After transferring library, the "added" date is lost

Post by David8791 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 4:24 pm

I have been using Media Monkey for about 2 years. I use the "added" column frequently. I recently built a new computer and installed MM on it. When I transferred my library, the "added" column only shows the current date. I have tried all reasonable options when re-scanning the files into the new computer, but cannot get my original "added" date. Is this information retained (as a tag?) with the song data or is it just a function of the program? Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated!

Is the old computer still intact? You could copy the database from the old computer to the new build so you keep all the original added dates then used ZvezdanD's Update Location of Files in Database script to update the database with the new file locations.

Information on the database location can be found here:
