Slimserver played the same track twice in succession while playing and album. When I investigated I found that the second one had been scanned from the bin!!

My music folder is D: but I wouldn't expect a scan to go that far.

Is the 'bin' a subdir in the path? Or is it a subdir in the Playlist path?

IME, SS will scan it if it is.

Solution: make 'Music' & 'Playlists' directory at the same level as the 'bin', and put all your music below that.

eg:

D:\Music\<artist>\<album>\etc
D:\Playlists\etc

I see what you mean but it's a hidden system folder so I wouldn't expect it to be scanned.

It's not a big deal but it does explain why my SS song count was 2 out from what I expected.

I've sent Dan a possible fix for this.

I just saw the patch that was checked in. Isn't it possible that someone may want to use hidden links? Would it make more sense to avoid files with attributes Hidden+System, or maybe even just System?

Why on earth would someone want or need to hide a link and then expect a
program/process to follow it?

Why on earth would someone create a link and then hide it unless they
wanted some program or process to follow it?

Does this patch mean that artwork fetched via Windows Media Player will not be detected by SlimServer any more? I have several albums that WMP has detected and automatically added a folder.jpg as a hidden file. SlimServer used to detect these.

If SlimServer will now ignore hidden folder.jpg files, how can I easilly unhide the files?
