After reading about how to get 2 way synchronization to finally work (by making sure the Playlist path was not in the Music path), I completely re-synched my micro-SD card, and now music is synching the entire folder path to my card. 

For example, My SD card is F:/.  Previously all my music would be F:/Artist1, F:/Artist2 etc.  Now, my SD Card looks like this:

F:/Music/Users/Joe/Desktop/Joe Music/Artist1

Is there a way to to have the previous layout still preserved?

It's up to your sync settings: storage folder setting & music files template. You might have "preserve folders and filenames" option ticked this time.

You are right, I do, but I also had that ticked before.  The other option is to generate a new folder structure using tags which I do not want.

I had an issue similar to this recently, but haven't been able to follow up on Steven's request for more info yet. Here is his comment, if you want to see if any of it applies to your situation:

This does not seem related to my issue.

What version of MB did you run when you got that result?

Another possibility is that the songs you synced this time had completely different folder structure while your previously synced songs shared the same path just before artist name folder.

The before and after are from the exact same folder.  The music folder is in the same position it has always been.

I just tried 3.2.6827 and it only preserved the last 2 parent folders like the bug report thread says. I think that version was released before Steven made the change.
