Thread: New File Source

  1. #1

    Default New File Source

    I purchased a second NAS device exclusively for media files. All files on NAS 1 were copied to NAS 2, but Mezzmo is still pointed to NAS 1. How can I [B][/easilyB] reconfigure my database to point to NAS 2 without editing each file property?

    If you kept the same folder structure and thus only the drive letter changed, you could manually edit the database using a tool like SQLite Browser and run an SQL statement to change the drive letter. I think that's the only way to do it.

    Of course an easier way is to simply delete those folders from within Mezzmo and then re-add them from your new drive.

    It's one folder. All files are UNC mapped to an IP address (e.g. \\192.168.1.10\volume_1\media). I could flip IP addresses but don't want to confuse network routing (ARP, etc.).

    I'd just recommend to delete that folder from Mezzmo and re-add it using the new location. It shouldn't take too long to re-add the files and that's the safest and easiest way.

    Dennis,

    Is there a way to preserve playlists while moving to the new storage array? If not, can I export each playlist, edit location and import into Mezzmo? It will take much time to rebuild the playlist structure if I have to delete them. If the db is SQL, I'm ok with editing it.

    There's no automatic way to do this, but the database is SQLite, so it's easy to change it manually (if you know what you are doing of course).
