Use the Music > Files to Edit > Dead Links node to identify the files and then you can use File > Create Reports if you want to export it.

New Feature: Export List of Missing Files to TXT, CSV

by dennisparrott » Wed May 01, 2019 1:37 pm

I did a drag-and-drop operation where I selected some entries on a playlist and then drug them into a File Explorer window (using Win10 Home). The files got MOVED, not COPIED!!

I did not realize that the files were moved until I tried adding a file new files to the library and did a rescan of a particular folder. I got 22 files missing! Ouch.

I did a rescan of the entire library (it is BIG, 170K entries) and found 182 missing files. HUGE ouch.

What I want on the display of that list of missing files is a way to save that information as TXT or CSV (really tab separated) so that I can create something I can print and go repair the damage I created...

BTW - I tried to simply select that info in the missing files display window and you can't select all of them to simply copy & paste them into a text file.
