Okay. Feel free to laugh if this is obvious and yet I've somehow missed it. Is it possible to delete albums or tracks from the SS database =without= having to do a "clear all and rescan"? I'm not talking about deleting the physical file itself from the harddrive... just it's presence in the db.

use iTunes
set pref to delete unchecked iTunes tracks
uncheck that ones you want gone, and the iTunes reload will deal with
it.

otherwise, slimserver does its best to catalog everything it finds in
the music folder tree or MusicIP data feed.

Yeah, but... he's still got a good point in that Slimserver never
"uncatalogs" unless you browse music folder down to the file and find it
missing (I think -- been avoiding that because of LazySearch).

funny, looked like a question rather than a statement or debate
resolution.
but then, I'm not an english professor.
