Clip Zip File Structure?

Hi,

 

Anyone found what the most efficient file structure is for the Clip Zip?

 

On the Clip+ I found If I had the folder structure set to Root/Music/Artist/Album/Song.mp3 that it was terribly slow at refreshing the media.

 

What's the best way people have found?

 

Thanks

Folder/files hierarchy has nothing to do with refresh times. ID3 tags (and what's in them) is causes slowdowns in database refreshing.

 

Your suggested folder structure is perfect.

Actually, don't I recall reading that complex file structure can affect refresh time?  (Although, the file structure above does not seem complex, and is fairly typical.)  Or does it only affect storage capacity?

What it affects is the useful database capacity.
