Hi, I would like to create two folders (which I have already) one complete Album list and one incomplete album list folder.

I am scanning a directory and would like the music to be grouped and saved by Artist (or Various Artist) if its complete or not complete.

I have quite a few different directories I would like to scan. Does Song Kong look in the folders and notice a folder already containing 'Gregory Isaccs' so does overwrite the artist name with a new scan made.

Basically I would like to keep using the 'File Moving' folder I made (Complete Albums) and let Song Kong check the folders, if the artist already exists, check the album name.. if that exists check the quality and then choose whats best.

thanks

This is what I would suggest:

Create a new Folder Complete Albums
Configure suitable Rename mask for what you want
Configure SongKong to Only allow match if all tracks in album were matched to ensure only full albums are matched.
Configure File moving:Move Folder to point at Complete Albums
Then run Fix songs, you should just be left with songs that could not fully match an album.
Then Create a new Folder Partial Albums
Disable Only allow match if all tracks in album were matched
Configure File moving:Move Folder to point at Partial Albums
Run Fix Songs again
Now left with songs that could not be matched

So your songs are now organized:

Full Albums
Partial Albums
Unmatched
