Hello!

Well, I've got a problem (duh).
I recently moved my data drive letter from E:\ to D:\. I relocated the library in MusicBee, everything gets found, no problem so far.
As you read in the headline, however, I run into two problems:
All song ratings are vanished. This is pretty bad for me because I have auto playlists which need the info and I have to re-rate each single song (currently above 4,232 songs) again.

My next problem: I divide my music in "Purchased" and "Free" (such as free downloads from Soundcloud). The "Purchased" playlist is a playlist folder which contains several playlists which are divided in CDs, digital downloads, Bandcamp, iTunes, albums, singles and so on.
The playlist folder usually shows a merged list of all playlists it contains. After relocating the playlists still exist but the playlist folder is empty.
I just created a new folder and moved my playlists there. But I can't delete the old playlist folder. A message apperas which tells me the select folder doesn't contain files and can't be removed. The folder looks empty and doesn't contain any playlists anymore.

Have you been storing the ratings in the files, or in mb database only? (You can find this setting in Tags (1) preferences)

If you have an old version of your library (.mbl) file, you might yet be able to recover the ratings.  But either way, I strongly recommend you start storing them in the music files, so this doesn't happen again.

Okay, I'll probably have no other choice then.

However, a bigger problem for me are the two playlist folders which can't get deleted.
