HI!! Is there something able to rebuild a FLAC file from scratch or simply compress ezisting metadata? I figured out that when I insert an exhaustive tag such as large cover picture then remove it, the FLAC file won't shrink! Replacing an attachment by a bigger one obviously biggers the file. Of course I need the tool to preserve all existing metadata.

Create a custom foobar2000 converter action...

For example:

Encoder:                   metaflac.exe
Extension:                 flac
Parameters:               -s --dont-use-padding --remove --block-type=PADDING -o %d
Converter name:         METAFLAC
Bitrate:                     blank
Settings:                   Strip padding from FLAC files

I'm trying this profile and get error console with 18 out of 18 tracks converted with major problems. For each file I get error
Source: "E:\test\01 - Track01.flac"
Unable to open file for writing (File is already in use) : "E:\test\01 - Track01.flac"
Conversion failed: File is already in use

Using Destination:
Output folder: source file folder.
Output type: tracks into individual files.
File name pattern: %filename%
Overwrite existing files.

Processing: None.
Other: When finished: do nothing.

What did I set wrong?
