    Default Maintain Library - File or Folder level?

    Hi There

    Is there a way to do library maintenance on just a specific sub-directory (or better yet file)?

    Sometimes I make changes in a specific folder and want to update the information for the files in that file, but there only seems to be the option to Maintain The entire Library?

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    The Maintain Playlist still seems to go through the entire library!

    Right-click on the playlist or folder in the tree in Mezzmo and click Maintain Playlist.

    Hi Paul

    I tried that... See attachment.

    I used a folder with 5 files in it (Video). If you looks at the Status Tab while this is running it is doing more than just the Playlist Already processed 178 files and only 8% done.

    Hi Mark,

    When you try to maintain a folder (as distinct from a playlist), Mezzmo always starts at the root folder that you added into Mezzmo (and not the sub-folder that you clicked on). So it is not maintaining your complete Mezzmo library, but all the files/sub-folders in the folder. We'll look at improving this so you can select sub-folders.

    Hi Paul

    I suppose that does make sense, though a bit unfortunate... Not usually an issue, just when you are making a small change and would like to see the effect ASAP.

    Will look forward to the improvement though.
