FAQ: How to move files, change recording dirs, etc.

The topic of how to move recordings, imported media files, change recording directories, move SageTV to a new PC, etc. gets asked fairly frequently and has outgrown its old single-post FAQ entry, so here is a thread to explain only those things.

This thread is closed for discussion, so if you have questions about any of the items here, please start a new thread for your topic, or join an existing one.

The posts below cover these topics:

How to move recordings
How to move imported media and retain metadata
How to change a Video Recording Directory between drive letter and UNC paths
How to move an entire Video Recording Directory
How to move SageTV to a new computer and retain all recordings
How to clear old recordings from a non-existent path

Note: always create a backup copy of wiz.bin and before trying anything listed here.

Usually, wiz.bin and can be found in the same directory where your SageTV server is installed. For Windows Vista, see this FAQ: Where to find Sage properties files in Vista.
