Can I transfer My Media data to a new computer?

Post by StarkJWS » Fri Dec 14, 2018 6:01 am

Hello,

I just built a new computer after the old one crashed and would like to transfer all of my "My Media" data to the new system.
If possible, what files should I copy to the new machine so that I will not have to re index everything or set up all new Playlists and Overrides.
All my music is in the same directory location as on the old system so the links should be the same.

THANKS for your help!!

This can be done as follows:

1. uninstall My Media on the first computer
2. copy the following directory to the same location on the new computer:
c:\Program Files\MyMediaForAlexa (on Windows computers)
~/.MyMediaForAlexa (on Mac/Linux computers)
3. Install My Media on the new computer

Don't re-instal My Media on the first computer or things will go slightly crazy as both services will be running with the same My Media server id which will confuse things.
