Hi Aminifu, oh yes that is also a good categorizing method.. I think what I'm really trying to clarify is that tagging has become a quite popular technique for categorizing in place of the folder tree method. I would say basically eliminating tedious steps of multiple tasks of folder tree development and tagging, in other words why create a folder for the artist if it's just as easy to create it in the tag, eliminating a double step naming folders and tags.
I think it really comes down to how big of a collection a user is manipulating.
I hope no one perceives me wrong, I'm not at all criticizing individuals methods of organizing their music, everyone will do whatever works best for them, I'm stating that tagging is more preferable for categorizing for large quantities of files than multiple folders in my opinion.
Now, how a certain program handles a person's method could make a difference, depending on what the user is doing.
I actually use SAM Party DJ when helping my cuzin DJ sometimes at a club, it has no problems with the music files. Winamp Pro is my home baby I use to jam at home.
In fact, I used your method for years, (Tree type organizing with folders), but have appreciated the tag approach much better with less folder naming.
So yes, that's my goal, to have ALL my music files in only a few folders, if not one, and let the music programs handle it from there.. So far it's been ok, even the Album covers.
Thanks for the thread, Ima check it out to see if it's some good stuff I can learn from it.
