I have a new music laptop. I installed Engine prime and dragged my whole music folder to the collection - this happened a few months ago. Today I noticed that some files are not in the collection. But they are in the music folder. Given that I added the whole music folder into the collection, it is a mistery to me how they are not there. So, now I checked: my music folder has 5500+ files. My Engine collection has 4400+ files. This means lots of files were not imported/added to collection (20%). Or maybe lost with the most recent update? Very annoying.
My question is: how do I identify tracks that are in my music folder but not in the Engine collection? I own ~ 100gb of music (I keep pruning my collection to only have stuff that I like), so obviously I won’t be able to notice every file is missing. Is there a way to do it? Like: add the music folder to the collection again but tell engine prime to reject all duplicates?
Please do not tell me to re-import the music folder again, because I will lose all the metadata that i have been building:( I have already lost it once when I moved to the new laptop. This engine prime business makes me more likely to spend a lot money on cdjs. The newest version of CDJs looks a bit like my sc5000s - with easy cue points etc - so I am seriously thinking about switching… The price is painful, but Rekordbox has not failed me yet… the only thing that is missing from cdjs is this loop knob/toggle that sc5000s have i use it all the time!
