I'm using MusicBee to clean up a rather messy manual Music library ... tracks from CDs missing info, multiple formats, etc

In order to avoid corruption of my own Library, I created a new Library on my PC to perform the cleanup

At this stage, I haven't actually added Music - I've been adding data to the original files and converting everything to MP3 format, saved in  organised folders ... merging albums that had been stored as disc1 - discN into concise, logical order

Since both PCs will have access to a shared (local) cloud, I was wondering if I should create a clean "base" folder there and then link to the media files as something along the lines of

Code
\\CloudDevice\Share\path\MusicBee\Music\file-convert-output

then once the cleanup is done, simply move (or copy) the entire newMB-database folder to the other PC

I'm not overly concerned about layout mirroring, just getting the data to his PC with least fuss - and hopefully keeping Media linkage intact (so he doesn't mess it all up again)
