After trying Jaikoz for a bit I decided to buy it. It works well, but I feel like it needs a few things before it can do everything to meet my demanding needs.

The reason I use Jaikoz is because of it's superior discogs support.

When I drop a bunch of folders (each one representing an album) from my unsorted pool into Jaikoz. Auto match is successful on only about a third of them. But the funny part is when I select just the tracks from one folder and I do a "Match to one discogs release" then it gets it. I wish I could somehow add this behavior into my automatch. Kind of like if I drag and drop a bunch of folders from PATHX so each one is PATHX/Folder1 PATHX/Folder2, if there would be a way to do a discogs match to one release on each of those folders.

Second is I want to primarily use Discogs data and not MB data. But I am afraid I don't understand "Always replace". Does this mean that if Discogs has no info on a field, but MB had it Discogs will replace MB's value with ""? If so it'd be a nice to have an option "Replace unless no data".

And finally for local correct based on file names. Can we add slashes in order to use both path leading up to a file's name and not just the filename? That would be super handy.

Again love Jaikoz and thank you very much for writing it.

You can, enable Preferences: Remote Correct : Group Songs by folder only. I cannot do this by default because it only gives good results if your songs are grouped one folder per album and not everyones are.

It means always replace value if have data, regardless of any existing data so if you set this value for Preferences: Remote Correct : Discogs then all values from Discogs will overwrite any existing values. BUT if Discogs doesnt have a value for a field and you already have a value for
that field Discogs wont overwrite it with blank, it will just leave it alone. So I think 'Always Replace' already does just what you want with 'Replace unless no data'

That is on the todo list.

Yeah I have this on. Although it works for most of my unsorted releases (most are DJ singles), I do still have a few multi-cd releases where the tracks are in multiple folders. It would be neat if there was a way to specify a common base path, and the first folder underneath that is treated as a release, as opposed to probably last folder on the path. But that's a bit complicated I know.

Thanks for clearing up what Always replace does

As I'm trying to sort through my huge backlog of unsorted stuff, I'm also running into issues of "associated files" not moving to the new folder name. Some seem to move ok, but It seems to leave behind a lot of files. Could there maybe be a "If the save action removes all music type files from a folder to a new release folder, then move every other file with it."?
