Multiple 'recently added' folders in Sonos when there's only one in my new Mac Music app

My old Mac died.  I redirected and found everything in Sonos from the new Mac EXCEPT that I now have three Recently Added folders. 


  There’s only one showing in Apple Music.


   I can’t see any way to find where these are from to delete the two I don’t want.

Any ideas?

Hi @Neil Gunnell 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

To clear those, I think you may need to remove your Music Library path entry and add it once more. It’s easiest to do this from the Mac’s Sonos app:

  1. Open the Sonos app for macOS
  2. From the Manage menu, select Music Library Settings.
  3. Click on the existing entry and then - (minus) to remove it
  4. Click + (plus) 
  5. If you use iTunes or are not sure where your music is stored, select My Music folder. If your music is not located in the My Music folder, select the appropriate option.
  6. Type in your computer’s password if prompted and follow the on-screen instructions to complete adding your music library. Depending on the size of your music library, it may take several minutes to index.

Once done, check to see you only have one Recently Added folder. If you still do, I recommend you get in touch with our technical support team who have tools at their disposal that will allow them to give you advice specific to your Sonos system and what it reports.

I hope this helps.

Sadly, made no difference.  Good idea though, Corry.  I’ll ask the tech folks.
