Leia Deleted My NFO FIles!

I did nothing outside of KODI. I ran Export, then looked to see the results and discovered a problem. I took no other actions.

In previous versions I chose Separate files and KODI would generate the Artist.nfo and Album.nfo and deposit them in the Album/Artist folder along with the actual media (music) file.  That way everything was kept together. Not confusing at all, as everything was kept together. The "No overwrite" setting worked. Simple.

That option apparently is either absent or obscured in the new version. When I chose To Library Folder, I kept getting an error that the Artist Information folder needed to exist. When I read the documentation, it appeared that I needed to either accept the "less confusing" (less confusing to whom?) option of putting them all in one place or to create new folders in every one of my existing Artist folders to duplicate my export process of before. Why did you take away the option of simply maintaining the previous method? As far as I can tell, Export has nothing to do with the actual functioning of KODI, so why not simply provide this option?

Back to my problem. I located the nfo and other files from the Export in another single folder in the same location as the "Single" backup. However, there are files missing. I included other artwork files as well as the artist.jpg and album.jpg in those folders. They are all missing. In the existing Artist/Album folders (the ones with the music files), the nfo file is new, with a different size and date from the previous one. How is that "not deleting"?

I periodically backup all of the contents of my Artist/Album folders (except the actual media files), and well as the Movie files, with a program outside of KODI. The last one was April 1, so I can retrieve the missing files from there. I just added a bunch but haven't made any edits, so I can use the new ones. But I don't trust the Export process any longer, and I will maintain my other backups more rigorously.
