Usage question
#2
The Companion is really just a way to manipulate the files to/from/on the tablet with appropriate adjustments to the MSP database - you can't preload it with files

What you could do is put all the files you want into a single directory on the pc and then use the companion to do a Batch Import from that directory (you can put them into a single collection at the same time; perhaps have a separate directory per collection). If you want to do other fields in the database then you will have to wait until you have imported them.

By default, MSP, on an android anyway, automatically updates (too often for my liking) and occasionally, people find that it has done this just before a gig resulting in it not working when they really need it. To prevent this, I have turned  automatic updating off (the tablet will tell you when updates are available). To perform a manual update, run the "Play Store" app, press the three horizontal lines in the search bar and then select "My apps & games".

I use the Companion to create a backup on the pc  - that way I have something to revert to. I suggest you get into the habit of creating such backups (even if you don't turn off automatic updates like I do). I only do it before an update but one should probably do it whenever one has made significant changes which one wouldn't like to try and replicate (like now)

Another option (which I haven't tried) is to store your files in the "cloud"; this would have allowed you to have recovered the files by "Syncing to a cloud folder".
