I've got songKong Pro 64bit and I would like to move the database (and if possible also logs and reports) from
c:\Users\[me]\AppData\Roaming\SongKong\Database\ (and ...\Logs and ...\Reports and songkong.properties and genrelist.txt) to another disk with better performance and more free space than my actual c:\-drive.
I found an article about doing that on Mac, but how can I do it on Windows/windows 64?
Hello Paul,
my fix-run has now finished (at ~ 36 songs/minute).
But I do not really understand the counters in the overview of the "Fix Songs" window (see attachment with screenshot):
It has loaded 94149 songs, generated fingerprints for them, but it has saved 94212 - that are 63 more than it has loaded. And it says "Fertiggestellt" (ready) are 94710 - that are 561 more than loaded.
What does this mean / how can this be explained ?

By the way: Some translations are missing / not shown correct (its german at me). I marked them in the screenshot.
"Creating Report" should be "Erstelle Report"
"Songs saved" should be "Songs gespeichert"
(not marked, but also not translated):
"Started at" should be "Gestartet am"
"File" (in the menu of SongKong) should be "Datei"
"Action" should be "Aktion"
There are also some typos.
So if you like, I can translate/fix the errors; maybe you just have a ressource file or alike for it.

Hi Paul,
thank you for your quick response on that.
I didn't want to anger you - sorry if it sounds like that (english is not my natural language; so sometimes i maybe find the wrong words). My intention for the question was more in the direction: Is that a throughput which is typical? Or can I get it even faster somehow (more memory, ....)?
You're absolutly right: Compared to manaully tagging my files (or correct them, which makes it even worse), this is really, really fast.

So I do understand from your answer, that this is quite good behaviour and I needn't to tweak anything, right?


I started yesterday a SongKong-Fix-Run with SongKong Pro on a collection of 95.000 song-files (most of them being MP3s).
Now, 21 hours later, it has worked on 44.000 of them.
This gives an average of 44.000 / 21 h = ~35 / minute.
So it takes nearly 2 seconds per file.
I looked up typical performance-metrics on the PC:
~ 20 % CPU taken by SongKong
~ 6 MB/sec Diskactivity overall (and 99% coming from SongKong)
~ 2.4 GB memory taken by SongKong (still 6 GB of 32 GB available from OS)

I see that it amkes a lot of calls to different servers:
- stimpy.musicbrainz.org (rarly)
- server-52-85-184-76.fra2.r.cloudfront.net (sometimes switching to another 52.85.184.x -Server)
- h2.acoustid.org (~8 open TCP-connections in parallel)

Is that "normal" throughput? What are other users of "Pro"-version get? 2 Seconds per file seems somewhat "slow" for me (especially because I read that the main issue is the MusicBrainz limit with 1 call /second, but on th other hand the Pro-Version says "twice the rate of Standard" (so that would mean 4 seconds per file).
