Having my collection in one place on C

I am using drive T: (USB drive) to transfer files to my "party laptop". It has only one drive C:.

I already knew hot to get this done. Well. The process is so convoluted that I don't know AGAIN.

I import, export playlists, do more things. Still, on my laptop, in the "Collection" the tracks are still on T!

I need them on C:. This is easily the worst part of Rekordbox, please help.

The process isn't convoluted ... but how you did it may have been more difficult than necessary.

As everything is now (hopefully) in the same folder structure on the C: drive as it was on the T: drive, just at a different parent path, follow the instructions in my video here to perform a batch-relocation.

This doesn't make sense at all. I don't want to change folder names or relocate.

I want to add a folder with files from drive T: to my collection on drive C:.

What you are showing in the video has nothing to do with that, why all these complexity? Is there a normal, intuitive way of managing files in Rekordbox?

What I see in the video is the opposite of that. It's cool you know these technicalities, but I don't want to relocate. I want to add files to collection from an external drive. This should be one of the most easy and intuitive things to do.

Simple instructions please, thank you.

If you move the files from T: to C:, you are changing where rekordbox thinks they are.

If you import a song from T:\Music\song.mp3 and add it to your rekordbox collection, rekordbox will always look for it at T:\Music\song.mp3.

Should you want to then move it to the C drive and say, for example, it would live at C:\Users\Jakub\Music\song.mp3, and you want rekordbox to read from that file, you need to tell rekordbox to relocate it. Since the only "change" is from T:\ to C:\Users\Jakub (the rest of the path remains the same), you are able to batch relocate all the files using the process noted above.
