Ooops! My bad, I must be tired. :roll:

I can now expand and select the folders on my F drive. No problem there. So my initial problem was of my own making.

But something is still strange.

I didn't properly look what I was doing and tried to expand folders under my user name in the dialog, not under the drive letter. And that doesn't work, as I initially described. I don't know why this behaves as it does, but it's not a problem for me as I can just select the folders I want from under the drive letter. Maybe this is caused by my slightly unusual windows setup where I have moved my user to a different drive (E:) from where windows is installed (C:).

Anyway, thanks for your quick reply.

Very strange, I have no problems selecting any folder I need scanned on a Portable Install. Can you type the Path and use Add to select it for scanning that way?

MM Portable directory dialog not working

Hi guys,

I'm new on this forum. So first of all... Hello all!

I have just installed MM as portable on Win 10 Pro and have a problem. I also have a non-portable installation of this version on the same computer and that does not have this problem.

My music library is organized as follows: F:\Music\Compressed\Pop + F:\Music\Compressed\Classic + F:\Music\Original\Pop + F:\Music\Original\Classic
Under the 4 Pop and Classic folders are subfolders for artist\album containing .flac files in the original tree and .mp3 files in the compressed tree

I only want to add the files under the F:\Music\Compressed directory to the library in the portable installation, which I will only use to sync files with my mobile phone.
The problem is that the add/rescan dialog in MM where I can select a directory to add only allows me to select the first folder under the root (F:\Music ). When I click the little > to expand the directory tree to select the Compressed folder, the > disappears from the screen and nothing happens. This happens both in the setup wizard and in File add/rescan menu. The non-portable installation behaves as expected and allows me to expand the F:\Music folder and select the \Compressed subfolder.

Any ideas?
