Im planning on moving mezzmo to another machine. Its likely I will need to change location of the some of the source folder.
Most of my TV files are for example in a folder D:\TV.

I figured I can possibly make this simpler if I refactor the folders before I move over. So D:\TV for example will become something like F:\TV

Whats the easiest way to move these to another folder without losing any of the meta data - last watched, play count etc ? Or cant I do this ?

Following that, whats the easiest way to copy the database to the new machine ?

Needless to say id like to retain all my playlists :)


Thanks in advance.

Having done another search I think I figured this out.. The tools option in the Maintain Library dialog ! :)

At least - thats how I can move stuff..so partly.

Yes this is correct, make a backup of the database in Options in Mezzmo then copy the backup to the other machine. Then use the maintenance tools to change the paths D:\TV to F:\TV.
