Questions / Re: Noob Music Libray Issue

When I open Music Bee, the number of files shown in the library is only a fraction of what it should be. I have to rescan both drives for the missing files. Once that's done everything is back to normal.
Are you saying this happens every time?
So after you have closed MusicBee and restart it later, again the majority of your music doesn't show and you will need to rescan again?

I've determined that the creation of a Thumbs.db file is what's causing the folders' date modified attribute to update.
Great, now that that is established it probably won't be too difficult to google for a solution. (or just live with it and don't worry about it ;-)

You mentioned some temp file appearing and disappearing.
If you enable 'show hidden files' and uncheck 'hide protected system files', and keep a sharp eye on the folder when you use your shortcut key, maybe that gives some clue about what's happening?

edit:
Are there any files in these folders that get their timestamp changed?
(e.g. maybe a hidden folder.jpg)
Very good suggestion: I've determined that the creation of a Thumbs.db file is what's causing the folders' date modified attribute to update. As for why some folders have a Thumbs.db and some don't, I haven't the faintest clue. I could have sworn Windows just made them automatically. As for my initial sighting of a temp file being created and removed, that wasn't the Thumbs.db itself. No idea what that could have been.

Looks like instead of just making one whenever the folder is accessed, and since I don't actually access the folder after putting it in my library, it never got a chance to create one?

Questions / Noob Music Libray Issue
Last post by bigdaddy801 on Today at 07:08:22 PM   |  Started by bigdaddy801
Background: My library has over 8700 artists, with 73K or so tunes total, located on two drives. All genres. The majority of the files are in .flac.

Issue: When I open Music Bee, the number of files shown in the library is only a fraction of what it should be. I have to rescan both drives for the missing files. Once that's done everything is back to normal. What am I missing? Do I have something not set up properly? Sorry to be such a noob.

I have removed the 'poll' you posted since it wasn't relevant to your question.

Questions / playlist

Can I add tracks to an imported playlist mb can't find files but they are in there.

Hello, can someone confirm that this occurs on their system? It should be easy to replicate.

Change to album cover view, start with a record with no track numbers and at least 5 tracks, and then add the track numbers one by one using the "next" key.

Probably not relevant at all, but I do notice that my header says 'Folder Options', and yours says 'File Explorer Options'.
(I'm on Windows 1809, maybe something has changed with more recent Windows updates)




Interesting. I'm on 1709 myself.

Just had this happen again:
