So i download a flac song.
I play it in musicbee out of my download folder, theres a picture, its artist name album etc is all perfect its all fine.

I move the file to another folder...... it all goes. blank image. nothing.

I have tried rescanning library etc. downloads folder is not even a part of my library.

why does musicbee decide to no longer give metadata if its not in downloads folder???

also right click > autotag by track has never worked for me. i click proceed on the identify and update tags and it usually just instantly closes the dialogue. this is just how thats always been idk if thats related.

You said you played it from your download folder. Was that through Windows Explorer? Was the track actually added to your library? How did you move it?

Auto-tag by track usually runs as a background task, if I understand what you're doing correctly. Do you see the progress shown in the status bar, when that happens? A screenshot might help.
