Description of Issue

I only have 4 albums by Adele on the NAS but once the full NAS was imported I had 663 albums imported under the ‘Adele’ artist name despite the artists were The Who, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd or whoever.
The remaining albums were imported correctly including some by The Who, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd or whoever.
The NAS directory is extremely simple: Folder ‘Artist name’ > subfolders ‘Artist album’.
Each ‘Artist album’ contains the audio files in either mp3, flac, wav files and .jpg of CD cover.

I’ve found out how to re-edit an album, one by one. But I don’t want to do it for 663 albums one at a time.

I’m currently in a 14-day trial period of Roon. This is a major issue for me to not using Roon despite its superiority to other players I’ve tried.

Can you help?
