There's also a bug where only 1 track with the same Artist, Album &
Track number combination can be stored in SlimServer.
I found this was responsible for a lot of my iTunes music disappearing
from SlimServer.

Hi Keith,

Is it possible that the permissions for the Y: drive prevent the SYSTEM

account (which is how the SlimServer is running) from accessing the
files on that drive?

That would explain the problems you are seeing.
