After a reinstall on my Mac

I had to reinstall everything on my mac, I took a backup of the rekordbox database.

I have thousands of songs, and a lot of them I had to adjust the beatgrid, after the reinstall on my mac I installed rekordbox, added the database I had backed up, and all my songs was there..... BUT.... I had to reanalyze everything and go through every song once again, and adjust the beatgrid where needed..

WHY??? What did I do wrong, I really dont want to do this again if I need to reinstall my mac... Isn't taking a database backup enough, is there more I must do??

Hope for a answer here..

probably not, I would, to play it safe, copy the entire Pioneer folder and paste it to the new reinstall. It's located

/Users/username/Library/Pioneer

I just confirmed and you are correct, just doing a "backup" from RB does not bring over the analyzation and beat info it looks like, so the best way is still to make a copy of the Pioneer folder in the above path

I'll talk to the engineers about this; there is a separate analysis file created for each track, it's stored in the "USBANLZ" folder under the Pioneer folder in your library.  Copying these would certainly retain the waveforms, but I'm not sure why that wasn't contained within the backup.
