You have to delete the folders and files from the file systems.I usually use the "Open destination folder" option and then I delete what I want using Explorer.Regards, Andrea
foobar2000 does not have automatic real-time synchronisation of file and folder structure in line with tags, à la iTunes, as that seems to be what you want.You can periodically tell it to reorganise your folders according to their tags using File Operations. As for automatic deletion of now-empty folders, I guess that’s something that will have to remain a manual task.
But if changes are updated in Foobar and don't actually apply to the mp3 files, then this program is not good as it's made out to be.

The tags are updated in the data. It’s just a matter of the core app not automatically renaming things. It is not advertised as doing so, with the result that your complaining about an undeserved reputation only really amounts to trolling.
You need to instruct File Operations to rename/move files according to their tags.Base folder: F:\Music\Naming pattern: %artist%\%album%\%tracknumber% %title%Or whatever naming scheme you want. Unless I am mistaken, you haven’t set up any such pattern. Try that, and then it should work to simply run that on all files that you wish to process. Of course, please test on a small copied set of files first, just to make sure it works as you want.Check the title-formatting reference guide on out wiki for more information on the relevant syntax.
Then all I have time to say right now is that you’re doing it wrong. Please read the wiki to get an idea of how to actually use it.
When I paste that into the File name pattern to move one song it does this.Create directory D:\Music\Artist\Album Name\Artist\Album Name Move song1.mp3 (the song I want to move)Move song2.mp3 (I don't want to move this)Move song3.mp3 (I don't want to move this)Move albumart1.jpg ?Move albumart2.jpg ?Move albumart2.jpg ?Move desktop.ini ?Move folder.jpg ?
