Hi,
I recently moved my music collection to another drive and used "Remap Music Folders" to tell MusicBee about it. The music plays properly. When I try to edit a track, however, after I press OK, I'm told "File not found at expected location" followed by the file name. The "Modified Date" field shows that the track updated, but it doesn't reflect the changes that I made. I've confirmed that the files are at the location that the edit window's Properties > Location" expects to find them.

I  just copied this thead below, because my englisch is not good. But I have exactly the same problem after relocating my library.

I am on vacation right now and have a lot of time for tagging :) A fix would be awesome!!

Best regards

First, please confirm that you really did do what the OP you quoted did, which is now referred to as "Relink Music File Paths" and is accessed by File-->Library-->Relink Music File Paths.  If so, please confirm that all of your moved files and playlists do PLAY fine from MusicBee after doing this.

If they are all found/play OK in MusicBee, try Tools-->Advanced-->Compress Library, followed by Tools-->Advanced--> Rescan all Files.  This is just to cover all bases!  It may or may not resolve your problem with being able to edit them, which if it continues could be due to Windows folder permission/rights issues at the new location.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I did everything I wrote and the things you suggested. :) didnt help. But I found the solution. The library organisation rules included a wrong old path! When I fixed it, everything worked again . Not sure if this is the intended behaviour or a bug!
