Add/Rescan issue

Post by Bluemoon.Bear »

using the beta this morning, if i try to move files and then rescan for the monkey to find the new locations and and any changes made, it keeps the old listing as well. so i must remove the files from the database before i scan for their new locations.

and to be quite honest, there is a lot of jumbled info i have to remove when trying to add newly added .mp3s i don't even know how to define how or why it happens.

1. It's recommended to use MediaMonkey to move/rename files instead.

2. If you don't want to use MediaMonkey to move/rename files, it's recommended to use Folder Monitoring and have MediaMonkey running while making the changes outside of MediaMonkey.

3. If you don't want to do that either, you can find moved/renamed files afterwards in the Dead Links node. Select the files and use Locate Moved/Missing Files to re-locate them (do this before scanning).

4. If you don't want to do that either you can just remove the Dead Links and rescan (this does remove the files from any Playlist they're on).
