when new items are added to my network shares they are correctly picked up and added to the library.
over time, as I watch content, I actually delete it from the network shares (not via Infuse) to free up space.
the undesired behavior happens when the following library update occurs : the metadata about the (now deleted) content remains intact and not only it clutters and inflates the library, but it also confuses user (i.e. - my wife/daughter) that said content is “there” when in fact it is long gone.
what makes the above more confusing - occasionally some of the deleted content would “disappear” from the library in a complete random way.
I am using the Pro 5 subscription on iPhone / iPad / ATV (all exhibiting same behavior) and using both iCloud sync as well as Trakt.
Unfortunately this isn’t fixed in V6. This has been my biggest issue for a long time. When I delete files from my NAS, they remain in the infuse library, also after a new scan. After I delete the metadata (settings > General > metadata), the library is rebuilt and the deleted items are gone. Rebuilding the library takes a long time, so this isn’t the desired behavior by a long shot.
This happens on all my devices.
A reinstall doesn’t help.
Adding the shares (SMB3 on a Synology NAS) again doesn’t help.
another bit of info after tinkering with it some more on the various devices -
seems like the automated scan on application launch doesn’t do the actual cleanup.
BUT - if you initiate a manual “Scan For Changes” from within the settings Library panel - it actually works.
this is odd because one would assume that these are identical actions which are simply triggered differently
seems like the issue has reappeared…
had 2 seasons of Broad City (with 10 episodes each), scanned and showed correctly.
after deleting 1 complete season and some episodes of the other, they are still in the library despite both auto and manual library update scans.
as mentioned before - Windows Server 2016 as file store, fully updated, and Infuse 6.0.2
