Hi all,
I got the idea to try a PowerShell script to automatically copy select music files to other folders based on Rating. Wasn't having any luck with a Rating filter but then noticed in explorer the metadata isn't there.  Rating, Title, genre, etc isn't seen when looking at a file's Properties through explorer.

In Preferences >> Tags(1), I have "store ratings in the music file" checked. Is the metadata just in the MusicBee db?  Can it get copied into the file so external tools can use it? And if Rating should get stored in music file, why doesn't explorer see it?  What am I missing?

Thanks in advance and keep up the grrrrrreat work!
