How to reset the doubleTwist library database on Windows


How to reset the doubleTwist library database on Windows

To force a new import from iTunes, please delete the library database files (DTMediaLibrary.sqlite3 & DTMediaLibrary.sqlite3-journal).

  1. The doubleTwist library database files are stored inside the doubleTwist folder on your PC. The full path is:

  2. C:\Users\[YOUR_USERNAME]\Appdata\Local\doubletwist Corporation\doubleTwist Desktop\Data\[LONG_RANDOM_STRING]\

    For example, on this test machine. The [YOUR_USERNAME] is "admin" and the [LONG_RANDROM_STRING] is "c08ae282-7749-4a26-b6e7-ad9492e335ad". So, the full path is as follows:

    C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\doubleTwist Corporation\doubleTwist desktop\Data\c08ae282-7749-4a26-b6e7-ad9492e335ad
  3. You may need to adjust settings to see hidden folders if you do not have this option already set.


    Windows 7

    For a shortcut to the "doubleTwist Corporation" directory, please paste this into an Explorer window (this will also work on systems that do not have the view hidden folders option enabled). Then navigate into "doubleTwist Desktop" and then into "Log".


  4. Resetting the doubleTwist Library will also erase playlists, ratings, and playcounts that are only in doubleTwist. Items that are in iTunes or Windows Media Player will be unaffected.

    Upon next launch after deleting these files, doubleTwist will re-import from iTunes and Windows Media Player to recreate the library database.
