I am looking at purchasing Jaikoz, and have the read the manual a bit. I do have a couple specific questions which may help me decide.

First is there options to automatically correct certain fields_ for example The Beatles to Beatles, The

Second, second can you have the application only search for and populate certain types of metadata. For example only title, artist, year, and album art, ignoring everything else.

I have 117,000 songs that are in pretty good shape, just with some missing data. What I would like to do, is search an entire artist, with certain built in rules, like capitalize everything in a song, set the THE "THE" artists correctly, but do not even download apply the 60 other meta fields I do not care about.

1. Jaikoz fills in both artist name (The Beatles) and the sort artist name/b] (Beatles, The). We also have [b]local correct/b] that can be used to replace certain words and apply different capitalization, does that answer the question ?
2. Yes in b]Preferences:MusicBrainz:Format & Format 2
you can specify which of fields should be overwritten when matching to MusicBrainz, and the same for matching to Discogs in Preferences:Discogs

I'm confused about the local correct. What does it take to use whatever rules you have in local correct, or is does it automatically use those whenever you "save"?

Same question goes for "File and Folder" correct.

I understand how to set it all up, but I don't know how the application knows when to apply all of these rules.

You have to tell it my using the Action menu or adding to the Autocorrecter

i.e.

Action:File and Folder Correct:Correct Filename from Metadata
Action:Local Correct:Correct Artist

I think I am beginning to understand. I did purchase a license.

I am using some folder and file renaming capabilities (moving to another folder). Is there a way to leave the old files in the old location?
