This way I could import them to WMP if something goes wrong. I'm not talking about my songs as I have them backed up already. I'm also not talking about the Playlists folder. I'm asking if I can backup the music lists that show in the Music folder that shows the Artist, Album, Genre categories in it, which is listed under the Playlists folder.

The reason I'm asking is because when I have transferred my backed up songs from my old pc's to new one's then WMP finds them automatically and lists them differently than how I had them where it takes me a long time to manually sort the lists and move each song into the lists where I want them. I do not want the auto find function disabled since it would take me much longer to add all of my music to WMP manually than to sort out the misplaced songs.

I'm hoping there's a way to save my customized WMP Music folder lists that are currently on my pc where I could either import them into WMP on this pc if something went wrong, or import them into WMP on my next pc so I won't have to do all of this manual song swapping to other WMP music lists.

After much searching I found that there is a program that will backup and restore WMP music libraries so you will not lose all your info and customized listings of music in WMP. It's very simple and easy to use. So I came here to answer my own question in case it may help someone else here.
