    Cover art gone - only 50x50 thumbnails exist

    Hi,
    after doing a complete "new" scan of my database (ok, it lasted > 30 hrs. but 1x-2x a year I do ;-)) with latest beta, the covers for many albums are gone and only the 50x50 thumbnails are there. BEFORE the rescan all worked fine...

    Situation:
    /music/d84343b4/cover_50x50_o - is there for EVERY album
    /music/d84343b4/cover_150x150_o and /music/d84343b4/cover - are MISSING with may albums.

    I didn't change any settings.
    In every case:
    - Folder.jpg is in the albums folder
    - the cover art is included in the *.mp3 (using mp3tag)

    Is it NOT a problem of the web browser or cache: Problem exists in web browser as well as on Squeezebox Touch and Squeezebox Radio as well as using eg Squeezer app (Android).

    Additional information:
    - In "Advanced => Formatting => Artwork" I defined Folder.jpg as "standard"
    - "Advanced => Formatting => Artwork Folder" is left empty
    - "Advanced => Performance => Artwork Pre-caching" is set to "Pre-cache album artwork"
    - "Advanced => Performance => Artwork Resizing" is set to "Use Logitech Media Server to resize artwork"
    (all settings unchanged to the "working" database before)

    What is going wrong and more important: How can I repair (I did some update scans afterwards, nothing has changed... )

    What happens if I delete just "artwork.db" - is it rebuilt with the nex "new and changed" scan or will it result in a new full/initial scan (I wanna avoid for lasting > 30 hrs...)

    Thanks!

    Did you check your server.log and scanner.log files?

    Yes, but I couldn't really see what happened - those are the entries to one of the file with "missing" cover art.

    Looks like server lost connection to my harddisk (makes me wonder, it's connected via USB, no network drive) during initial scan and so skipped the "resizing" - with the exception of the "50x50" one?

    Just did a test:
    - I played the file => artwork is NOT shown (on radio, touch, "big" image in browser)
    - "saved" the file to give it a new timestamp and played it again => artwork IS shown on all devices

    So it's no an option to "re-save" all of my files.
    Is there any way to do an "only artwork" scan, so the server scans all the files, where it has no artwork stored?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure of a clean way to do this. But you could shut down LMS,
    delete artwork.db, restart and run an incremental rescan? Worst case you
    try another full scan. Only takes 30h, you said?...

    I tried this this afternoon - no effect

    Yes. problem is, for security reasons I don't have my server running over night so I have to break and restart it three times (means 3 days no music).
    So I may step back to a backup before the last initial scan - this was fine but it had some "undeleted" files produced by the "new and changed" scan over the months. I will report in another thread, this is IMHO the "real problem", the initial scan was my way to find a "quick" solution...
    When I started with LMS more than 10 years ago, it was no problem to have an initial scan every week or so, lasting a few hours. But my library grew (as I guess it did for the most who does NOT want to rely on streaming services) so it is not an option anymore...

    Are you saying that you cancel the scan and restart a "rescan" the next
    day? That's likely to ask for trouble. You should definitely find a way
    to be able to run scans through without interruption.

    Indeed I did and saw, it wasn't really a good idea... ;-)

    ... so I upgraded my hardware this weekend and did a full scan of about 1.070 k tracks in 13 hours. That's acceptable.
    btw: Windows 10 Pro 64bit on an Intel Core i5-8279U CPU @ 2.40GHz (up to 4.20 GHz) system with 2 x 8 MB RAM.

    Forgot to answer this - no, it didn't work ;-)
