PR15821 (create empty artist info folders)
#2
I have just finished testing this.

It became apparent from some user feedback that using the option To library folders prevented users from easily further curating their library once the Artist folders had been created. The Artist folders only option alleviates this problem by creating empty artist folders without the NFO Files and artwork that prevented online lookups. These folders must be created in the Artist Information folder location. Adding the facility to allow users to select a folder may cause them to become confused and inadvertently select a different location and then wonder why their library is not working.

You could never set a Destination folder using the To library folders option in prior versions of v18.

The Separate files for each item should be seen as kind of a portable backup. Export it to where you want, do with it what you will as it won't affect Kodi in any way.

To clarify...

Single file... Export to a single xml file containing all albums and artists additional info. No artwork is exported. This can be imported by Kodi
To library folders... Export nfo files. Artist NFO Files to the Artist Information folder. Album nfo files to the album folders. This is scanned by Kodi
Separate files for each item... User selected location and Artist folders are created with album subfolders. NFO's and artwork are saved to relevant folders. Cannot be used by Kodi
Artist folders only... Creates empty Artist folders to populate the Artist Information Folder used by Kodi. Can be run everytime new albums are added to the library to create the new Artist folders.
