I found a "slimserversql.db" in C:\Progam Files\SlimServer\server\cache. Is that the right one? (Certainly sounds like the right one, but thought it best to check...)

My library has only around 5.5k tracks, and the file-size of slimserversql.db is about 6.5MB.

Can't find any other *.db files.

Perfect - many thanks. I'll give that a go right now.

I didn't 6.2 was not available as a general release yet, so I'll hang on till the first official release.

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.

Yep, that's the one to delete.
