Hey all


I have a pretty large music collection currently being managed by itunes. When you add a folder to Jaikoz, it reorders the folder to the top of the list regardless of if you save changes or not.
Does anyone have any tips for working through thousands of folders and staying organized?
It can be a simple and some sort of tally with paper and pencil, anything. There's also a very good chance I'm missing something and just not looking at this problem the right way. I'm open to any suggestions.



I have a cache of music that, as I listen through it, add to my iTunes library. I will definitely be using the 'match, then add' feature for these.

Right now, my biggest concern is my current library.

Woah! I am very sorry I missed this.

What I meant was-

When you select a file for Jaikoz to work on, it reorders that folder in the selection menu and pulls it up to the top.

I was looking for advice on how to stay organized when going through a large library folder by folder, artist by artist.

Hi, okay so reread your question you mean you are using Add Folder to add a some songs and then using it against to add them more. When I do this the new files get added to the end not the start (because they have a higher record number) but I wouldn't usually work this way.

Usually people load all files in one go using Open Folder and the default file order would be based on the file path, or they use Open Folder to fix some songs, then close those songs and use Open Folder again to open the next batch.

I would recommend using either of these Open Folder methods instead of Add Folder

My trial expired, so I can't double check. But what you're saying makes sense. Will test after I buy and let you know.

Thanks!
