I bought a new laptop. On my old laptop I used an external hard drive. On my new laptop I am keeping all of my music on my internal hard drive.
I use iTunes as my main music organizing and music storage tool. I also let iTunes keep the music folder organized. Therefor every file is buried in a folder per album and artist within the iTunes music folder.
I successfully moved my iTunes library & music to my new laptop internal hard drive. All is working.
I successfully relocated my Traktor library and it had no problem relocating the music in the new location by being able to simply point Traktor to my iTunes music folder. Traktor would then dig deep into that folder and into all folders contained within, and Traktor relocated all of my songs.
Rekordbox however, needs me to point every single song directly to the file. With 5,000 songs that is impossible.
Is there an easy way to tell rekordbox all of my songs are in this new location without reimporting and analyzing again while losing all my work? The folder structure within my iTunes music folder is still the same.
If this is not possible, it needs to be in a future update. People need to be able to easily move their collection to new locations.
Also rekordbox should work more like iTunes in a way that I can open my collection on any computer. I can easily firewire connect my laptop to my desktop, set it to target disk mode, and work on my iTunes and Traktor collections with ease on my desktop. Rekodbox however, I can not.
