Firstly, thank you Florian for developing this app and allowing us to use it for free. I will certainly donate once i've worked out how to use the app!
May I also apologise in advance if this question has been covered before, but after searching for over 1/2 hour, I was unable to find an answer.
I've spent about five years painstakingly compiling my music library, consising of WMA and MP3 files. For each track, I have stated the genre, composer (which for jazz tracks is particularly time-consuming given sometimes there are multiple composers!) and added a tag identifying the source i.e. CD/download.
I have used Windows Media Player ("WMP") for the editing process over these years, and everything appears correct on WMP. But I note that for about 300 of the 12,000 tracks, while all the relevant information displays in WMP for these tracks, when viewing them on File Explorer, those details are missing. For an even greater number, the album cover is missing.
I need to now migrate my music files to a new computer.
I know that as soon as I move my music files to my new computer, these files are going to become an issue, as the metadata will be missing.
Is there a simple, automated way of getting all the metadata currently displaying for each track on WMP to copy over to the file itself, so that it shows in File Explorer? If I had to edit each file separately, this would take a very long time.
May I add, that if you have any other suggestions as to what might be a better way to proceed, I would be very glad to hear it!
