Old drive died, new drive, same letter, library

Post by James33 »

Hello, my old drive died, and I replaced it with my backup using the same letter and folder structure, but none of the files in the library play. How can I update this without deleting and redoing everything? I want to keep all of the library info that has been collected and everything.

Hi,
First DO NOT scan new drive into MediaMonkey, but instead do this:
1. Tools -> Options -> Library -> Media tree and enable entire Library.
2. Expand Entire Library -> Locations -> [DRIVE THAT YOU REPLACED] -> Select All tracks
3. Use File -> Locate moved Missing -> point to letter of your new drive (if possible navigate to folder where your files are to save on scanning time)
4. press OK and wait.
5. Result dialog should be clear and show what is relocated, not relocated, not found on new drive.

Let us know how it went.
Best regards,
