copy db, switch drive and location

Post by SelArom »

I've successfully used the script to move my MM database to another machine or upgrade to a larger drive, however now I want to move my music from 1 drive to another but it won't have the same exact folder structure. currently everything is in F:\ the root, but I want to move it to my music, which is c:\users\whatever\my music will this script still work? I don't remember if it gives you that optino to move the folder.

if not do I have any options? thanks!

Just use MM to move the tracks with Tools > Auto-organize

damn thanks for the reply, and i thought this would work, but I have my compilation collections under main folders, such as

- Compilation A
- - - Compilation A Vol 1
- - - Compilation A Vol 2
- Compilation B
- - - Compilation B Vol 1
- - - Compilation B vol 2

and so on. the tool you mentioned will just put them all in the root by the album since there isn't any metadata for the overal compilation name. I need to maintain this structure but I don't want to lose my play counts etc...

any other ideas? is there no way to use the migration script for this?

Code: Select all

c:\users\whatever\my music\<Path>
