Hey guys,

I use MusicBee with an External Hard Drive. That is to say MusicBee is on my laptop but all my music is on my external hard drive. The last few questions, it has been fucking up loooooads. What "it" is I can't be sure yet. I thought and assumed it was my hard drive but recently I'm doubting. I figured I'd re-install MusicBee to solve the problem. However, I can't use the standard "Back-up Library" option because by the time I try to get to that point, MusicBee crashes / my hard drive crashes, it's hard to determine which one.

So my question is: can I do it manually? Can I get to the files I need and Copy them to Backup Folders without going through MusicBee?
Can anyone help me?
If I do this, either everything will be alright, or I need to get my hard drive fixed....

Thanks!

But MusicBee doesn't stay open long enough for me to perform those steps!
