    Issues with scanning new music

    This morning I ripped a couple of CD's with DBPoweramp and copied them to my media server, rescanned files and checked that they showed up under new music and were tagged properly. This normally takes about 1 minute to run as I have a very fast dedicated machine with a flash array. A notification popped up that there was a new version of the server available, so I logged into my media server and ran the updates as I have many times before. I ripped another CD and also added some FLAC files that I acquired from Bandcamp and reran the scan media. It took almost 45 minutes to run, so I knew there were problems. When I checked the New Music, it had two entries for each Bandcamp album I had added. I check my back catalog and every single Bandcamp album that I have purchase (over 350) shows up twice in the database. There may be others, but I'm not certain as my collection is currently over 5600 albums. I ripped another CD and added it to the server, rescanned and it showed up as a single entry under New Music. The Bandcamp FLAC albums are still all doubled.

    The version of LMS that I installed this morning when the problem started was Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.2 - 1578587389 @ Thu Jan 9 17:38:02 WEST 2020

    Thanks for any help.

    -More info

    After a closer look - All Bandcamp FLAC download albums show as two copies of the same album and all CD rips have every track duplicated in each album (The duplicates show the same path). My database showed about 65000 tracks before the upgrade and now shows 130000 tracks.

    Issues with scanning new music

    I am, right this very minute, erasing and re-scanning my entire
    collection because I noticed that 100s of albums now show 2, 3, or 4
    times in the list when I look at, say, Genre.

    But ... I'm using an older version:Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.1
    - 1522157629 @ Fri Mar 30 12:17:59 WEDT 2018

    Still, many, many, many duplications. And sometimes, and the reason I
    started the rescan, I see either tracks duplicated under one album
    listing or multiple albums with the same set of tracks.

    You don't have .cue or .m3u files in your album folders?

    Have you done a clear and rescan, instead of a look for new and changed?

    No, I have not. I will likely back off of this version until there is a fix. Any ripped CD I try to play doubles each track on playback.

    A clear and rescan had the same results

    I see many duplications in my 3000+ album/55,000+ library.

    Windows10 is the install.

    Listing of tracks in 2011 Winter Solstice Collection (2011) alongside the Windows Explorer view of the directory the .flac files are in. There are no dups of either directory or files.

    Use of the "find" command showing that there are no .cue or .m3u files in the entire set of /music/ directories (find ./* does a recursive search)

    Eleven albums total in this Genre listing. One is listed four times (tracks 1-4 in one album, track 5 in the second, same name; both of these "albums" duplicated). One has a album listed once, but the tracks in it are doubled (a single album, but track1, track1, track2, track2, track3, track3).

    What you see in the screen shots is immediately AFTER a "Clear library and rescan everything" run:

    The server has finished scanning your media library.
    Total Time: 00:24:02 (Friday, January 10, 2020 / 11:14 AM)

    MS OneDrive IS installed on this particular computer, but I have never logged into it, so it should not be syncing anything (as it has no place to sync anything to).

    Should we perform at clean install of LMS on some periodic schedule? I mean, wipe everything and start from scratch? I confess I hate the entire idea of doing that. But what options are there?

    IIRC, I never had to do this.
    What I'd try is setting the LMS root music folder to a newly created folder outside your current music folder and copy an album to it that currently shows duplicates and let it perform a full scan. If this works fine, add one more and let it scan for changed files etc. Looks like you don't use the typical Artist/Album folder structure. So you could try this as well. As soon as you get duplicates again, I'd set the log level for the scanner to debug (see Settings/Advanced/Logging) and see if that shows up something.

    UGH! I think you are right. But that's no use of LSM during the trouble-shooting. Which I suppose isn't all that bad. I do actually have a real CD player connected to my stereo at home (and a CD drive in the computer at work). I think, though, I'll concentrate on my home system where this same kind of duplication occurs (the libraries are copies of each other, so the same folder structure and same albums/tracks).

    You'd think this has got to be some kind of tag issue or something in the way that the tab db is being maintained over time.
