I have a problem which I can’t find any answer to. Whenever I create or copy a folder into a specific location metadata is always added to it. In the below example I created a directory in ~/Music and checked the metadata that Baloo reads from it and then moved the directory to it’s intended location. I then used Baloo to check what metadata the directory now had (If I use mkdir the metadata is also added.).
scott@scottubuntu:~$ balooshow /home/scott/Music/"Disk 1" 150199c00010303 66307 22026652 /home/scott/Music/Disk 1 Mtime: 1683163059 2023-05-04T09:17:39 Ctime: 1683163059 2023-05-04T09:17:39
After moving/creating a new folder in the desired location the following metadata appears:
scott@scottubuntu:~$ balooshow /mnt/data2/Vaults/"Music Vault"/Opera/Tommy/"Disk 1" 3fc100000822 2082 16321 /mnt/data2/Vaults/Music Vault/Opera/Tommy/Disk 1 [/mnt/data2/Vaults/Music Vault/Opera/Tommy/Disc 2/30 Tommys Holiday Camp.flac] Mtime: 1681528739 2023-04-15T11:18:59 Ctime: 1681552181 2023-04-15T17:49:41 Cached properties: Bitrate: 907000 Channels: 2 Duration: 90 Genre: Rock Sample Rate: 44100 Track Number: 13 Release Year: 2000 Artist: Opera Album: Tommy (Disc 2) Title: Tommy's Holiday Camp Publisher: Polydor Records
The biggest problem is that some form of link is created in the folder metadata to [/mnt/data2/Vaults/Music Vault/Opera/Tommy/Disc 2/30 Tommys Holiday Camp.flac] which is what I want to remove but it appears there is no way for Kid3 to access this data at the folder level. Is this possible and any other suggestions most welcome including what do I have problem with.
The “to” location uses NTFS as the filesystem.
This is a folder with flac files though new folders containing mp3 files have same issue
