Hi,

I've got a pretty massive music library and I decided I'd be interested in using Replay gain. Thing is I never ripped my music with the track volume entry which means I'd have to scan my whole library, which is fine with me. Thing is, I sometimes got the feeling that when modifying a track name, or album title, or artist name, it would rewrite the file instead of modifying the info which caused fragmentation. So, my question is how does foobar handle this stuff, does it only add it or does it erase and recopy/rewrite the file on the hard drive ? I wouldn't want my whole library fragmented because I added replaygain values..

My library is in flac if that makes a difference

thanks

Checking is simple: WriteFile function returns error or writes less bytes than it should. If this happens the temp file creation is aborted, the file is removed and the user is shown an error message that tagging failed.
Fragmentation doesn't of course cause playback to slow down enough to cause glitches. But it does affect transcoding and replaygain scanning speeds.
