Thanks for both the flexible and useful code and for the quick and friendly support.

One thing I have SongKong do is organize albums under the composer's or album artist's "sortname" tag if there is one - that is, lastname, firstname.

This works well, but then there are empty folders left over under the firstname, lastname form.

I can see from forum remarks that Jailkoz has an option to delete empty folders. Is there such an option in SongKong?

Answers, both correct:

1. Yes, the leftover folders are completely empty, including invisible files. This has happened on numerous tests.

2. After receiving your reply, I tried it again with a different group of albums, just to make sure, and this time, the empty folders were deleted as expected.

Maybe the previous tests weren't running to completion and now I've debugged my masks completelly, except that I didn't change anything in the masks between the previous test and this one, just the albums in the test folder; or

Maybe it's the repairman effect, where, when you take your car in to the mechanic, it runs perfectly. I do software support, and I've seen this happen many times. The secret name for this mysterious effect is operator error. I'll let you know if it happens again or I figure it out. Thanks for your help, sending invisible rays, etc.
