I just spent 3 days organizing my music. iTunes obviously screwed up a lot of the ID3 tags. I went through everything by genre took forever but it was worth it. Now everything is all organized although I still need to get some album art for some rare stuff.

What is the proper way to backup my music from now on? I won't be using iTunes anymore besides making playlists for my iPod.

Is it as simple as copying the music folder or is there more to it?

Is all the song information and album art stored inside the ID3 tag or is some stored in Foobar itself?

I don't want to have the same problem in the future if I get a new computer or transfer my music and find genre "?" or tracks with no titles and not numbered.

Thanks all!
