Traktor Pro 3 Deleting Songs From Playlists

Loudy Member Posts: 4 Member

Today I noticed a newer playlist of mine and some others were missing a lot of songs. One of them I was literally mixing in last night, everything was there and has been for a good month. But I opened my software today and that exact playlist is missing 50 or so tracks. When I search for them in the browser I find them but it gives me the error that they are missing and need to be relocated.

I have no clue why Traktor is taking tracks out of playlists and having them go missing. I always properly close and exit the software, and eject my SSD properly. I even imported an older collection and it's still missing. Typically you just get the error that a song needs to be relocated, but they are straight up disappearing from playlists. This happened to me once in the past when migrating my collection to my new SSD, but I'm noticing it happen again and again.

I just scanned my collection and nearly a third of it says it's missing and needs to be relocated. I'm not sure if there's a bug that's deleting info or something, but this is a major issue for me.

    But the files them self are still there and can be played in other software just fine?

    Maybe you closed Traktor too fast or did a shutdown of your computer befor Traktor could save the collection?

    Sometimes this takes longer, because Traktor makes a backup of your old collection.nml and creates a new one.

    Most of the time something like that happened to me it was because of that.

    Are you on windows or mac?

    EDIT: saw the tags now, so on windows

    goto your users documents folder => native instruments => Traktor <your version> => Backup => collection

    Before you shut down Traktor, try right-clicking on "Track Collection" and then click on "Save".

    That should help.
