Is there any way to get OBS to create a new folder for each date


New Member
Rather than have all of my recordings go into one folder for me to then manually sort through, is there any way for OBS to create a new folder each day (that I record something)

Yes, just set your Filename Formatting to something like: %CCYY-%MM-%DD\%CCYY-%MM-%DD %hh-%mm-%ss

I have mine set like this as well.
and just remember if you have multiple profiles, you have to update the file name formatting each of them

you can also go in and change it to %CCYY\%MM\%CCYY-%MM-%DD\%CCYY-%MM-%DD %hh-%mm-%ss
if you want it to be year / month / year month day/ file name
