Full Version: Snych only ONE collectkon

I need / would very much like the option to synchronize just one collection to a different tablet.   "My" tablet has 6400 songs, and 63 collections.  My friends don't want ALL of my stuff, but since I make frequent modifications to a collection that we all use,  the ability to sychronize just the one collection with mine would be very useful !
You could perhaps set up a separate library which only contains this collection; they could then sync to that.

The downside is that you have to switch libraries which, depending on your method of working, may be inconvenient should you quickly need to refer to the non selected library.

Wouldn't it help to share your collection as msf (or would that result in double entries)? Though if so probably it's not much effort to delete your collection on your friends devices before reimporting your current version by msf.
Forgot to say that you would be well advised to backup up your library before attempting to split it (just in case it doesn't work as you expected).

Also, with 6000+ songs, make sure you take regular backups as you wouldn't want to try to recreate it should it get corrupted.

Cheers

It appears that even though I create and switch to a new Library, A synch tablets still utilizes all files even from a different library.

I'll check into that.  Currently my solution is to save my collection using songs from a file location on my PC  to Google Drive,  and then importing from Google Drive to the second tablet.  This is not always useful in the the user of the 2nd tablet does not have access to MY Google Drive.
