I am using file moving and naming to organise my folders. If, after the initial tagging and saving, I don’t turn file naming off, Picard will save tracks as the same file name but with “(1)” appended to the name. Why? The script (see below) does not call for this. I would have thought that if the script creates the same name as the existing file it should just leave it unchanged rather than create a new name with (1) appended. Is there any way I can stop this behaviour (other than remembering to turn off file naming before saving a re-tagged folder?).
$replace(%album%,:,;)/$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),Disc %discnumber%/,)$num(%tracknumber%,2) $if($len(%title%)>52,$left(%title%,25)...$right(%title%,25),%title%)
EDIT: If I repeat the save, then it will revert to the original file name, which is handy.
