I have a lot of hard work ahead

I've had the same database since 2014 (year not version) but its a complete mess  :bash:

I've decided after we come out of Beta testing with the next stable version that I'm going to start my database from Scratch again.

14,000 tracks in my music folders. I may be sometime In a darkened room with lots of Coffee  :hihi:

it was Marius saying test 2034 with anew database that made me decide to start from scratch again.

7 and a half years worth of work isn't something I'm giving up lightly

A Fresh rebuild after 7 years with 14-Thousand Tracks will be the best New Years Resolution Ever.

I had a Commodore 64 with Floppy drive I paid a friend of my Brothers £200 in 1989 for it.

Bloody good computers were C64's


So far 2.0.3.4 is performing as a good radio playout suite should over a week since I restarted my copy

Could you export everything from one database and then import it into another?

Even if you're adding/changing fields, couldn't you at least transfer the old field values that will remain the same into new fields?

I'm hoping for a database update file in the future instead as there are so many intro and other adjustments with cue points to redo :)

Even if there is a Database upgrade script  I still think I'm better off starting again.  :bash:

I've spent most of today sorting and filing songs in my database the "Delete from disk" feature from tracks manager has enabled me to trim the fat from the database


I had duplicates to ditch & I also shaved about 1200 songs off my database songs list (Obscure Album tracks)

I'll be seeing song titles in my sleep  :hihi: think I'm taking a break before my Brain melts
