Hi Paul, for a variety of reasons (mostly to do with file permissions getting screwed up when both mapping a drive and working on UNC paths or even directly on the NAS on the same files) I do not use drive mapping anymore on Windows 10. It has caused me endless headaches.

It did not "delete" the files directly, but copied/moved it to a non-existent path on the NAS without error-checking.

This removed it from the file system which caused them to end up in the Network Recycle Bin (no copies anywhere else). Had I not had the NRB switched on, they would have been gone.

I did a test after I posted my issue here, and took a screenshot as it was saving the files, and as it copies you can see it drops the \\ at the front of the base path of the UNC as it saves.

I tried to attach a screenshot, but your server throws an exception error
I have been using Jaikoz to correct a myriad of folders I have butchered over the years. During the process I noted some files never end up in the destination where it was supposed to be.

I have a Windows 10 machine, with Jaikoz 9.3.0 NGS Build 1162. My files are on a NAS called QNAP2. The files was in a folder called \\QNAP2\Media\UnsortedMusic\D\Die Klipwerf Boereorkes\ with various subfolders

I corrected the metadata, artwork etc and the sentence casing. I then used the Correct Foldername from MetaData and also Correct Filename from Metadata. For some reason Jaikoz corrected the Base Folder to \qnap2\media\unsortedmusic\d\ and the Sub Folders to Die Klipwerf Boereorkes\Sub 1 etc

On saving, it obviously could not find the destination, but instead of displaying an error message, it saved it to "nowhere", with the result being the files were deleted from my NAS. Fortunately I have a Network Recycle Bin and found the files there. I have done thousands of files prior to this, and I have seen they have all ended up being "deleted" instead of saved to their new destination.

I always find myself wanting to add fields to the Tag Browser (Album Artist, Year, Disc No for example). There is a LOT of white space available up there that can be very useful...

Hi, ensure Preferences:Remote Correct:Format:Add Ep and Single release types to album titles is unchecked. 

I have the same problem (did not before installing this version). I have checked the solution that was provided to OP, and restarted, but it keeps on adding the [Compilation] tag to the folder
Thank you. Will give that a shot
I have a bunch of files which are from one artist (4000+) and they have been scrambled/duplicated/messed up over the years and should form one album.

I am trying to use the "Match to Album" function to recreate the original collection, but it keeps on giving me an error "Unable to find a suitable release for the selected songs, does not contain enough songs, require 4271 but only has 784"

I understand the error, but it does not help. How do I go about solving this problem?
