You shouldn't.

The purpose for Skip Folder is only to skip certain folder that are NOT movie Folder names.

Eg:
C:\Whatever\50 First Dates\Screenshot\image01.jpg

When image01.jpg is checked, it will look for the folder it came from. - which is Screenshot.
Since we define "Screenshot" as a folder to skip, it will then look for the parent folder (50 First Dates).

This is the purpose of Skip Folder.

I have a suspicion to what went wrong. I use Live Mesh (Microsoft) to sync folders. And I think the txt files for reference may have gotten out of sync and screwed up between 2 computers.

Don't think so. I can simulate the same problem on my end when no Skip Folder is entered.
All my movies showed up as some weird movie name.

Just to explain a bit more about movie mode.
Fetch Folder IS important. Besides quick paw fetch, it also servers as a block for folder name checking.

Fetch Folder assigned Eg:
C:\Whatever\UnsortedMovie\50 First Dates.avi

When theRenamer checks 50 First Dates.avi, it will look for it's parent folder (C:\Whatever\UnsortedMovie\).
AND
Since C:\Whatever\UnsortedMovie IS the Fetch Folder, theRenamer knows Not to use it, and Not to continue checking parent folders.
theRenamer has no choice but to scan the filename instead.

Now it all makes sense. Thank you. And the correction worked.

Awesome tool! Once my wife is working again, I'll be donating!
