    If really paranoid, make a duplicate copy of the music directory on different media before running the batch. You should be keeping duplicate copies anyway. Hey, storage is very cheap these days, and s*&^ happens.

    Have you downloaded and installed the Replay Gain R5 utility codec? There is no compression option with this utility codec as it just writes the replay gain tags.

    Codec Central under utility codecs:
    https://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm

    With this you can load up all your files, do a batch conversion and "convert to" the ReplayGain utility codec. This will add ReplayGain tags. I would use the option to add both track and album tags.

    Thank you very much.

    Before I knew about the "ReplayGain Utility Codec", I was na´ve enough to batch convert my existing 21000 FLAC Level 8 Compression library by setting "no compression", in believing that it would just add the tags. Nah! It reconverted all my FLACs with 0 compression so it expanded the storage required. 21 hours.

    Then, you made me aware of the aforementioned utility codec so I rebatched everything back to Level 8 compression. 23 hours...

    Hope no-one else will do the same mistake than me...
