EDIT: Turns out the problem was that the album art was too big. This is my first time encountering this problem so I don't know much but, I'm guessing that embedding a picture with a file size too high will break the files.
I read online that Flac supports up to 16mb max and my artwork was well below that but I guess it was still too big.
So I was organizing my music today when I discovered something really strange. I was trying to change the album artwork of one of my albums since it was a very low resolution image. I downloaded a high resolution version of the album cover and tried to embed the artwork. However, when I do this, it for some reason deletes all tag information.
For example, the tags are all normal and look right in Musicbee, but when looking at the files in the file explorer, the tags are all empty and won't let me edit them. I opened the files in Poweramp and the tag information was all missing as well.
If I do not embed the artwork, everything is fine. I do not know if this is a limitation or a bug but I just wanted to ask in case anyone else has come across this problem.
I can provide screenshots and files at request.
