Hi everyone,
I want to use the auto organise function of MB, but I'm not sure how should I set it up.

1) I have my folder on my NAS on \\Delibrid\Musica. Is this the right setting?

2) Since I have two computers, if I check " on startup check for missing or updated files" can it check also for new files? If not, how can I make MB check for new files inside it's library?

That won't work since your NAS is not part of C:. What you'll probably need to do is map the network drive to a drive letter on your computer. (For instance, I have my NAS set up as P: on my computer, and MusicBee can see it.) I strongly recommend only having one machine handle the organization, if you have MusicBee on both. Otherwise they could get into a tug-o-war over the files.

And yes, if you add the drive as a monitored folder then "check for missing or updated files" should find new files for you.

So the correct way should be this right?

Shouldn't this be easily avoided setting them to check for new, updated or deleted files only on startup?

Your settings there look about right, but it doesn't seem to recognize that the files shown are on drive Z:. Make sure they show up when you navigate to Z:.

Having it done at start should mostly keep them from accessing the same files at the same time, but if you're templates aren't 100% identical they'll be moving files back and forth constantly. Better to have one template and one place to maintain it if you want to make changes.
