Delete other files and playlists from the device

Post by FuzzyWereBeast » Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:43 am

I am fairly new to MediaMonkey and like what I see. Unfortunately, I am having an issue syncing.

My library is significantly larger than the space available on my phone. What I would like to do is select specific playlists or audiobooks from the "Auto-Sync (-->Device) menu and have them loaded to my phone. If these selections change, I would like MediaMonkey to automatically load the new selections to my phone and remove the items that are no longer selected.

I have checked "Delete other files and playlists from the device:" with "Unselected Library files" chosen. The new items get pushed to my phone. However, the ones that are no longer selected are not removed. I have also tried with "All Other Media Files" selected. This only gives me the option to remove a video that I put in the folder on my phone for testing. I don't have the option to remove the "extra" items that are no longer selected.

Are these expectations correct or am I missing something?
  • "Unselected Library files" would keep the phone mirrored to the selections in MediaMonkey.
  • "All other Media Files" would remove anything that isn't in my MediaMonkey library.
Phone and MediaMonkey info
Phone: Google Pixel running Android 9

Current version is 4.1.21: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... =8811&sd=d and I would suggest it as many sync issues have been fixed.

Are you sure the files aren't selected through another selection in the Device Profile? If they are in any selection they'll remain synced.


Note, you need to set it to All Media Files to have MediaMonkey remove files no longer in it's (MMW) Library.

Updating seems to have fixed it. This is one of the few things that was preventing me from purchasing Gold. I'm not sure why I was told the Version 4.1.15.1830 has was the most up to date when I had it check for updates.

"Unselected Library files" now mirrors the selections in MediaMonkey while leaving files that are NOT in the MediaMonkey library alone... as expected.
"All other Media Files" removes EVERYTHING that isn't in the selections made within MediaMonkey...also as expected.

Thanks for your help!

Not all updates are pushed out that way. The linked topic does post each available update.
