Consolidating MediaMonkey library

Postby mojoman » Thu Dec 11, 2008 5:21 pm

Hello everybody,

I'm new to mediamonkey and i would like to know if it's possible to copy all the music files into one specified folder with mediamonkey, like the iTunes "Consolidate the Library" option.

Also, is it possible to automatically copy files into this specified folder when adding them to the library, instead of linking to the file without moving it ?

Finally, is it possible to stop mediamonkey from duplicating files when scanning a folder, when there is a playlist in the folder ? (you know, the famous 00-... file when you "legally" download an album)

1) Tools > Auto-Organize Files can move files into a user defined directory structure (manually)

2) Tools > Options > Auto-Organize can automatically move files to a user defined structure

3) Upgrade to the latest version of MediaMonkey 3.0.6 as this shouldn't happen. Alternatively if you don't need the playlists deselect M3U (and other applicable playlist formats) in the Add/Rescan Tracks to Library dialog.
