I'd like to let you know about an error in the compiled Windows version.
dir /b/s *.mp3 > listfile
at the Windows cmd prompt (as you suggest when using the -f option on tagbkup.exe) produces a DOS-formatted text file. But if I try to feed this to tagbkup.exe, it chokes and only restores or backs-up 0 or 1 file. The reason appears to be that it is expecting a Unix-formatted text file. If I run dos2unix on the text file first, then feed it to tagbkup.exe, everything works as expected.
There is a likewise problem when trying to bypass creating a file and piping the directory list directly to tagbkup.exe, i.e.
dir /b/s *.mp3 | tagbkup.exe -r backupfolder
So, I suggest you modify the Windows executable so that it expects DOS-formatted text input.
Also, one other thing: it would be super nice if you make it clear on your website that tagbkup.exe should be run from the command line. I'm a n00b, and when I heard the tagbkup.sh had been compiled in an executable, I figured I could just run it by double-clicking on it. Took my 20 minutes to figure out.
Thanks for this fantastic piece of software.
By the way, for anyone who doesn't know, you need cygwin (or something similar) to run the command dos2unix. There's must be a version for the DOS cmd prompt, but I don't know it. I happened to have cygwin because I tried to run tagbkup.sh on it, with no luck, before moving onto the windows compiled version.

Thanks for letting me know. I will look into it. I have been using it with the cygwin version so I would not have noticed this.
The tagbkup.sh should work. That is what I use regularly. Let me know what the problem is with tagbkup.sh under cygwin.

I have fixed the problem. Try downloading the new version (1.26)
