MediaMonkey settings / database are reset / lost
Updated by Pavle Lacarac on Oct 18, 2017

MediaMonkey stores its settings (assuming it's not run in 'portable mode') in the Windows registry and in .ini files (see MediaMonkey settings ).

Some users have reported occasionally losing their settings or the database upon restarting MediaMonkey. This can occur if registry and system cleaner apps such as TuneUp, CCleaner, Advanced System Care, or Webroot delete portions of the registry or files that store MediaMonkey settings & database.

If this has happened to you, you can either:

  1. Exclude MediaMonkey folders and registry from cleaning
  2. Install MediaMonkey in 'portable mode' which doesn't store any configuration data to the system registry

For example, Webroot may delete the database and config files in ../appdata/roaming/mediamonkey . To stop it, in Webroot go into Advanced Settings then click on System Optimizer on the left side of the page. Then scroll down until you see "Media Monkey - Recent Playlist and User Preferences" and uncheck it.
