Change PC, retain stats?

Hey all Winampers,

I joined up here a few years ago to ask pretty much the same question I am now. I'm just wondering if the time elapsed since then has seen this peculiar problem rectified.

Firstly, I'm upgrading PC and don't want to lose my track statistics. Will Copy+Pasting my current winamp folder across to the new PC allow me to retain the statistics of my tracks? Or are there seperate files, maybe temporary, not located in the Program Files/Winamp folder that control most played or rating?

If I can do this, should I copy/paste the music files first, or the winamp folder?

Secondly, since I last asked about 2 years ago can you change the file path of a particular track without losing the statistics of that track? (i.e Most Played, rating etc). My new PC will have a System drive C: and a storage drive D: (where i want music to go). I currently have just one drive C: so when I go to put all my music on the new storage drive which has a different root, I assume all stats will be lost?

Thanks for any help
