Delete entire Audirvana library

I need to delete my entire library of about 350 music files. What is the best and easiest way to do it. Hopefully I do not have to use the + and - buttons and delete one at a time.

Delete the database file and rebuild it from scratch.

Hello @randy,

The easiest way would be to remove the synced folder from Audirvana library and delete those files where they are stored in your computer.

Hi Damien,

Where to find the files to delete under windows ?

Hello @EugeneChng,

Do you know the folder you synced with Audirvana?

It’s the default one … I was one sure if I can just delete it ? I now have some duplicate artist names that I am trying to clean up

Can you send me a copy of the “Debug Info”? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

If you remove E: from your synced folders, do you still have albums displayed in Audirvana?

No … nothing displayed when I remove my E drive … that’s where my music files are stored

Good news … when I put back E … some of the duplicates are gone
