    Experiencing new problem

    I'm running version 1.0.1.0
    I use Win 10 File Explorer to fix any file names on the DMS
    Within the last week File Explorer for the DMS is not working correctly
    When I open the MS DVDFAB Movie directory it tries to do a refresh of the directory list
    In the file path window left of the search window a green bar starts from the left and goes right. It goes on for a very long time.
    During this time the the directory items count continues to increase, I let it run for quite a while once and the count was over 24 million and locked up.
    Depending on how long I let that green bar refresh go it is listing every director in movies multiple times. I stopped it after a few seconds and I had 95 listings for 2 Guns.
    I let it run for 30 seconds and there were now 333 listings for 2 Guns,

    This is not happening for any other directory on my system. Tried it on a different USB attached disk with no issues
    I have tried a few health checks of my system and all comes up clean.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Update: I removed the internal disk of the DMS and looked through some of the directories.
    In path Android/share/sda/sda2/DVDFAB/Movies
    This has a list of all the directories I have on this internal disk and the same thing happens when I display it.
    Multiple entries for each directory depending on how long I let it run
    I would like to delete this directory but I'm not sure of the consequences

    That is how I access it. I mapped the DVDFAB folder then pinned it for quick access.

    As a follow-up I moved this movie to the video folder. Now it shows up as a poster but doesn't interfere with the movie folder

    Just had the same thing happen again with the movie GOLDSTONE.
    Not sure if this a DVDFAB issue or what is going on but after using DVDFAB 11.0.1.5 Main Movie copy to the DMS I couldn't use Win10 file explorer again
    for the movie directory

    Personally I wish they would get on to android 7. My other android streamer has it and it was major improvement!

    forstatd...it is an alpha version...not beta. I think it was only available to the insiders group and other select users.

    BTW, I see some post from users that mentioned a DMS update version 1.0.3.8?? Where can I download that for my DMS?

    Wow, I had the exact problem as Hunter1955. Windows file explorer showed I had thousands of movies on my 8TB drive in my DMS, running 1.0.3.7 Struggled for weeks until I finally figured out that one TV show was causing the issue (a slow process process of elimination).. it was one episode of season 3, "Fargo". Once I removed it from my DMS it is now back to normal.

    My DMS is now building the Library at 1.0.3.8
    I noticed a circle at the top right of my screen with a shoulder and head icon in it. It also had a small x on it.
    I did a relogin, the x went away and the Library started building. Of course I cannot create my own collections but I'm going to see how everything else works before reverting to 1.0.1.0

    Update:
    Moved the newer movies from the Movies directory to the Video directory and my original problem went away.
    Started moving them back one at a time until one movie brought the problem back, Deleted that movie and all seems fine now.
    Still no library info on the DMS at 1.0.3.8 but that's another problem

    Did an upgrade to 1.0.3.8
    No change to my original problem. Now it says my Library is empty. Tried an update with no change.
    Tried a rebuild with no change. Tried Clearing cache and data from advance settings. Nothing in Library and my original problem is still there.
    Going to wait a while and reload 1.0.1.0 and hope my Library comes back.

It would seem to me that would reveal if it was an OS problem or even the sdcard itself. I don't know a lot about Android and how it manages its file table, or if it even has one.

    Do the "ghost" entries have all the same properties as the regular file like size, date created and so on? Maybe try renaming one of the files that has a lot of duplicate copies and see if the OS updates all the "Ghost" files or creates new ghost files with the new file name.
    All the files are identical. When I change one they all change.
    I just tried reinstalling 1.0.1.0 with no change. Upgrading was my planned next step. I'll update here after trying that.
