First the summary:
Installed subsonic on my raspberry pi, which has a usb hard drive with all my music. changed the settings for music folder to point to my hard drive folder.
when i click on "scan media folders", it shows the number of files found in the right panel which keeps increasing (i have a lot of files) till about 13,000 and then abruptly disappears. Nothing shows up in the index, or any of the "Playing" tabs, except for decades and genres being populated. But not a single file shows up.
Any ideas on what i can try?

Trying to follow the guidelines for help request.

The Raspberry needs much power during scanning, REAL 2,1A is mandatory, it is getting very hot during that time AND because the SD Card reading and writing at the same time it needs a long time. The Raspi2B+ didn't fit my needs and the 3B+ Version I didn't try .... may be I will try the 4 Version in future.

Another possible fault is the Timeout for USB Drives, it is to short

echo program_usb_timeout=1 | sudo tee -a /boot/config.txt

sudo nano /boot/config.txt
and add this line

may be thats already the trick, but as suggested check the temperature during scan, even if you have a small heatsink. Open the Lid of the case, thats sometimes enough. Mine is always open and I have a big case because HifiBerry DAC is connected

Let us hear what happened

Never mind. Had to go to reddit to find the solution.
For some weird reason, under "users", the "has access to folders" was unchecked.
as soon as i checked it, all files showed up.
