How to do a clean install / clear sync settings

If MediaMonkey for Android (MMA) needs to be completely re-installed from scratch (e.g. due to corruption on an SD card), you can do so as follows:

  1. Uninstall MMA (preferable) OR delete the application data, via Settings > Application Manager > MediaMonkey > Clear data.
  2. Run a file manager and delete the /MediaMonkey directory from both the internal memory and SD Card
  3. If you’re having sync issues perform the following additional steps:
    1. On your Android device, run a file Manager and delete all Media (e.g. from /Music) and Playlists (e.g. from /Playlists) from the device
    2. In MediaMonkey for Windows, delete the Sync profile(s) associated with your Android device by navigating to Devices & Services in the tree, tapping ‘Show all’ devices, and tapping the ‘⋮’ and ‘Delete’ for any device profiles associated with the problematic Android device (a new sync profile will be created next time you sync)
  4. Re-install MediaMonkey for Android and run it once before attempting any Sync operation

    Note: If you delete the /MediaMonkey directory on the Android device (step 2) but don’t delete the corresponding device sync profiles in MediaMonkey for Windows (step 3) then you’ll end up with duplicate sync profiles.
