Right...When I first got rekordbox 12 months ago I bought a portable HDD drive to put all my tunes on instead of clogging up my laptop.
I created folders such as HOUSE / DRUM & BASS / BREAKS etc. and put my tunes in there. Then I realised that when you add them to rekordbox it creates a folder on my HDD called CONTENTS and all the tracks are also added to that.
Not wanting to duplicate my music I have now focused just on the CONTENTS folder.
Heres now the problem...Since rekordbox crashed and lost all my music, I have now added it back into my COLLECTION. It also comes up with a lot of (!) missing files. So I FILE / DISPLAY ALL MISSING FILES. Around 600 of them.
Now I'm painfully having to churn through them 1 by 1 going into CONTENTS / ARTIST / ALBUM / TRACK.
I've read somewhere that you can click on one track and rekordbox will AUTOFIND all the others but this dont work for me.
Example: I have tracks by an artist and these tracks are on different albums (5x different albums folders within the 1x artist folder). If I group highlight SELECT say 10 tracks by 1 artist in FIND ALL MISSING FILES then relocate to a track within one of the album files, it asks me if I want to select that 1 track to play when any of the 10 different tracks are selected. Obviously I dont wanna do that so how can Rekordbox autofind my tracks?
In the DISPLAY MISSING FILES screen I have looked at the LOCATION pane and the tracks say D:/CONTENTS / FAT BOY SLIM / GREATEST HITS / ROCKAFELLA SKANK for example. The track is still within this location when I relocate manually and the file/track name hasnt changed so what am I doing wrong?
Any help will be grateful!
