Works Perfectly as Desired, and as usual Thank you, Now I think it has almost come to a full blown application and offers all the features which a full blown application can offer...

Really Thank you, I don't get tired requesting and you don't get tired by fulfilling it, and Thank you for the same.

Tag2Folder issues and request
« Reply #28 on: February 19, 2010, 02:17:49 PM »
I hope this is the appropriate place to make comments and suggestions.  First off, great little program .. just what I was looking for.  These are some thoughts that came to mind as I tried it out for the first time.  I hope they can be of help...

- Tags2Folders doesn't remove its temp folder/files ($$$$$_Tags2Folders_temp) it created in the Windows temp directory.  Is this intentional?

- The program has a problem when used on a system with a different DPI setting (Rt.click on Desktop, Settings, Advanced, DPI setting, set to 120dpi).  Some of the text is partially missing. (see: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=129586)

- Doesn't maintain Created datestamps on the copied/moved files.  Could this be added.  Sometimes Created is useful when sorting/finding/organizing files.

- There's no way to pause or abort the process once started, short of hitting the big "X".  Could the 'Go' bar act as a toggle?

- If files are already in the destination, could you skip the copy/move if filename and MD5 matches (as an option).  This might speed things up, effectively copying/moving only those files that aren't already in the destination.

- Could config.ini to be changed to Tags2Folders.ini?  That way the program could exist in a directory where other programs create or read a config.ini.

- Config.ini doesn't remember Copy/Move option.  Could this be added?

- Will this work with 10,000+ files (due to limited buffer space, etc.)?  I just want to make sure before I let'er rip...  ;>)

Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment and feedback.  Yep, this is the place for requests and suggestions.   :)

v1.0.4 - 2010-02-19
    + Added option to preserver file modification times.  (Thanks, TT1)
    + Added capability to cancel file processing once started.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Copy/Move files options is now remembered between sessions.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Changed configuration file name to Tags2Folders.ini.  (Thanks, TT1)
    ! Temp folder is removed properly now.  (Thanks, TT1)


- The program has a problem when used on a system with a different DPI setting (Rt.click on Desktop, Settings, Advanced, DPI setting, set to 120dpi).  Some of the text is partially missing. (see: http://go.microsoft....wlink/?LinkID=129586)

Hmmm...I do have code in place for 120DPI boxes and it looks fine on my test VM under that DPI setting.  Would you mind posting a screenshot and I'll fix it in the next build?

- If files are already in the destination, could you skip the copy/move if filename and MD5 matches (as an option).  This might speed things up, effectively copying/moving only those files that aren't already in the destination.

I don't overwrite any existing files so they should be "skipped" already.

- Will this work with 10,000+ files (due to limited buffer space, etc.)?  I just want to make sure before I let'er rip...  ;>)

Yes, shouldn't be a problem.  The slowest part is the actual copying/moving of the files.  The tag scanning is adapted from my Trout audio player and is very fast (if I may be so bold).  I'd be curious to know how it does perform for you, though.   :D

"BTW, TT1, did Tags 2 Folders work okay for you?"

Before I do this I'm still going through and tagging my files.  I have several that have no tags, just "author - title.mp3".  Do you know of an easy way to write the author and title to the v1 and v2 tags from the filename?

The 120dpi fixes look good, but I need my reading glasses to see the tiny text...  ;>)

I use mp3Tag for all my tagging.  http://help.mp3tag.d...n_converter.html#ttf

Apologies for that.  I don't really support the 120 DPI settings so much as ignore them.   :-[

I'm ordering my collection of music files. Came across this fine program. Thanx

For my ease of use I could use of another token. I have for example a collection cd of filmmusic. There are variuous artist on there. If I use tag2folder these songs will go in to seperate folders.

i would like to keep them together. I have make use of the tag "ALBUM ARTIST" in de songs. Would it be possible to use this token?

v1.0.9 - 2012-12-04
    + Added $albumartist token.  Because there is no hard standard for an
      ALBUMARTIST tag, Tags 2 Folders evaulates for the following tags
      (in order): ALBUM ARTIST (APEv2 tag), ALBUMARTIST (APEv2 tag),
      MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMARTIST (APEv2 tag) & the ID3v2 TPE2 frame.
      (Thanks, pat.rick)
    + Added ability to edit and save multiple token strings.

I Let v1.0.9 it run over night works like a charm I use the token $albumartist\$album

Got a few -= FixMe=- I changed them and run the whole thing again. Got a few fixme's again but mpetag says no wrong doing here. After inspection of the titels. It look like the remaining fixme's are song I bought with iTunes. Foobar my mediaplayer and mp3tag sees the albumartist. Even in explorer evrything seems ok but eventually I saw the problem. Those itunes files are m4a's

So this is a kinda long story to tell that tag2folder can't read the albumartist from m4a files

I can fix them manually but i thought I let you know!

Regards Patrick

Can you provide me with a couple of those files?  I'll see if I can add support for the m4a format.
