Title: Exclude files/folders
Post by: themusicalmind on March 02, 2015, 06:22:25 AM
Whenever I remove a file from the library it's gone for the current session (until I close MB) but once I restart MB the file pops back up again. Notice I only want to remove it from the library, but still keep it on my harddisk. As an example, I have an album but I don't like two songs and I don't want them to show up in my library, the current system just removes these items from the current session.

Would it be possible to have a checkbox or an exclude list in the preferences? So in a way you could set your library at D:\Music and inside Music exclude folders A and C, but manage B and D for example.

you can exclude specific folders from being monitored in
Preferences> Library> monitored folders

you can also exclude files from playback in
Tag Editor> Settings
although this will still leave the files in you library

This works but the full banned songs won't play in playlists I set for them. I'm assuming the only real way around this is to use the half ban and just use shuffle all the time. 

p.s is there a way to visually hide them in the library too?

You could keep them in the inbox. That won't affect static playlists, although it could affect auto ones.

You could also create a filter with a rule to hide tracks with a bomb rating, or a (custom) tag set to some value that you specify.
Auto-playlists could also exclude tracks by using that filter as their source, or by implementing the same rule.
