How would I go about copying a playlist and mantaining its folder structure?

Let's say I have a "favourites" playlist in Foobar, comprised of songs in "D:\Music\Paramore\Album\(songs)" and "D:\Music\Iron Maiden\Album\(songs)". I want to copy it to my phone, so I make the output folder "D:\Phone music". What's the file name pattern I'd need so that the output is "D:\Phone music\Paramore\Album\[songs in playlist (filenames)]" and "D:\Phone music\Iron Maiden\Album\[songs in playlist (filenames)]"?

To clarify, I have no use for the default %artist%/%album%/%filename% or stuff like that because that creates new folders using the songs' metadata, I need the original folder structure copied.

Easiest is to use %path%, and ignore the double suffixes.

You won't get "D:\Phone music", but since all you want is to copy it to phone, you don't even have to change it manually afterwards.

Oh TRUE, thanks man, I'll just do that. I gotta get around to actually reading the Foobar wiki someday.
