Re: Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

[quote uote="Lowlander"]For starters it would depend on your collection size and your bandwidth restrictions (may be slow or capped). Another concern for some would be privacy. In itself a Cloud backup should be more reliable than a single drive backup as Cloud services are build to cope with drive ...

Re: Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

I use Karen's Replicator as software and backup to an external drive that is stored off-site. As it backs up the files in the same structure/filename any restoration would be easy as the files are the same. Why would this be better than, say, OneDrive? It's office site (cloud) consistently updates,...

Thanks very much :) I'll give that a go. Lowlander, may I ask what process you have chosen to back up your music files? Have you every really used a good recovery program for anything? Best!

Re: Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

If filenames changed it will likely fail to find the correct files. If you do use it make sure you verify each match and only leave the correct ones selected. You can also copy tags from old (db) to new (recovered) files using: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13000&hilit=advanc...

Re: Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

Locate Moved/Missing is the only build in method and depends on not too many things having changed. You'll need to make sure the matches it makes (if any) are correct. Lowlander, Thanks for the feedback. I'll try the Moved/Missing feature. What do you mean by "not too many things have changed"? Wha...

Re: Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

Hopefully one of the great minds will chime in with a way simple answer but .. as I see it you have kind of a catch-22. You want to keep the "library" info in MMW but change the location of the files as you download them .. is that right? First .. if you mean recovery sw for recovering data from a ...

Dear Gurus: HELP w/ deleted & recovered music library :(

Dear All...Spent several days going through my library of music: deleted songs I didn't like, updated album art, corrected file path, file name, details, moved them to proper albums and just about everything involved in having a very well-managed collection. THEN, thinking I was deleting music files...

Re: Can I Get Your Help With Freezing And "Update & Next Son

Cowboy, In order...1) Thanks for the insight of that. I don;t know how to "speed up MM.exe" but I can sure look at CPU stuff. I'm wondering. If I'm down to 85 GB of memory (out of a total 500 GB), would that make any difference? 2) I don't know what "cross link in MM code for link arrow to playlist"...

Re: Can I Get Your Help With Freezing And "Update & Next Son

Hi MMfrLife, I'll take your entries one at a time. 1) I'll simplify my description of the pattern of when it freezes; when I click on a song, rather than when it plays. 2) If it is MM, rather than my system environment, what do you recommend? I am using the latest version of MM. 3) Under what condit...

Can I Get Your Help With Freezing And "Update & Next Song"?

Hi Everybody, In good faith, I'll start of by telling our helpful moderators that I did, indeed, peruse the forums on my first issue before adding a new topic. Here's the two-headed snake I'm dealing with. First, MM is freezing about 25 minutes. Much of what I'm doing in that time is cleaning on a t...

A reconsideration of being able to create new "types"

I understand the use of genre to place filters on a collection, but it seems to create more work than it would be to have the option of creating new types. Here's an example. On my computer, I have three subfiles under Music: Music, AudioBook, and Me. The problem here with the final category is that...

Re: Fusion v1.0 (04/21/2012)

This skin is absolutely fantastic. Most dark skins are too dark; depressing, hard to read. This creates "night" while excellent on visibility, clarity, and aesthetic.

How do I Add A New "Type"?

Deal All,

Under "File Properties" there is a dropdown box for "Type". I'd like to add a subcategory of music here. How do I go about adding one? I have added the new category to my media tree but it doesn't show up in "Type". How do I go about adding it here, as well?

Thanks,

- NR
