I am new to Foobar. I didn't know there was an official forum.

I am coming from using iTunes for years. I only use it because I have an old nano and iPod touch.

I am finding the music organization very poor compared to iTunes 'automatically manage music.'

When I remove a song in Foobar, it's not actually deleted. I am not exactly sure what this feature even does. When you open Foobar again, the song is back. I assume 'remove' is only for playlists.

If you go 'right click > file operations > delete file' it will move the song to the recycle bin. The folder however remains.

So if I delete 100 songs from different albums, there will be a ton of empty folders. So I will have to go through each folder one by one to clean out my music library. This is not convenient at all.

How can I fix this?

fb2k+other programs show different values from tags / Which ID3 to use
fb2k seems to be showing my songs in a wrong order. How do I fix that

I now direct your attention to #5 of the Terms Of Service, which can be interpreted here as meaning ‘don’t just dump all your questions in one thread’. Not only does it make it hard for other people to follow anything: it may reduce your chances of them noticing or being willing to read everything you’ve posted. People may not even open a thread based on the title, whereas they may have exactly the answer you want.

I don’t mean that you should start a new thread for everything, but if something’s not related in any useful way, post it separately. Thanks.
