I'm a total newbie at this... And, yes, I did try searching the forums and reading the faq... I just have to believe there is something obvious I'm missing...

Here's my problem. I got my SB3 connected to my network, a SFF PC running Slimserver (latest v), and the slimserver software to index my music files on my terastation. But... I maintain two complete libraries--128 kbps AACs for portable iPod use and Apple Lossless files for use with my home audio gear. That means slimserver finds two copies of everything--I'd just like to delete the lossy compressed files from the repertoire, or have it ignore those files, or... Is there an easy solution?

Keep the AACs and Lossless files in different folders?

Given that I use iTunes on some machines, moving files around would mean reindexing everything. Since I can't get iTunes to reliably index even what I have now (about 30K songs--or 2 x 15K songs, depending on how you look at it). The lossy compressed files are in a separate folder off the main folder. Would slimserver ignore the folder if I "hid" it somehow or changed access permissions? I could then change it back after the indexing... Any possibility there?
