I have been going through my music library and clearing out the 'crap' that's accumulated after about 8 years of collecting digital music. (Low bitrate stuff, partial songs, "why did I download that?", etc...) I've also done quite a bit of moving tracks around, since I've got a lot of folders like "Beatles", and "Beatles,The" ... depending upon varous tagging apps I've used over time.

Well after a marathon session with the "Delete" and cut/paste keys, I told SlimServer do a Clear and Rescan ... twice. However, on completion of the scan both times ... it still thinks some of the things I deleted or moved are in the old locations! In some cases, whole directories have been completely deleted by me ... but SS thinks they're still there.

What do I need to do to get SlimServer to REALLY forget about everything it knew about my library and load it all fresh?

I'm using 6.5.0 on Win2k3.

Do you have any playlists referencing the deleted files? If so, Slimserver will read them and assume the tracks exist, and add them to the DB.

Ah, I think I found it .. thanks. It was MusicMagic ... I had to tell the MusicMagic server to reload the cache. I had refreshed the MM library using the GUI, but forgot that the service would be working off the old cache.

All is well now. Thanks.
