It depends on the Mask you use in Tools > Auto-Organize FIles as to how files will be organized and it will only organize selected files. Auto-Organize Files will show the results before you apply them.

If you used Tools > Options > Auto-Organize instead it will again use the Mask you setup and apply to all files that match the Criteria. It will run whenever files are edited or added.

I can't attest to Artwork (this is one of the reasons I use embedded Artwork), but you can simply run Auto-Organize Files again with the correct Mask to fix things.

It creates the folder/filenames when using Auto-Organize Files: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... enames/4.0

Yes, that is what Auto-Organize Files does. You just need to set a Mask that works for you. Did you read the links?

An example:
C:\Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Track#>. <Artist> - <Title>
