Windows 7: Batch file to move (many) duplicted folder contents - Help!!

Batch file to move (many) duplicted folder contents - Help!!

Hope I can explain my difficulty.
I have duplicated folders album name for all my music files.
As there is quite a considerable number I wondered if it was possible to batch file (automate) the process.

I can not delete "d" as this would delete all the tracks.
What I need to do is move the tracks at "e" into folder "c" and delete the then empty folder "d"
Folder structure is thus:

(a) Music Collection
(b) /Artist Name
(c) /Artist Name/Album Name
/Artist Name/Album Name/Album Name
(e) /Artist Name/Album Name/Album Name/The Tracks

What I am trying to end up with is:
/Artist Name
/Album Name
/The Track files

Is this possible or has anyone any suggestions.
Thanks for looking

You can try this;

DropIt: Sort Your Files With A Drop!

<http://dropit.sourceforge.net/>

You can set up rules so that the software sorts your files as you want them.

There are lots of utilities for checking duplicates;

AllDup, from this site, is a good one;

AllSync Backup Software: windows backup, backup and restore, backup program, sync program, pc backup software, backup utility, backup solution, computer backup, sync folders, automatic backup, file synchronization

<http://www.allsync.biz/en_index.htm>

All these things have to be used with due care.
