Ive used the Artistname - Albumname (year)/Tracknumber - Artist - Trackname.extension for a while, and was happy to see that its included in the program as one of the presets. However, when outputting it creates foldernames like these:

Black Debbath - 2001 - Mongo Norway (FLAC)
Atom TM - HD (FLAC)

The files also seem to be named randomly (sometimes artist is included, some times not. Its a little strange.

This makes no sense to me. I have not altered the preset info, and have unchecked "use original release date" setting in the program.

If you select it in the Filenames mask drop down and select Edit what is the contents of the mask ?

For the standard artists (rename mask):

ifnotempty(albumartist,' - ')
+ ifnotempty(album,' ')
+ '(' + (year.length>4 ? year.substring(0,4):year) +')/'
+ ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ')
+ ifnotempty(artist,' - ')
+ title

For the VA albums:

"Va - "
+ ifnotempty(album,' ')
+ '(' + (year.length>4 ? year.substring(0,4):year) +')/'
+ ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ')
+ ifnotempty(artist,' - ')
+ title

Im so embarrassed - sorry. The "Rename files" checkbox on the bottom of the first settings page was not checked.

Testing now - Ill get rid of the egg on my face while re-scanning the folder.

- and voila, worked like a charm. Sorry to have bothered you.
