    Since I'm running low on my current hard drive I'm planning to replace it with a 2TB hard drive. My question is that will I have to import all the movies again or is it possible for the plugin to keep track of the drive change ?

    If the drive is a direct replacement, so it has the same address as original and the folders are identical in layout, then there should be no issue.

    I replaced my drive from a 1TB to a 2TB, kept the same drive letter (E:) and now when I run MovingPictures it's attempting to re-load all the movie info :(

    Is there an easy way to just update the MovingPictures SQLite DB3 file. Do I simply update the volume_serial field in the local_media table?
