How to refresh...
Topic: How to refresh browser
I have a filter folder set up to show tracks with no cover, but even after adding covers to a hundred or so tracks, the list won't refresh (even after a restart) and now the filter folder has files with covers in it.
Also where are the covers stored? In VDJ7 they are are jpg file with the same name, I tried backing up my library and all the new tracks with covers dont have the accompanying jpg file? I need to back up my new tracks AND their covers.

2) Covers are usually stored inside the track's tag (for all file types that support this). For the rest files covers are saved in cache.

For VirtualDj there are three cases:
1) A file has a cover saved inside the track's tag. Result: The file has a cover
2) The file has being assigned a graphics file by using the Tag Editor, or the automatic download covers option. The location of the graphics file is irrelevant. Result: The file has a cover
3) All other cases: The file does not have a cover
In other words: It doesn't mind if there are graphic files or not in the same directory with your file. It doesn't matter if there's a file with the same filename in the "Cache\Covers" directory.
It matters ONLY if the graphic file is linked with your file.
BTW: The correct filter to use in order to get all files WITHOUT a cover is:
exists = 1 and Album Art = 0
