Clear Database not working

Post by Maka » Thu Jan 17, 2019 3:43 pm

Hi
I use MM 4.1.24.1882 and want to clear my database.
I choose YES and press enter, then nothing happens.

Hi,
Best way to clear MMW DB is to physically delete it.

Here are the default locations of main mediamonkey settings and library for Windows 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 / Vista:
C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\MM.DB

Hi,
If You clean Library, playlists are also cleaned as MMW will automatically remove library deleted tracks from playlists along with library clean. Same goes for any Sync profiles.

Configuration is in MediaMonkey.ini not in MM.DB

Any time you remove media files from the Library they are also removed from any Playlists in the Library they're associated with. They'd only re-appear on AutoPlaylists as those are Criteria based.

No, they're database only.
