View Full Version : Mystery of the Disappearing Playlists

Here's a problem I've sorted, but might be of use to others.

For some reason SC stopped responding and on restarting I was confronted with the setup wizard. Annoying, but easily remedied. After a total rescan my playlists had disappeared.

Checking the server verified the files were still there. Another playlist scan: SC reported scanning around 25 playlists, but after the scan no playlists were visible in SC. Saving a new playlist worked fine.

Copying my backed up playlists over the original files and doing a rescan restored them to their former glory - including one that hadn't been included in the backup.

I've no idea what the problem was, but do know that keeping a backup was really useful.

This should only happen if you lose your settings. Did you recently run a
scandisk?

No, but I had just recently installed some anti-virus software on the server. Maybe I should have stopped SC while doing the install :o\
