First contact situation...

I am previewing Jaikoz and it looks very promising for me. However, I have done a search and then spent several hours reviewing forum topics and the subject of preventing auto correction of tag data never showed up. Is there a way to have a special tag that tells the scan engine to ignore a song or album?

I have a lot of Canadian and European recordings that do not show up in the databases I have been using when tagging, or that information is wrong for the specific disk I have and I have manually entered data from the album jacket.

Is there some way, when this program is looking through my song folders, to first flag items I have manually entered data for so that the entries I have made will NOT or can not be changed?

On one occasion I lost hours of work before I realized a program being trialed was actually "helping correct" things as it went through to show me what it could do!

Having such a file lock feature may become vital when I start adding in the digitized copies of several thousand vinyl recordings and a thousand or so prerecorded cassettes that essentially are starting from scratch. Once I can confirm the data is correct I want to make sure it does not get changed.

This may also be a way to reduce the effective size of my database since it could be used to eliminate the need to scan / analyze that information on future passes, which before adding my currently Analog recordings, is 510GB / 109K files / 13,650 folders, which will be a slow, tough job to fully scan every time.

All thoughts and suggestions welcome.
