Tracks are being moved after being analysed

please enter your message to us here
When a track is being analyzed (when it is missing BMP or Color or Key), the file is being moved from its original location.
Normally, my iTunes library is there /FW 1T/iTunes Media/ and the music files are being stored in /FW 1T/iTunes Media/Music.
So, when a file is being updated, it is moved to /FW 1T/iTunes Media///

With Beatunes 2, when the songs where being analyzed they were not moved to a "new" destination.
Can you please correct this, because for now, I've stopped analyzing my iTunes Library right now

Best Regards


if you experienced a crash or other abnormal behavior, you might want to attach log files from /Users/singles8698/Library/Logs/beaTunes

    Here are all the logs.
    Just for your information, this happened only once. I've done more analyzing
    later in the day, and no more files where moved.

    Best regards,

    Hi Stephane,

    thanks for the logs. I couldn't find anything suspicious in them.

    beaTunes itself never changes the location of a file.. As a side-effect of changing song properties, iTunes may move a file. There is also an unlikely chance of jaudiotagger (the tag library used by beaTunes) to move a tag, but I haven't heard of any such case so far.

    Should this problem occur again, please let me know. For now there doesn't seem to be anything I can do.

    Have a great Sunday,

    Thanks for your feedback.
    Maybe an another track to follow, I don't know why, but some of the
    files in my drive were in read only mode. Since I've changed the files
    properties to RW everything is back to normal.

    Have a great sunday
