    I've moved all my big storage, including films, out of my media PC and onto a NAS. Is there an easy way to tell MovingPictures where the files have moved to and avoid having to rebuild the database from scratch? Or is there a tool I could use to run an update command on the SQLite database to change the file paths?

    The Moving Pictures Configuration has an option for this.

    1. Open the Moving Pictures Configuration
    2. Open the tab "Movie Importer"
    3. Select the drive that has moved
    4. Click on the down-arrow next to the minus
    5. Select "Toggle Replaced"
    6. Add the new path
