Warning

In doing this you will lose all your playlists, venues and singers.

How To

  1. Quit kJams
  2. Navigate to your "kJams" folder. (/Users/<you>/Music/kJams)
  3. Inside that folder you'll see the "kJams Library" folder. See it?
  4. Trash the "kJams Library" folder (or make a backup somewhere, alternately you can simply right click-create archive it, and put a tilde (~) in front of the archive name, THEN delete the original folder.
  5. If you plan to re-add by "reference" songs from an external drive, and you had previously added to library picking "copy" (not "reference"):
    1. go into "kJams Music" and find "Unknown Artist" folder and throw that folder out
  6. empty the trash
  7. Run kJams
  8. Any songs you've previously "ripped", "purchased", or "copied" will automatically add to the library.
  9. Now "Add to Library" any other folders you need.

That's it!

Do NOT throw out "kJams CDs" or "kJams Musc" or anything else you find at the same level
