I have been using Jaikoz for some time now and I create my folder schema in a structure that seemed to work for me at the time.

I am think about going over my music collection with the newest Jaikoz to see if I can get more information, as a lot of my files were run with very old version of Jaikoz. I have a large collection of Classical music and I see the newest version has some parameter just for Classical music.

What I want to know is what would be the best folder schema for the Jaikoz software.

Currently my structure is

BASE / Album / Artist / Album (disc no) / Filename


This structure seems to work for me but maybe I am missing using certain features in Jaikoz because of my structure. I have seen some suggestion with

BASE / Artist / Album / Filename

Now would be a good time to make the switch to a new structure. What would be the pros for going with the later.

I tried to find past forum posting but did not find much information but then maybe I was not using the right search words. If this has been answered in another forum posting please let me know.

Thanks

Robert

BASE / Artist / Album / Filename

or

BASE / Artist / Album / Disc No / Filename (when multi disc album)

is slightly better for helping Jaikoz identify multi disc albums

Paul,

I like to keep my format structure the same so does it hurt anything to use

BASE / Artist / Album / Disc No / Filename (when multi disc album)

Does it hurt if I always put a /Disc No/ even if it is only one disc?

I sorted my files like this:
U/U2/song.mp3

Code:
function ifnotempty(value,sep){
      return value.length > 0 ? value + sep : '';
  }
  
 
  ifnotempty (albumartist.length>0 ? albumartist.substring(0,1)+ folderseparator:'' +albumartist,artist,folderseparator)

If you care about albums I would not recommend that, because if songs are organized only by artist not album its difficult to match songs to the correct album. It also means that players would have trouble playing songs that have not been matched on an album basis because they could not fall back onto the folder name as album name instead. But if you only care about songs and not albums then its not such a problem.
