I use this component for backup purposes only between two disks.
But i thing there is a problem when m-tags files already exists in folders because it seams that it can't overwrite ( although i have check it to do so ) the old files with the updated tags.
So i have to delete the old files and create new every time i want to make a backup.
Also when i have lyrics in a tag m-tags only writes a dot (.) . Is this normal.
Anyway thanks for this great plugin and i hope in future development.

I had no issues with m-tags this far though today I noticed it was somewhat broken. While it still displays tracks perfectly fine it only shows about a third of all indexed files when I have the filter on artists rather than year, album title or genre. Is there any way to resolve this issue without having to re-add every single !.tags file?

Never mind. Just had to remove the Artist tab and add it and it was back to normal.

Thanks @luigimercurio, m-TAGS seems to be exactly what I needed to make compilations with individual tagging and cover without the burden of having duplicate files.

But how do I export these virtual albums?

File Operations > Copy to... only copies the !.tags and !.tags.front.bin files. So I use Convert to create the new files with applied tagging. Apart from the occasional "Could not attach image/File in use" bug this works as expected and seems a good choice in case of FLAC to FLAC or FLAC to lossy. But I want to avoid transcoding from lossy origin files, so how would I do that?
