The Tag Options syntax should be as follows

DateTag.yearOnly

I.e. period and not colon.

See the Tag options description link for more details.

Actually, it is DateTag.yearOnly.index. Apologies for the confusion. I have corrected my earlier post.

Thanks for clarifying. I'll give that a shot.

RE: troubleshooting incorrect date values problem
Well, it accepted the revised syntax, but scanning still results in hundreds of log errors in the following format:

"Warning: truncating incorrect value for DATE tag 2003-15-12 in file HiRes/Laurindo Almeida, Charlie Byrd - Tango/01 - Laurindo Almeida, Charlie Byrd - Orchids In The Moonlight.dsf."

The "tag options" field already had one entry when I made your suggested revisions, so as revised it reads as: "Album.sortTags={Album,Artist}, DateTag.yearOnly.index". Could that be part of the problem? Thanks.

RE: troubleshooting incorrect date values problem
Correction -- after restarting the NAS, I'm no longer getting the date-related errors. Thanks!

Last question: I still have about 25 albums that appear not to be tagged properly in any field, which account for ~90% of the remaining log errors. I'd like to correct those too (I assume manually), so I'd be grateful if you could advise on a program I can use to do that, and how I access the metadata on the Synology NAS to make those edits. Thanks again for all your assistance!!

On Windows, I use Mp3tag and it works well. On Mac, I have used Metadatics and on Linux I have used puddletag. Many other tagging programs are available. You can access your NAS files from the computer that is running the tagging program by using SMB/CIFS file sharing.
