    Lightbulb Tutorial: How to update your Mezzmo library when you move your media files

    It is quite common that you move your media files from time-to-time. For example, you may have added a new NAS drive to your home network and want to re-locate your files onto this new NAS drive.

    If you have moved your media files from one location to another location, then you change the paths for these media files in your Mezzmo library. This lets you keep all the metadata for those files without having to remove the files from Mezzmo and re-add them back into Mezzmo.

    1. After you have moved your media files to their new location, run Mezzmo.
    2. Go to the Maintain Library dialog and click the Tools tab.


    3. Enter the original location of the media files into Original path.
    4. Enter the new location of teh media files into New path.
    5. Click Change Paths and wait until Mezzmo has completed changing all related files in your Mezzmo library.
    6. After it has completed, right-click on a media file in Mezzmo and click Properties to display the Properties dialog. Check that the location of the file is correct. If not, then go back to the Maintain Library dialog and run Change Paths again with the corrected location.

    Note: Mezzmo changes the path in your Mezzmo library for all related media files, subtitle files, linked playlists and folders.

    Note: If you wish to move your Mezzmo database files to another drive/folder, then see this FAQ: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...t-drive-folder

    Note: If you wish to move your transcoded files to another drive/folder, then use the Transcoding Settings dialog in Mezzmo to set the new transcoded folder location.
