Sync my folders

Post by wixy59 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 6:36 pm

I am new to MM. I have a fairly large music collection on my PC (Windows 10) which I back up to OneDrive. I have been moving the music to 2 android phones.

I can't seem to get Sync to work as I would like. I started the AutoSync but MM insists on putting the music into its own folder structure. I have a working folder structure that I would prefer to maintain. Most of my folders are in Artist/Album/Song structure but I have a collection of songs are in a catchall folder called Misc which are all one-offs. When I initiated AutoSync, each one of those songs was ending up in a folder by itself. Plus that many songs were tagged as "Unable to Sync" Can I use MM to sync folders exactly as they already exist? If so how?

You set how files are stored on the device in the Device Profile (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync): https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device using Masks: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ormats/4.0

Yes, I understand masks.
I am assuming that means I can't just sync my current folder structure.

You have the <Path>, <Folder> and <Filename> Masks to recreate the Path used on your PC.
