Update folder structure after updating metadata

Say, I have a folder, Notes from Underground > Notes from Underground.epub in the Calibre library, because I have "Notes from Underground" as the book's author. And say I then correct the metadata to the right author. How do I apply the changes to the folders now so that it's Fyodor Dostoevsky > Notes from Underground.epub?

Calibre does that automatically although its internal structure is:

Fyodor Dostoevsky > Notes from Underground (123) > Notes from Underground - Fyodor Dostoevsky.epub

Oh, you're right! The reason I didn't see it happening is I had title as author and vice versa. Thanks.

Any chance I can modify the structure? I'd like to remove the (132) and just have the book title as the .epub name. Something else I noticed is it replaced ":" as "_" in the folder name for another book, since ":" is an invalid character for a folder title. Any way I can modify what character it chooses for this?

Also, what does the parenthesis stuff stand for?

No, not in your calibre library. See here for more details.

If you want your own custom file structure you need to use calibre's Save-to-Disk with your own Save Template to export/copy books to somewhere else on your disk.

The number is the unique id of that book in that calibre library. It's fundamental to everything calibre does.

Calibre is a Librarian, there is no need to look under the skirts.
Sent To ... has a template system that can control the file path EXPORTED
(the default is {authors} - {title}, I prefer to use {author_sort} , never understood looking under the authors first name folk )
