Rescan for videos and pictures does not add new items to db

Oh, OK.
In the new db, I actually added the folder first - not to scan folders, but a regular video folder. That was when it added about 100 videos and a lot of images. Then I added that same folder to the scan folders and rescanned.

I also tried moving a portion of the files to another external drive and import them into a new db. That one was successful - meaning it added all of the copied files to the db.
So I guess there is something on the first drive that seems to abort the scan at some point. My guess is that there is possibly a corrupted file or files causing this - but it's not at the file system level, rather internally in the video file that the program does not understand properly - as there is nothing in the windows event viewer at the time of scanning.
Unfortunately I do not have a large enough second drive to copy all of the content elsewhere, so I am not sure how to troubleshoot this further. Maybe some error logging in the app would help.

I just noticed this thread. I thought I was the only one with this scanning for new files issue. I first noticed it after installing version

I normally have about 2000 video files ignored when I do a scan for new videos. Now I get right around 90 every time, but it's always different.
If I turn off "rescan subfolders recursively" it's always exactly 151 files ignored (which is the correct number of video files in the root folder).

It does seem to work correctly if I remove the root folder from the scan and manually add all of the subfolders.

All files are on a Hard Drive, no USB.

I ended up not adding anything new to that folder anymore and creating a new one, which has been working.
I just assumed I had too many files in one folder.

Still not able to reproduce the issue.
I analyzed the code and improved some parts that could lead to similar issues (theoretically).

The new version seems to be working correctly for me. Thanks!

That fixed it for me. After the initial scan scans seem to also run a lot faster. You're great!
