    Or it hasn't completed properly.

    Below are screenshots for a small library.

    Compare then to your screenshot, nuff said.
    If I'm mistaken it's because LMS didn't do what I selected. I do see the difference in your two screenshots. As I stated, I selected "clear library and rescan everything." If that's not what LMS is doing (did) then someone will have to show me how to correct that.

    I am about to run a clear and rescan right now and I will report back later today when I have some time.

    Well it didn't scan any files.

    Anyway, phred's question was why doesn't the reported total number of tracks correspond to the number or tracks on the drive and reported in the database.

    In my case the total number of tracks = the sum of the number of tracks I have on the hard drive + the number of tracks I have in my Spotify library. In my latest scan, which was a clear and rescan, I see the following.

    In Library Statistics
    Total Tracks = 41,893

    In Spotty
    Total Tracks = 6,264

    In Media Scan Details
    35,629 new music files were scanned

    See my earlier post. I think that is a possible explanation for the discrepancy.

    Yes, I think it's common knowledge that the first line of a scan counts files and directories 945 in example below, of which only 872 are music files.

    Except everything being scanned is on a NAS and the only files in the directory being scanned are MP3, .txt (lyrics,) and .jpg (artwork.) There is no Spotify. There is no OneDrive.

    But there is definitely a problem somewhere. I initiated a 'clear and rescan all' and the scan apparently hung at "building full text index (3 of 7) as that phase of the scan has been running for almost three hours and the only thing changing is the elapsed time. Could this be a corrupt database? A corrupt media file? I'm am aborting the scan.

    Suggestions? Fixes?

    Either uninstall the plugin "Full text search" or install a more recent version of LMS.

    Uninstalling the plugin and starting a new clear and rescan resulted in a complete scan. Thank you for that.
    But the numbers remain pretty much the same.



    I'm going to chalk it up to what a couple of folks here said - it's including not only the files, but the directories also.
    And I'm satisfied that the scan is running properly and I don't really have to look at the statistics again unless something really screwy happens.

    Thanks to all who replied.

    Well we're getting somewhere.

    If it were me, I'd remove the playlists folder path from Settings/Basic Settings, do a clear and rescan, and have a look at the numbers again.

    So the tracks total includes tracks in playlists. I had no idea. I don't have many playlists though so it doesn't have an obvious effect on my total.
