With iTunes I used to copy the itunes files to the backup drive, to back up all its internal settings. Where do I find the files to back up media-monkey's playlists? Ta

If you want to just back up playlists .. export them.
If you want to back up your database then look in the Addons forBackup 6.0. Here is a link to the forum section for Backup. It backs up the entire db with a restore script

Lowlander, why not just copy MM.DB? Restore by copy/paste.

on a related note to this question, what is the best strategy to sync playlists across multiple machines?

I have mediamonkey pointed at my OneDrive folder, so I have the same music and paths on all my machines, but I also have auto playlists and custom playlists to organize my music into crates (for djing)

since i spend a good part of my day on my work pc that's where I do the most organizing. I want to be able to pick up those playlists and changes automatically on my dj machine...

it seems my best bet is to keep my work pc as the master source, then periodically export my playlists to m3u and pull them into my dj machine...

which works, but it would be GREAT if the playlists could sync across the network and any changes made on one machine's list would instantly propagate to anothers...

if this isn't possible i'd sure appreciate it logged as a feature request, perhaps by offering the option to move playlists out of the db and into xml/m3u files that can be "watched" by mediamonkey. then I could just store them in my onedrive alongside my library.

thanks!

hi i'm new here, i have a problem to locate the MM database, I cant find it anywhere on my laptop. I have a lot of music (aprox. 1 and a half TB) and I want to make sure that all the organizing i'm making wont be lost if anything happens or if i want to migrate on a new computer
thank you :D

Database location: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... le/View/16

You may need to enable the showing of hidden files in Explorer to see the database file/location.
