can I save a file list?


Hi everyone,

This is my first post here, so please be gentle :smiley:

Can I save the tag data for a folder or folder tree so that MP3tag doesn't have to scan the folder(s) every time? Scanning thousands of files takes quite awhile when I only want to find one file.

sorry if this is a dumb question... I haven't been able to find the answer on my own



There's no such feature.

But why don't you use for example the explorer to find your file and then start Mp3tag via context menu.
The latest beta also supports loading single files.


Thanks Dano,

I don't want to edit the tags, I just want to use MP3tag (in this situation) for filtering, sorting and creating a playlist. I thought that the program would have the ability to save all the files for a fast load of the data then use the refresh to pick up changes... oh well :flushed:

WinExplorer wouldn't work as I want to search and sort on the tag contents.. usually some sub-string of TITLE.
