View Full Version : Mixed success scanning music folders

Hello all.



I have been running SlimServer now for many many months but have noticed
since V4 and Now V5 - I am currently running V5.2.1.



I have 2 x 160 GB drives running on a Windows 2K box. Each drive has a
folder within which lie all the folders for each album.



The two data drives are:



F:\music

G:\data





There is another folder: C:\slimp3data which simply contains two shortcuts
to the drives mentioned above. SlimServer looks into c:\slimp3data to find
its music.



The problem that I am currently experiencing is that it will find all the
music on f:\music but when the scan eventually (10hrs+) completes - it
reveals none of the data on g:\data.



Previously I pointed slimserver to g:\data which in turn contained a
shortcut to f:\music - this worked some times but 'usually' only found music
that lived in g:\data and none from f:\music.





If I browse by folders, it lists both drives and I can navigate down each
drive and find all my music.



This is all running on a Win2K box with dual PIII 733 and 1GB Ram.



Am I missing something? Are there any potential pitfalls that I should be
aware of ?



Kind regards
