Question changed save template - how to resort files ?

I have this nice problem.
After long test I discovered that the save template that works best for me is:

{author_sort}/{series:||/}{series_index:|| - }{title}

The problem is that till today I was using the standard one

{author_sort}/{title} - {author}



So the files are saved in the "old" structure.
How can I move them to the new one without deleting all the books? (I had to search all the info, add info from my devices, etc)

Is there any way?


Second question: even if I use title when I check the saved name of the files is title_sort

in other words I would expect to find The Bourne Identity while I get Bourne Identity, The

What am I doing wrong?

Are you sure you want to do this?
Do you ONLY read series written by a single Author (or don't care if your series get split up, totally separated by Author)?

BTW
WHICH Kindle? They do have (driver) differences?

Yes I'm sure as the series are, for example: Shannara
then the author is Terry Brooks

I have a Nook and a Kindle touch

Both of them are awful on series management so if I have all books under Terry Brooks how the hell do I know which is the n.1 of the series and which one is n.4 ?

This is why I found that solution.

Code:
{series}/{series_index:0>2s}-{title}_{authors}
Prepend the Index to the title. that make it sort in series # order

having Author before, just messes things up if having different authors (or combinations) writing in the series.

Sort goes from Left to Right so the significant part is: {series}/{series_index:0>2s} (I put all of the series in a separate folder), but you could replace the green with any allowed character

good suggestion.
But the problem remains... I already have all the files (250+) in the old mode how do I convert them with the new structure?
