How do I delete database entries that are no longer valid?
« on: January 01, 2010, 08:05:07 pm »
I recently copied some music files from one drive to the other. Seems the files were added back but the old ones are still listed in the database as well. Is there an easy way to reset the database to make sure that the files referenced actually exist?
Core: Broken :(

From web admin go to files and media -- files medis sync -- select your drive on the left -- then you will see a check box on the bottom for show missing files, this will list the files that are in the db above that is the button delete missing files.. Do that for all the drives for which you have media that no longer exsits.

Hi,

delete all missing is deleting everything in the db for that drive - I am not sure that is a good thing to do.
Any feedback on this ?

Things are redetected, but I think they are then X times in the DB.
