I need to format an reinstall windows 10 (coz it sucks) and the csv file that exporting the library to has not worked on dragging and dropping back into MIK after a fresh install.

I think I've even tried copying the old folder from the program files folder from a backup hard drive. Didn't work. Likely something to do with a registry or some other file I need to find?

Any ideas???

Hi there,

The file that you need can be found in C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME GOES HERE\AppData\Local\Mixed In Key\Mixed In Key\YOUR VERSION\MIKStore.sdf file.

Please note that the AppData folder is a hidden folder, so you will have to set your PC to display hidden files and folders to see it.

Let me know if it works fine :)



I've just recovered from a failing hard drive with bad sectors. I decided to go with a new solid state drive for my windows installation(stability and speed) and a new second internal hard drive for storage.

The .sdf file transfer worked perfectly and the mik library and playlists are restored, however due to the music folder being on another drive (D:\music) mik would definitely not find the files and pointing them out individually would take forever.

The structure within my music folder is exactly the same. Is there any way to point mik to the music folder on the new drive without importing and reanalysing from scratch?
