how to retrieve a missing playlist?

Post by peppergomez » Sun Sep 23, 2018 3:53 pm

I launched MM today and noticed that a playlist I've been working on is no longer listed in the Playlists section. I certainly didn't delete it.

Are there any ways I can search for it or retrieve it, either from within MM or Windows?

Any ideas why it is longer there?

Playlists are stored in the database so unless you exported it you can't retrieve a Playlist that has been deleted in MediaMonkey. Maybe you moved it to a sub-node of another Playlist instead of deleting it.

Not in MediaMonkey. And in Windows only if you exported it, at which point it would be like any other files (likely .m3u extension).

Damn. I spent a lot of time working on it. I exported a much earlier version to my ipod, so I can retreive that.

There must be a bug of some sort in MM. The other day, the playlist was there. Today, it is not.

Haven't seen any other reports of Playlists disappearing. Common reasons would be that the user accidentally deleted or moved it or that an older copy of the database is being used (but you'd need to have made those in the first place).
