Update Database

(Updated 2017-3; BallroomDJ version 3.8.1)

The Update Database function is used to rebuild the database or check for new files.

If Rebuild Database is selected, any current information in the BallroomDJ database will be lost and the database will be rebuilt based on the audio files that are present. Backups of the BallroomDJ database are in the data\ sub-folder.

Update From Tags will update the BallroomDJ database with the information from the audio file tags. Use this selection if you use another program to update the audio file tags.

Update Modified Files From Tags will update the BallroomDJ database with the information from the audio file tags, but only for audio files that have been modified since this selection was last used.

Check For New will check for any new files in the music directory and add them to the BallroomDJ database.

Select the update database funcion and select the Start button to begin processing. If you have a large collection of files, this can take a long time.

Once complete, a report will be displayed listing how many files are currently in the database and how many files were processed.
