I’ve got about 30GB of music files sorted by genre: Rock, Pop, and Dance.
I just downloaded and started using Picard so that these many files can be changed to the [%artist% - %title%] format.
Everything I try to change in the settings results in these files being created in their own folder for [%artist%], subfolder for [%album%], and then being named with the track number and title.
My car stereo has a USB input. If the thumb drive has many folders, it takes 45 seconds or more for my stereo to read the drive whenever I plug it in or switch my source to it. If I can put 80,000 files into 10 folders, the stereo can read the thumb drive in about 3 seconds.
Q1. How do I get my music files to store in the same, flat directory?
The program ran through all of my files, but whenever I try to exit, Picard tells me “there are 854 unsaved files. Closing Picard will lose all unsaved changes.”
I have clicked Save on the toolbar and Save on the “File > Save” menu, but I still get this.
Q2. How do I save my files?
