I replaced my failing desktop data drive. Never did think to check out how Media Monkey worked before doing so. I rescanned one large 10GB folder of music only to discover that it populated in MM as duplicates. The music from my old Drive E: was displayed in "greyed out" subdued display. It was obvious what happened since the two drives had different names.
If I had known at the start that the database tracks items by device ID, I might have stopped before I got this far.
I want keep my ratings and play history. So how do I (1) erase the effect of this last scan (essentially eliminate the duplicate records) and (2) Tell MM that the music is now located on this new device ID?
I am operating on the free version of Media Monkey. Is this a problem? I will need to decide whether I want keep the pay to keep the ratings or just upgrade.
Get answers about using the current release of MediaMonkey for Windows.

Remove files from the new scan (the working copies) and update the driveID after that: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... driveID.29
