How to backup your Media Library

The Media Library file contains information that you have added against each item in the Media Library, e.g. categories, rating, BPM, last play information, length, and comments. It is highly recommended that you backup your Media Library periodically as you would not want to loose the work you have put into building your Media Library.

By default OtsAV uses the OtsAVDJ.oml Media Library file, which can be found in the C:\OtsLabs\Data directory. If you have specified another file and directory path then you will need to follow these instructions accordingly.

Note: The Media Library filename may be different than the one shown above, dependng on the version of OtsAV you are using.
OtsAVDJ.oml for OtsAV DJ Product License owners
OtsAVRD.oml for OtsAV Radio Product License owners
OtsAVTV.oml for OtsAV TV Product License owners
OtsAVDJt.oml for OtsAV DJ Trial users
OtsAVRDt.oml for OtsAV Radio Trial users
OtsAVTVt.oml for OtsAV TV Trial users

At present the best method to backup the Media Library is to use Windows Explorer to copy and paste the Media Library to the backup medium. (If you backup using a CD writer then you will need to use your CD writer software to backup this file).
