Another feature that might prove useful when handling large numbers of files would be to an option to ignore files where any of the tags are empty and leave them where they are, rather than moving to a folder such as Fix Me.
yeah that might be nice as an option.

Hello I just used your tool on my library and it worked great the first time, I have a question regarding duplicates. Is there a way to notify me of or skip songs I already own and have sorted? Currently it files them in the correct folder with the file I already have with a bracketed number but I don't want to have to perform search for all files with the bracketed number then delete them every time I add large amounts of music.

Thank you.

Hi, drumbeats1, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

Is there a way to notify me of or skip songs I already own and have sorted? Currently it files them in the correct folder with the file I already have with a bracketed number but I don't want to have to perform search for all files with the bracketed number then delete them every time I add large amounts of music.

I'm not quite sure I understand you.  When you add new music, are you adding from a different folder than the destination (your final music folder, I presume)?  Or, are you adding the new music the eventual destination and then constantly re-sorting the whole destination folder?

I've used this little program with great success in the past. I've recently installed it again after formatting my computer and now I can't seem to get it to do any organizing..The destination folder remains empty every time. I've set my Source and Destination folders and selected a Template. That's ll thats really required to make it function, right? Also those input preferences never save when the program is closed and reopened. What am I missing?

It sounds like you're running it from a UAC protected folder.  If that's the case, you have two choices:

  • Run the application with administrator rights.
  • Move the application to a non-UAC protected folder and run it from there.

Please let me know if that solves the issue you're having.   :)

I tired that but still no dice, although that's handy to know. I checked off "Recurse source folder" and that did it. I Read what that meant in the ReadMe file and then it made a lot more sense.. haha.

Thank you!

PS. I do have another small issue. I am trying to save my preferred template but keep getting this message: Error saving template file. The File may be open by another application.

PSS. Maybe your initial suggestion is right... I noticed that it organized the folders but the music isn't being carried over to the destination with the folders...
