Move NetSearch songs to another drive or folder

By default, cached NetSearch songs are stored in the VirtualDJ\Cache folder on your main system hard drive (Please see: NetSearch cache folder location)

This folder location cannot currently be changed, but you can optionally move cached songs out of this folder and put them in any folder of your choice, including a folder on an external hard drive.

However, if you do this, the songs will not be automatically renewed when starting the software.

If you intend to use the songs off-line with no Internet connection, then you will need to renew them manually. We would recommend doing this just prior to going to your gig.

To refresh the songs manually, make sure that you have an active Internet connection and then browse to each drive/folder where cached songs are located. Hold down either SHIFT or CTRL to select the appropriate files, then right-click on them (Or CMD+click on a Mac) and choose the option to renew the cache authorizations.

If the folder only contains NetSearch songs, then you can press CTRL+A (PC) or CMD+A (Mac) to select all files.

NOTE: If you have an active Internet connection and attempt to load an expired song, it will be renewed automatically, but this may result in a delay loading the song.
