This is not possible at the moment. I have actually thought about adding some kind of support for subfolders in the "parts", but other things are more important.
It is however possible if you are a bit clever:
Use (or ) to get the name of the subfolder into your filenames, and then use parts (or other functions) to strip away the bits you do not want:
\Subfolder\Pictures - Misc Series #123\Flowers
Free format: ---
Result: "Flowers---Pictures - Misc Series #123"
The Replace: "---*#" with nothing.
