    Maintain library won't change the path, you can use the tools tab of Maintain library to change the old path to the new path http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...ntenance_tools

    The media files are in the same place. Only the database moved. This is going to change the paths that it looks to for the thumbnails and posters? And, as an FYI, the old path is gone, for obvious reasons. Is it still going to change the paths?

    There's a move database feature in Mezzmo which I believe changes the pointer information in the database for the artwork and moves the files but I believe this only works if you have things in the original location and then use the feature to move the database and the artwork. Peter can confirm. I don't think you can run with the database in one location and the artwork in another. I believe Mezzmo expects the artwork to be in a folder called artwork (with subfolders for the various artwork types) relative to the database location. I believe the feature Peter pointed to above is for moving your video files to different paths not artwork. That's how I have always used it.

    The original database location is gone. That's why I had to restore from a backup.

    The link Peter gave may work against the artwork pointers in the Mezzmo database. I just looked in the database schema and it's pretty straightforward. I know it works against the audio / video location field in the database. Artwork is just another field.. I've never tried it against artwork but it is simply an SQL update query. Since you have a backup it might be worth a try.

    Doesn't seem to have worked. So I am starting the process of downloading all of the artwork....

    I checked in the code and the Maintenance tools path change does not modify the path in the poster or backdrop tables. These paths are updated when changing the path of the database when you move it using the options in Mezzmo so if you move the database to the old path by changing the path to the database in options then move it back this should update the path to the posters and backdrops

    I would have to add a hard drive to create the old path. Seems like it is going to be easier to re-download all of the artwork, which I have already started. I'd recommend making paths relative rather than explicit in a future update to obviate the need for that; especially in the event of a total hardware failure like I had.

    One thing you can do is copy the old images back over top of the newly discovered images, if you like any of the old images better. As long as the file names are the same, which they generally will be, that can help getting you back close to where you were.

    Another way to update the path is to use SQLiteSpy https://www.yunqa.de/delphi/products/sqlitespy/index or another sqlite tool and run a query over the paths to update them.
