Subsonic 6.1 - Losing tracks after editing tags

Postby chuckles » Wed May 31, 2017 2:24 am

An album in my collection had a problem with it's title. I used a tag editor to fix it. I ran a scan of media folders and I went back to see my changes to the album in Subsonic, the title was there but all the tracks were gone. The only way I could get them back was to delete the database and scan a new one.

Anyone else seeing this? Any thoughts?

Subsonic is horrible at handling album name changes and is very frustrating when this happens.

Sometimes:
> I am able to move the renamed folder to somewhere that Subsonic doesn't index.
> Run a scan
> Clean database
> Add renamed album/folder back to correct location
> Scan again

This sometimes fixes the problem.
Other times, I pull my hair out, smash my computer against the wall, curse wildly, delete database, and start from scratch.

I have found that if I change the date modified of the folder, Subsonic will treat the album as new and it doesn't disappear.

I have a similar issue with 6.1.1 see viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17158

TL;DR old refreshed albums doesn't get properly updated and won't show up or at least only some tracks. solution is to remove album, scan, clean, readd, scan again... but it's pretty anoying also it's loosing all the stats :/

Simpler solution is to just add/change/remove any file in that subfolder, e.g. renaming cover.jpg to front.jpg.

Thank you so much! That saved me a lot of work. Last time I had this problem, I completely resetup the server. Your solution works like a charm. :D
