Just finished tagging, and i’m running into some file saving issues. That’s when i noticed that songs were being placed within folders within folders, etc. Example: C:\Users\David\Music\Singularity\Singularity\Singularity\Singularity\Singularity\Alone Remix\Along.mp3
what the heck? Why is my song placed in 5 folders all named the artist? Is there a quick fix in the settings where if i resave all my files, it’ll fix it for me? Or do i have to manually delete a bunch of pointless files? Thank you.

Yes, set the folder to save to in the settings. The default is “.”, which saves to the same folder and can easily result in the behavior you described.
