    Default Date added and playcount

    sometimes you need to reset the database.

    This information is then gone.

    Please add a feature, either on by default or optional to the user to store this information so it remains even after reset!

    Because right now after a reset all information is back to 0 and when you repopulate the database movies-music-photos are added with the current
    time stamp which isn't correct of course you added everything before already sometimes even years!

    So to get recently added and recently played properly..

    a few options:
    - Store mezzmo specific information linked to specific movies-music-photos in the .nfo / EXIF, embedded
    - in every directory or next to every file create a file like: FILENAME-mezzmodata.nfo

    (I would prefer the latter so next to every file an additional mezzmo specific nfo file is created)

    in this file you store when you added this file to mezzmo
    in this file you store how often you played-watched-listened this file
    in this file you store the most recent data when it has been accessed-played-watched
    in this file you store the timestamp (for instance music-movies) where the watcher was when he stopped the playback.


    And yes I know I asked you this already 2 or 3 years ago Just a kind reminder..

    I just found that Peter thanks, but going through my whole library doing this would
    1) take ages
    2) should be automated nonetheless
    or at least have it optionally automated in the "tools - options - general" so a user can switch it on/off to export this kind of information to the XML each time a file is being added/changed/played and also automatically read by Mezzmo in case of a reset, new installation, moving installation to another disk..
