    Hi all,
    I moved all my Apple Loops onto my external drive, then deleted the files in the Apple Loop Index folder. With finder open, I started GB and dragged the new folder over the Loop Browser to re-index the files. I closed GB, shut my iMac down then restarted it and GB but my loops were not there. I have tried dragging the new folder a couple of times but same result. A window opens and asks me if I want to copy the loops over or keep current location, I select keep current location. I have followed advice I found on the web how to use an external drive for the loops but it does not seem to work. I have also tried this on my wife's iMac and my daughters MBP, all the same. In the end I have just restored everything I deleted from the trash and it all works fine.

    Why does GB not re-index the loops when I drag the folder over? Any help would be most appreciated.
