@hurricane51 there is more than one way to achieve what you want.

Probably the easiest is to set the Artist Information Folder (in Settings > Media > Music) to the folder immediately above all your artist folders, then do a "To Library Folders" type export. Select "Albums, Album Artists" as the items to export and ensure that "Overwrite existing files" is disabled.

For anyone else reading this the success depends upon the simplicity of the music folder layout and folder names, and that the user is only interested in album artists (not guests, those only on compliations or others that contribute to the recording) and have no albums with multiple album artists (where artists in their own right have collaborated), and no album artists with the same name.

Then select Albums, Album artists as items to export. The result should be the artist.nfo and art will be exported to the artist folder (Album artist) and the album.nfo and art to the album subfolders. Is that correct?
Yes, because the artist and album folders are named exactly as in the music file tags that would also achieve what you want. As I said more than one way to achieve the result.

For others reading this thread I will encourage them to consider puting artist art and NFO files somewhere separate from their media files. It allows users to arrange their music in much more diverse (and human friendly) ways, avoids having folders of just artist nfo files and art mix amongst their music (if they have nfor or art for artists other than album artists) and supports art and nfo for all music not just that which can be arranged simply.
