Subsonic doesn't remove deleted files from database

Running latest Subsonic on a VPS with a Google Drive mounted using rclone. It works fine so far, except if I delete a file from the Google Drive folder, the file remains in the Subsonic database even after re-scanning the library and cleaning-up.

I've checked the file system and the file no longer shows up at its original location, so the Google Drive change was propagated on the server successfully.

I've also added the folder containing the "ghost" file as an additional Media Folder in Subsonic, re-scanned, cleaned-up. But when I go to the Index browser, now the extra folder shows up, containing the "ghost" file again.

When I try to play the "ghost" file, of course nothing happens.

Please let me know what tests I can do to provide additional useful information. Thanks!


Trying to download the "ghost" file, produces an html file with this error:

Code: Select all

I am encountering exactly the same problem. It's something of a show stopper and I'm fearful that the only way to delete the titles from the database is to completely uninstall Subsonic and re-install it. Perhaps there is a way to edit the data in the database, but I have no idea where that is or how to edit it.

Well not necessarily reinstall Subsonic. It's enough to remove the Library folders and re-add them.

But considering that re-indexing takes several hours, it's very impractical. Unfortunately there seems to be no way to get support... :(
