Folder Structure / Media Query

Recommended Posts

When adding an existing MP3 collection into MBA, does MBA leave your existing music folder Structure as it is, or does it rearrange folders and files? 

The media that is gathered by MBA... Does that end up in a separate MBA folder Structure, or does it get added into your existing music folder Structure?  Can this be configured? 

Also, Is there an FAQ anywhere for MBA?

Musicbox does not touch your folder structure, you just point it at your music folder and it catalogues what you have. Any artist images it downloads is kept in the musicbox folder structure, album covers are not downloaded but are pulled from your existing artwork.

Correct, unless you tell it to. It will change metadata and such if you tell it to, but not on its own.
