Description Of Issue
First time user: Import of iTunes library went fine, even without using any of the iTunes otl files etc. The directory structure and filenames and metadata from around 9500 ALAC files were indexed correctly (as far as I know, I just finished checking the As and Bs).
Next, I added some Bandcamp purchases, also downloaded as ALAC, but otherwise not touched by iTunes. Upon forcing a rescan of my NAS storage location, Roon found three out of five. One of the successful ones is a pre-order with only a single file, while one of the unsuccessful ones is a full album. I read that too small collections could be of influence, but that doesn’t seem to be the issue.
EDIT: I just realized that the successful additions were by artists that were already in the database, so their new directories were added to an existing ‘artist name’ top directory. The unsuccessful ones were added as artist/album/song.m4a in the top level of the watched directory.
What is the best way to move forward? I’ve read about simple steps like “Clean Up Library” and “Restarting the Roon core” to very involved schemes like “move the unsuccessful dirs out, clean up, move them back, force rescan” etc.
Thanks for any hints,
