Mystery directories on Rescan
Dear folk

I hope this is relevant for this forum, but I am sure someone here will know the answer.

I have a mystery. A couple of days ago I was backing up my flac collection to my spare NAS, QNAP TS112. I was using the Mac Automator routine. Used it scores of times.

The process crashed because it found that the hard disk on the NAS was full.

So I deleted other stuff on my NAS making lots of room. I reran the routine and all went well. All files present and correct and Minim works fine.

But when I come to do a rescan I get log showing all the correct directories for all the CDs, but about halfway through I get scores of directories recorded as:

Scanning directory 03080000000000004183880200000000

There are seemingly hundreds more.
I have searched for these directories using my Mac Finder on the hard drive, and can find nothing. (In hidden mode too). Neither do they show up on control software in folder mode (like Kazoo, Lumin).

I have deleted the group of files in the Minimserver directory on my Nas, and rerun everything. Still there!

What is going on??

RE: Mystery directories on Rescan
It sounds like these directories were created by Mac Automator before it crashed. Because they don't contain audio files, they don't show up in MinimServer folder view. It would be a good idea to delete them as they will slightly slow down the MinimServer scan. Can you see them if you open File Station on the QNAP?
