    Scanner can't see symbols?

    I was running on Linux for ages, keeping up with 7.9 nightlies occassionally and recently moved to Windows 10 nightlies. Updated today just to be sure, ran a full scan and, in light of his recent sad passing, was looking to play some Prince. Can't find Sign o' the times; Looking closer, the peace/CND symbol appears to be the problem:

    Sign ô☮ö The Times
    I would prefer not to change the directory name, especially as it used to work (from what I can recall).

    Is this a known issue or my config problem or just a Windows thing?

    I have browsed the scanner.log and no trace of that directory even being accessed. I have removed my playlists as they had crap in them anyway and running a fresh full scan so the log is minimal. I can send it if it helps.

    Don't know if this helps , but folder and file name can be different than the file tags ? Tags are more tolerant than file names ,especially cross OS and disc format systems even more so if you acess the library over cifs/samba on a NAS .

    Hopefully it can be fixed.

    Just tried on Win10 and could create a folder using the characters you've given and after copying a file to it I could play it on a SB player selecting the track by using LMS web UI MyMusic->MusicFolder. Did not try a 'real' scanning, though. Maybe you can check first if this works for you as well.

    I tried Music Folder (via the web interface, I'm at work) and I cannot see the folder:

    Name:  Logitech Media Server.png
Views: 111
Size:  20.3 KB

    It's there in Windows Explorer. Hmm.

    If your library is not too big I'd set the log settings for the scanner to Debug and run a full scan again to have all the details in the scanner.log.
    Otherwise, I'd try with just the missing folder as the only part of your library. Guess the following should allow you to revert things easily: stop LMS to rename the cache folder and your library root folder, copy the concerned folder to a new directory named like your old library root folder, and restart LMS which causes a new full scan.

    What if browsed on device or mobile app? What about the Albums folder?
    And did you check the server.log file when browsing the music folder?

    The directory name is actually rendered as "Sign [STS]?[CCH] The Times" in the log, the [] being special characters. No decent into the directory. I will repeat with debug but only point at the Prince directory. I would also note that I have other non-ASCII characters in a variety of places and most seem OK, but of course I don't know what isn't as I may simply not have noticed what is not there.

    Full debug rescan of just "Prince" directory - Apart from the title track appearing in another Album directory no attempt appears to be made to decend into that one.

    The characters STS and CCH are the Unicode C293 (U+0093) and C294 (U+0094), which look similar to the regular double quotes character and the peace character in between could either not be read properly or could not be written to the log file. The regular double quotes character is not allowed as part of directory or file names in Windows, but using similar ones is ok. The Unicode peace character is U+262E, which is also allowed in file or folder names.

    BTW, what does LMS say about the language and code page? You can find it on the web UI settings->information tab, under LMS status. Mine, for example is "Operating system: Windows 10 - EN - cp1252".
