View Full Version : Corrupt library - how to delete it and rebuild from scratch?

The other day I posted about some phantom tags: tags which had been corrected but the old data stillhung around somewhere.

The suggestion was to check through playlists. I did that - in fact I pretty much deletd all my playlists, but the problem is still here. Today I also notice that a few of the genre tags that I had previously changed (and so should no longer exist) are still being displayed.

Wipe cache doesn't fix it ;-)

So how do I ditch the library and start again? I guess I should think about upgrading to SS 6.2 while I'm at it, so if that makes things easier to delete the library then any info appreciated.

Cheers!
Dan.

If you want to stay with the current version:

Stop slimserver
Find slimserver.db and delete it
restart slimserver - it will then automatically do a full rescan of your files.

The current 6.2 nightlies work fine for me so if you want to upgrade I would:

Do a complete unistall of slimserver
Delete any remaining slimserver directories/files
Install 6.2 - again it will then automatically do a full rescan of your files.

Hope this helps.
