Hi There,

Can you give me more information on Delete Duplicates please?

Specifically does this apply to the whole selection loaded of just to songs from within the same folder.

I've several compilations that may have the same songs in their folders and I'd like to make sure they are not deleted when using this feature.

Cheers

Hi Paul,

An example that I can't move up one level from would be:

z:\Music\Nirvana\Nevermind\track06.mp3
z:\06\Nirvana\Nevermind\track06.mp3

z;\Music\Beck\loser.mp3
z:\06\Beck\Loser.mp3
And there were a few of these structures created and I have no idea why.


The other thing looked as you derscribed:

Z:\Music\Drowning Pool\Pieces of Nothing\Bodies.mp3
Z:\Drowning Pool\Pieces of Nothing\Bodies.mp3

and in this case I could do what you suggest.

It's not a big deal it just means I'll have to work on a copy in future and merge the new updated folders in as I do them (probably what I should have done anyway!

Cheers

Don't know if it's just cos it's my first day back at work but that confused me

Nah I kinda get what you mean, I just don't understand what I need to do now. I have a backup so I'm restoring as I type but I don't want to have to do that too many times this week

I forgot to say that it also created a few weird folders with names I didn't have anywhere and also some folders like 06\Nirvana\RadioSessions\mollys lips.mp3 when the original was in the correct Nirvana folder structure in the first place, but had been moved to this new location.


I know I probably just need to read the instruction more carefully (or at least just read them but if you could give me an obvious place to look at for what i'm trying to do, rather than me having to sort through my collection one album at a time I'd appreciate it I know you've indicated this at the bottom of the post but you I mean more in the way of me getting a total understanding of how this is supposed to work.

Cheers

Hi Folks,

I have run a lot of folders through the Autocorrect Tags tagger, which worked as I expected and seemed to go well. When I used Correct Sub Folders from Tags and Correct FileName From Tags All hell broke loose

What actually happened is that most, if not all of the folders I had been working on were moved to teh root directory I was working on, leaving the old folder structure in place but with no files in it?

What I wanted was to have all my files updated with proper tags, and moved to subfolders within their current folder structure that were related to the album and artist is that didn't exist.

I've used this feature before without hassle, but not often so i don't know if it's possible I've done something.

Here's the File and Folder Correct settings I have:

RENAME FOLDER FROM TAGS:
%bestartist%%folderseperator%%album%

RENAME FILE FROM TAGS:
$if(%bestartist%,%bestartist%-)$if(%album%,%album%-)$if(%trackno%,%trackno%-)%title%

Any more info required please ask!

Cheers

Forgot to upload the log as well.

Problems start at around May 2, 2009 10:05:52 when my folders are thrown everywhere

Just wanted to ask if it is possible to transfer a Windows license to Linux (Ubuntu)? as I'm fed up with messing around in windows again!

Also...

I run this fine app on a Windows XP machine connected to a drive via the network which was formatted as ext3 (basically SMB connection).

I run a large number of files and the app failed/crashed taking my entire music collection with it (which was restored later).

Any pointers?
