    Please see screenshot:

    If someone might be able to copy&paste it below I would be extremely grateful (or PM me - as this thread had hopped around quite a bit). I scanned through the pages of this thread but could not locate it (though it will be here somewhere).
    Is this it here, in post no. 421?: Re: Ripping Level Question (help?)

    Set where exactly, as the context does not make any sense e.g. sample rate set to +6?

    It was here (please see screenshot); although it now no longer says '+6':

    Yes, that's it; cheers.

    I lost my Word doc. However, I did not lose anything from my foobar downloads/themes folder.

    That is referring to Sample Offset and not Sample Rate, two different things entirely.

    My bad, it was a typo.

    It is a good idea to back up your files to a drive external to your pc.

    Garym,

    Yes, indeed. I thought I had, but I must have only saved the foobar and dBpa installers.

    Garym,

    All backed-up across 4 x external-HDs now!

    I spent 2 and a half hours ripping a Ralph Vaughn Williams classical CD yesterday. It was full from top to bottom with the most complex titles you ever saw. The tagging was a nightmare. After I had finished, I opened up Foobar and noticed it was appearing TWICE? Then I realized, with a sickly feeling, I had already ripped this very CD a few months ago!

    Cheers,

    Paul

    The worst one is when you accidentally hit 'refresh', instead of 'rip', within 'dBpa'; and watch as all your good tagging work disappears!

    Better to accidentally rip twice than to discover (as I have a number of times) that you have more than one copy of the same CD. Similar issue is when someone takes CD and reissues it with different title. You think it is something new, but you already have the identical tracks, but the album name is different.

    OK, cheers Schmidj.
