I'm moving all my music (over 40GB) to an external drive. What's the best way to get WMP 11 to find the new location without creating duplicate entries?

Hi,

if you select move instead of copy the files will be moved from teh original location then click library at teh top add to library and advanced options, add teh location where you have moved them

if you get duplicate entries then got to

USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\

clear out teh folder log out and back in again and you shoudl be good to go

ah , started copying already, is it the same if I just delete the originals afterwards - i don't trust 'move' too much ;-), prefer to make sure they copy ok.
