First I want to thank Paul for updating and improving a great program that I have been happy to follow from the start. Now on to my question.

I have encoded my FLAC files to MP3 for streaming purposes, and Im using Madsonic for my own use at work. However, Madsonic "forces" my structure to be Artist/Album/tracks.

So I need to restructure everything, as I have it sorted as Genre/Album Artist - Album name (year)/tracks

I tried this on a folder of albums that previously has been ran through SongKong, as Flac files, been encoded to MP3 (through dbpoweramp). When I did the restructure through SongKong, it did not recogonize all tracks in the folders, and left some behind as the files were moved. So I ended up with some folders containing track 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,13 for instance. Leaving behind two-or more tracks in the original folders, even though the treat folder as album checkmark is on. This is quite troublesome, and I dont quite get it.

Also - I need a way to sort various artists albums. I cannot have one large folder with all the various artists albums in one - any thoughts on this?

again, thanks for your help so far and if someone has some tips for me, thanks.

You had Only allow match if all songs in folder match to one album, that doesnt make much sense UNLESS your rename mask groups songs into folders based on values that are not the same for all songs in the album.

Does that help, if not best thing is to email me your support files

You could further split by first let of album name, i.e have B, C, D ... folder
