This happened yesterday.
Before that, my metadata didn’t have any issue in the past 3 years, local metadata size is about 800MB - 1GB. iCloud Sync is on, about the same size on iCloud Drive.
Yesterday almost 50% of artworks were disappeared when I was browsing the movie folders, right before my eyes. I tried to fix the artworks by editing metadata again, most of time I got exact same Poster as before… After spent more than an hour to fix some titles, I noticed local metadata size increased to 2GB. So I stopped. I turned off iCloud Sync, deleted Infuse’s data from iCloud Drive, Cleared local metadata, re-added all favourites and folders. I tried to rebuild the metadata from scratch.
It was a very tedious process as I have a large amount of collections, and different favourite has different metadata language (I requested the feature for metadata language setting for individual favourite for years but didn’t get any feedback on that). I had to keep changing metadata language setting and add/scan/complete favourites. After another 4 hours, the metadata rebuild is almost done, local metadata size is about 2GB now, 100% bigger than before. I then turned on iCloud Sync, but Infuse only uploaded 30MB files to iCloud Drive… Why it is so different from previous iCloud Sync? Can’t just upload everything to iCloud Drive? You can’t assume those posters are always available on TMDB or TVDB.
BTW, during the time when I rebuilt metadata, Infuse crashed a couple of times.
Such a terrible experience.
