    Media Count Discrepancy

    Using LMS 7.9.4 - 1603273368 one a Win10 PC.

    I have LMS set to do a media scan daily at 1845. Usually just an update of new and changed files. I've been noticing that during the past few days the scan numbers don't match the actual results. Today I did a "clear library and rescan everything" and the numbers are even odder than previously. As you can see in the screenshot, it's showing total tracks at 59,786 which discovering 38,856. The lower number is closer to reality, which is actually 36,347. I don't really care much (at this point) in a 2,500 track difference. But I do care about a difference of more than 20,000. Can anyone explain why that might be happening? And more importantly, how to correct it?

    Thanks.

    I can't say why the scan report has such a high initial track count, but I have always assumed that the discovering files/directories count will be higher than the final number of tracks, because it includes the folder structure.

    Did you say the screenshot was of a "Clear and rescan"? It doesn"t appear to be.

    It occurs to me that maybe the "Total Tracks" includes tracks from streaming services as well as the local library?

    I did a rescan on a backup server and it shows;
    Total tracks 41,855
    Scanned files 35,607
    Spotty tracks 6,248

    The value for total tracks is the sum of scanned files plus Spotty tracks.

    I think it is. If it were just a "scan for new and changed" the second line would be "Scanning changed files", rather than "Discovering playlists".

    Where is "Scanning new music files" after Discovering files?

    Don't agree, a clear and rescan second line would be "Scanning new music files".

    I suspect you only get that if it discovers new (rather than just changed) music files during the "Discovering" phase.

    It should be "Scanning new music files" if it's a clear & rescan, because it's database no longer exists, so every music file is "new", not "changed".
