Hi, I just started using beets and want to import my existing music collection, which is quite large.
My plan is to do two passes: first, import ‘quietly’ to let beets import all albums it can deal with, and skip problematic ones, and then second I will manually go over the skipped albums.
For the first pass, I ran
beet import -qil log.txt /my/audio/folder/, and that seemed to work fine: beets imported all it could and skipped problematic ones.
However, for the second pass I tried turning off the quiet flag, expecting beets to only try to import the previously skipped albums:
beet import -il log.txt /my/audio/folder/.
However, it just says
No files imported from /my/audio/folder, and skips over everything.
Based on the documentation of incremental_skip_later, my understanding is that beets should try to import the skipped albums, since the default value is no:
no, controlling whether skipped directories are recorded in the incremental list. When set to
yes, skipped directories will be recorded, and skipped later. When set to
no, skipped directories won’t be recorded, and beets will try to import them again later. Defaults to
Did I misunderstand something? Can someone help with how I should proceed?
Thanks in advance!
