Sorry, the app said to post that in the forum.

I was dragging an artist to a playlist, and it kept saying.

in windows explorer, if you go to the Music\Playlists\ folder and view the file for the playlist (filename extension will be .mbp), is it 0 bytes in size?
If it has a size > 0, can you send me a link to it

Ah, I do see, when I click on the playlist itself, there is a message near the top saying "unable to access..." and link to the list. The list has size, so here is a link to the fil - https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vrjw5n8bcs6574/All%20Mainstream.mbp?dl=0

It looks like the playlist was stopped from saving mid-way through. Do you recall restarting windows (or perhaps terminating musicbee itself) just after making a change to that playlist (before adding the files to the playlist that threw the error you reported)?

The full playlist itself is not recoverable and should be deleted.

Now that you mention it, I do recall last week, a time where the program was sluggish. I hadn't done anything directly with that playlist, but when I tried to exit, it said it wasn't done saving. So I waiting a little longer and tried again. It said the same, so I figured it must be stuck, so I said yes, and it exited. That had to be it. So something caused it to stick before I closed it, but that must be it.
