Prune Removed Media

I have a pretty large imported library of TV Shows. (Old recordings, commercials cut)

I use the "Prune Removed Media" feature about twice per day, keeping things tidy, however over the last few days I notice that hitting the "Prune Removed Media" feature starts to delete EVERY imported item, as if they aren't there. I can play the recordings once they "Import" themselves back in, so I know Channels can see the directories.

For now I've restored from a backup Database, and I'm not Pruning anymore.

I'm using Beta 2024.02.10.0353. Has anyone else seen this? Is it doing this for everyone now? Is there a quick solution?


Looking into it now.

Wow! That was fast! If it helps, the Import folder is in the DVR folder on an internal drive. It's not a mapping, or network share. (Channels DVR is running on Windows)

@Lawreb An update should be out in the next 20 minutes that resolves this issue. Sorry you ran into this and thank you for reporting it!

Prune is removing all playon content as well.
@eric had to restore from backup to get Playon content back into channels but also end up with a double entry on the one movie in imports.
Am on the latest pre-release also.

Please submit diagnostics and give me the ID.

Update: I was able to identify what was going on with PlayOn and a fix should be released in the next 20 minutes

Don't know if you still need this but here are diags 27d9bbe5-cf7d-44b9-a5de-d1e4e49b7db1
grabbing the new pre-release will report back.

Thank you for the quick fix as usual. All is working as expected now.

Fix is released.

@TerryD thanks for the report.

Feedback: So far, so good. It was behaving a bit weird for a while, but maybe it was busy indexing or something and kicked all clients and Remote Desktop sessions out for several minutes, several times.

Very strange. I don't know what would have caused any impact to Remote Desktop or anything like that.

It could be doing the pruning caused a lot of disk IO that impacted your computer. Running Troubleshooting with the Resource Intensive tests will let you know if you're having any disk issues.
