I'm using v2.49 and noticed that sometimes when I save (I've selected all records) the action will blank out various records. I've not been able to identify anything that will reproduce the issue consistently. I'm in the process of a massive cleanup of my Music folder (currently 149GB, 1526 folders, 38,442 files), from Explorer2 (windows explorer replacement) I drag-n-drop a folder on to the Mp3tag window. I select all records in the Mp3tag window and I change some tag that is common to all records and save. I "sometimes" notice that one or two or three records now have all of the tags removed from them.
Sometimes when I save just the cover image will disappear from some records.
At times I've removed the tags from all of the records (I select all record, click on the X in the toolbar) after clearing the tags I select each record independently and I still see the cover for "some" records. I did NOT expect to see the cover for any of the records because I had removed all of the tags.
All of the above is random but I notice it rather frequently, I've invested over 30 hours in the clean-up effort, thus this issue is not something I'd expect other users to see as an issue.
What other details can I provide to help with this weird issue? I have another folder (198GB, 1200 folders) that also needs clean-up thus I expect to encounter this issue a lot.
In the attached image
- Selected All records (all records had a cover image)
- I selected the dropdown for Composer and selected blank
- I then clicked on the save icon in the toolbar
- the tags in record 8 became blank
NOTE - the record(s) blanked out by the save seem to be random, e.g. it is not always the same record. I estimate that this happens with one out of 20 saves.
