I’m a new lifetime subscriber. I’ve got Roon server running on my Mac, and the files on a NAS available as an SMB share. It seems to have imported my music, but I was wondering if there’s a way to find any tracks that haven’t been identified, or haven’t imported at all?
When I force a rescan of the SMB folder (which I have to do when I add music), I see 60914 tracks imported but about 75000 files scanned. I can’t believe I have 14000 non-audio files, so just concerned that some music might have failed to import. Is there a way to find out exactly what is going on?
Hi @wintoid ----- Thank you for the report and my apologies for the slow response here. Can you verify for me if the folder you are adding in Roon has any other content in it besides music? The reason I ask is because when Roon scans files, it scans ALL of them and will only import the content that is either the media itself or content related to the media (i.e artwork).
For some more tips on why content may not be appearing in Roon, you can check out our KnowledgeBase article focusing on imported content.
Eric, as a point of clarification, are subdirectories within the watched folder included in the scanned file count? For most collections, that would increase the scan tally by several hundred to several thousand.
No worries about speed of support. It’s no huge rush, just wanted to be sure it had been heard.
At the very least, Bliss will have popped one cover art JPG into each album folder. Sometimes I have accompanying PDFs and so on. I’ll do an audit soon of all the files, but I’d be surprised if I had 15k non-audio files.
Does Roon produce a log which can show me what it struggled to import?
Hi @wintoid ---- Thank you for the follow up and sharing your observations with us.
In regard to your question…
“I’d still like to know if there’s a log file for anything that couldn’t imports.”
1.3 will be released soon, and will offer a list of content Roon was unable to import. Be advised that this will only cover files that Roon tried (and failed) to import. Files that Roon doesn’t support, or files Roon wasn’t able to scan (like when there’s a network path/naming issue) will not be included in the report.
