View Full Version : Does Rescan stop by itself?

Hopefully this is not a stupid question. However, everytime I click "Clear library before rescan" and then click the Rescan button, it never seems to finish. Should I not receive a message or some indication that the rescan completed?

There's no notification,
but if you return to the 'home' page of SlimServer you will either see a
message 'SlimServer is still scanning your library', or a number of
tracks etc. which means it's finished.

Tony - which version of Slim Server are you using?

Do you have any Windows Shortcuts in your music directory?

Or any playlists that refer to themselves?

(Both of these issues have been fixed in the 6.2 nightlies)

Version 6.1.1
No shortcuts in the music folder.
I don't have any playlists setup.

I tried 6.2 the other day and it completely horked the whole system
