    No, that isn't the string I want. I need the filename to be track number - artist - title.flac for compilations. Non compilatons should be track - title.flac

    That is what used to work on the string I have posted.

    I think the mask is correct - it shows correctly in the example. But, as you can see from the filename column in the previous post (as well as the pictures above), it isn't actually processing it correctly.
    Something is odd. It is certainly not a general problem with dbpa, as it's not affecting me or users I know, and I suspect there would be hundreds of posts if this was widespread. (You're the first one I've seen reporting this issue.). But obviously, something is wrong in the way dbpa is interacting with your system. But I'm out of ideas to debug. If it was me, I'd uninstall dbpa completely, then reinstall it and see if that solves the problem. See this info for true "clean" uninstall:

    this produces his desired outcome for me. (but very strange that his system is instead creating a "directory" with the file name info and then within that directory creating a file called "flac" that is not an actual flac file. It may have something to do with his CD ripper settings, but can't imagine what it would be. Maybe the setting related to creating a temp file (can't recall what that option is, and can't check at the moment as don't have drive connected).

    Re: Dynamic Naming Problems in 17.3

    I totally uninstalled DBPoweramp per the instructions, removed registry, etc. and reinstalled. Still, the problem remained.

    I went through Dat Ei mask character by character, and I found one character difference. I copied his, and it works. I have no idea what the original problem was, as I've used that mask for years, but it is now resolved.

    Thank you all for helping.

    Re: Dynamic Naming Problems in 17.3

    Thought I would jump in here instead of creating a new thread - I'm having exactly the same issue with bad file naming and a different directory for each ripped track. I've been using the same dynamic naming string on version 15.x and 16.x. I decided to upgrade to 17.3, which caused the exact same issue which I hadn't ever seen before.
    My dynamic naming string is:
    [IFCOMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],Various Artists[]\[[year]] [album]\[IFMULTI] Disc [disc] [][track] [artist] [title][][IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[[year]] [album]\[IFMULTI] Disc [disc] [][track] [title][]
    Which looks fine when displayed in the example:
    Album Artist\[2011 08 12] Album Title\05 Title
    But in reality when run comes out as (for example):
    \ Uprise\13 Nemesea If You Could [Acoustic Version][]Nemesea\ Uprise\13 If You Could [Acoustic Version][].mp3
    Turns out while I was checking data to post this reply, the problem was that the logic didn't account for the variable "year" being empty.
    I fixed that and it worked perfectly. Glad this post was here because it made me check exactly what I was doing!
