Since I also run Mixxx without the drive when I'm just testing, I copy my ~/.mixxx directory to the drive for safe-keeping after each gig, since the database file (with analyzed tracks, cue points, etc.) is stored in there. Then I erase ~/.mixxx and point it to the local music folder when I run it again for testing.

This would also be useful for developement/testing where I would not like to mess around with my long living database. Then one does not have to copy files around (backup is nonetheless useful).

I suppose I could just copy the files to the external drive and then between partitions every time I make changes, but that would be tedious and being able to point to these configuration files seems (to me) like a relatively easy change to make.
