After some days of normal working of slimserver, I am now not able to make it ruin again. Since I switched the directory to another full of flac files, the software will freeze after I say scan the files and clean all playlists. It will not even display properly, just a microsoft page saying that it cannot find the page. FRUSTRATING. I would like to restart from scratch. Any idea of what can be?

What OS and what version of SlimServer?

The directory that you switched to, does it
contain any shortcuts? There was a fix recently
that corrected SlimServer doing exactly what you
stated when it found shortcuts that were
recursive, pointing back to themselves or that
pointed to non-existent files.

I assume you're in Windows, check the Event Viewer
(Start - Run - eventvwr.exe)

May sound trite, but try reinstalling SlimServer.
You should try the latest nightly build as I
believe the recursive shortcut behaviour was fixed
about 1-1/2 months ago but may not be in the
production version 6.2.1.

Thank you Mark,

I figured out what the problem was: by reading an old forum I discovered the problem could lie in a perl issu, as I was keeping some cue sheets created with EAC together with the single flac files. I squeezed the cues to zip files and the problem was solved...

Thanks!
