I know that Importing Music into your Roon organized folder results in Roon possibly rearranging the Folder / File structure
Assuming that the User has a typical Artist / Album / Track folder structure in their “Watched” folder…does the Roon Organized folder offer any performance or other advantages over just using Watched folders??

Other than making your files/directory names pretty, there are no advantages.
E.g. Does updating cover art in the app apply that cover art to a managed folder? I was thinking about how to best prevent EVER having to repeat any manual edits like wrong album or artwork.
We don’t currently re-tag files in organized folders. It’s something we’ve occasionally considered, but we repeatedly shy away, because it’s a risky feature.
An example: assume that we get an identification wrong and we re-tag your files. Now we’ve put your files in an unrecognizeable directory AND ruined the original tags and artwork. It’s really hard to “un-do” that operation. You’ll be lucky if you can ever properly locate the files again.
From my perspective as a user, I prefer the predictability of the “no-touch” watched folder. If I want clean, tagged files for my phone or the car or whatever, I’m happy to export the subset that I need.
