As someone who uses mp3tag on a daily basics, today I encountered a problem, if anyone might know more about this I could use your help please! I'll elaborate as much as possible:
I'm not sure exactly what lead to this, but I opened a folder of music files in mp3tag (60 songs). I went through the "extended tags" view for each song because I deleted some songs & I had to fix the track number accordingly. Suddenly after going through the first 6 songs (pressing ">" button in extended tags window), instead of loading the following song, it delayed for a second and then the mp3tag shut down.
I don't remember much because I tried multiple times but I noticed that some random temporarily file appeared in my windows explorer folder of those 60 songs, with a size of 0KB. I tired closing mp3tag/windows explorer but the file didn't disappear. I thought the file was related to the issue I'm having since it never occurred to me, so I deleted it (idk if it was a mistake or not).
Now I'm assuming the problem is related to temporary file/directory. I took all the songs to a new folder in windows explorer and it worked fine, but once I renamed the folder to the same name the original had, the bug reproduces.
I understand that I can do a workaround for this issue but naming the folder with something different, however 1. I'm very organized and it needs to have the same name, I prefer. 2. It's not a critical issue, in the end those specific files in that folder can be edited but the application will shut down eventually.
If anyone understands perhaps what happened, if I can change anything, or fix it, I would greatly appreciate it!
