well, you could just use the 3rd view for that, since it would be all mp3. but for maintenance reasons you might find the second view useful, as well as a FLAC only view, b/c that way you could see quickly that you had an exact match in file count, (ie. you could be sure every flac had a mp3 dupe).

in the first folder i suggested, you could continue to break it down, so like this:

..\audio\music\FLAC\..
and
..\audio\music\mp3\..

it would not be a problem to do that.

Anyway, I'm making a fuss over nothing big now ;-).
i'm not sure i follow this... what i do is just setup the storage the way i want it to be "in production" ie. in use, and then i periodically copy the whole thing to a backup drive.
