen one).

Good luck!
You're reading more into what I want than what I'm asking :)

I had the program and it worked very well, but haven't needed to use it for a while and
it's been lost in the midst of HD and computrer and OS changes.

It was a simple operation;
Open program.
Using Windows Explorer go to the top of the directory tree.
Search for FLAC.
Drag the resultant files (excluding directories of course), into the program window.
Make sure that my MP3 options are set to how I want them.
Ensure that the target directory is set to 'Source'.
Decide whether to keep original FLAC files or not after conversion.
Start conversion.

In this particular instance the source tree had 478 FLAC (plus another thousand or so WMA
files) scattered amongst 143,000 files in the tree - all downloaded from usenet a few years
back.

Hi BJ,
I'm a Dj and have been for a number of years,
the program I used for a lot of conversions is dbPoweramp batch converter,
as it looks like explorer and you can do multiple files and folders, drag and drop,
and will delete source files after conversion without having to do powershell or
any other scripts, works really well and is quite quick at the conversion process too.

Yeah - I don't know of any program that is going to recurse into multiple directories and filter out only specific files.
<<Very big SNIP>>

EZ-CD to "Load Filelist".
<<More Snip>>

Thank you for the assist.
I
I had looked at EZ-CD but the interface has changed since I last used it, and I
didn't recognise it
.

EZ-CD was the program that I used in the past and it does exactly what i want
without having to use PowerShell, (for which I have never been able to find a
guide to the commands, unlike DOS which I've usd since God was a boy :)
)

As I noted in my previous post, I open EZ-CD.

Then I open Windows Explorer at the folder where I want all FLAC files to be

converted and do my search, Explorer always includes sub-folders.

Then drag the results into EZ-CD.

In Options I select
[Delete source file after successful conversion]

De-select Output folder.

As a personal preference I then select in DSP:
Loudness normalisation -6.

Prevent clipping.
Delete digital silence from the beginning.
Delete digital silence from the end.


Then I click on convert and a little later, depepnding on the number of files,
the program lets me know that it's finished.

Glad you got it worked out. I didn't know that EZ-CD would be smart enough to retain the pathing from a windows search result, but glad it was.
My initial reply didn't read into what you wanted any more than exactly what you stated - that's what my commands offered.

For what it is worth, I have been much more comfortable with batch scripting in the past, but Powershell is over 15 years old at this point and entrenched in every version of Windows that likely was installed in the last 10 years. It is well documented, so not sure why you would have any trouble finding out about the commands. It is infinitely more powerful that what you can do with batch files and almost any other scripting language.

Your method works fine, I might just recommend that my method in that you can choose *not* to delete your files after conversion and then use the list generated by my command to delete them once you have verified the conversions meet your specifications.

EDIT: One other thing: The Windows search is slow and sometimes misses files if the indexing service isn't working right. This might be another reason to rely on an external command like PS to find the file listings.

Yep, entrenched and intrusive - I became heartily pissed off with Windows trying to
thrust the program down my throat every time that I opened a Dos Box. I did try (at
that time) to find a list of commands online, but was unable to so do.

Worse, openng the program gave me no guidance at all on how to use the program.

I'm lazy
, running Win8.1 and I have just opened PowerShell - here's a screen grab


POWERSHELL.jpg
As you can see there's an almost illegible screen. Maximising leaves the window at
the
same width just maximizes it top to bottom. No help available from F1 or from
the single drop-down menu
and as I said previously no easily-found on-line list of
commands and how to use them
.

Looking at the scripts that you very helpfully provided reminds of my mid-80s
experiences of CP/M and a few years after that my (very) brief peek at Unix
.


I habitually use a Dos Box for small actions which would mean going all around the
houses in Windows and haven't written or needed to write a batch script this century
,
probably not since the early 90s


It is well documented, so not sure why you would have any trouble finding out about the commands. It is infinitely more powerful that what you can do with batch files and almost any other scripting language.

This is the thing, I don't want to write and run scripts for small tasks with all of the checking
testing and debugging that that would entail (and not use from year to year after writing it)
when there is almost certainly a program out there that will do the job for me; I simply don't
have the time for it - which is why I posted here for info about a program that did what I want

Your method works fine, I might just recommend that my method in that you can choose *not* to delete your files after conversion
That's very easy to get around, just de-select Options >> Delete source file after successful conversion.
and then use the list generated by my command to delete them once you have verified the conversions meet your specifications.

EDIT: One other thing: The Windows search is slow and sometimes misses files if the indexing service isn't working right. This might be another reason to rely on an external command like PS to find the file listings.

That's easy to circumnavigate, EZ-CD now has a Search facility of it's own which is accessible from
Add Files and doesn't use the Windows Search facility, I don't remember seeing it before, so it's
a welcome addition.
