well hello there, dear reader, i have a question about Musicbee and the functioning of dead links
i'll start with explaining the current situation: i have a laptop with a limited amount of space (about 200GB total, FYI) and a few days ago, i reached the limit, so to say. my music library covers about 75% of all data and i don't really have any space left for it. that being said, i do have an external hard-drive i always connect to when at home (sort of a desktop set-up) and I've decided to fill the external hard drive with the music that's going to be added in the future. of course I'll only be able to listen to the tracks at home and not on the way, but i don't really mind. what i do mind however is that, when I'm not connected, the player will try to play one of the files indexed by Musicbee, find out the HDD isn't connected, and report said track as "missing"/a dead link. and I'd have to rescan every-time i come home.
is there any (simple) way to index the files, but disable them, so they won't be played until i reconnect, or do i have to blacklist them from my standard autoplaylists and create seperate autoplaylists for when i'm at home and when i'm on the go?
i hope this was understandable, if not, please tell me what was unclear and i'll try to reword it/use correct grammar
thanks in advance!
