Question regarding FLAC Files and MetaData

 I have come across some corrupted FLAC files in my collection. I have had to re-rip the entire album. I am suspecting the albums were corrupted by a player I was testing a while back.

I have decided to protect my albums with PAR files.


Which leads me to my question.

Does helium store information in the FLAC files such as last played or similar within the file tag or in an alternate data stream (which is an NTFS thing)

 

The reason I ask is that checking the files with QuickPar or MultiPar will show that the files have changed if Helium is writing to the files.

(I am aware that if I make changes to the files tags  I will have to recreate the par sets)


Thanks for any information.

Hi Patrick,


Helium does not store this information on tags.

Last played is stored in the database and similar is calculated based on data in your database.

Excellent!  Thank you for that info.
I will be making parity files for every album on the off chance something becomes corrupt;  and I don't catch it during my weekly backups.
