Correct, im talking about the watch folder feature.
Now, when I launch vox, it is scanning all the files. I can see the
progress bar and the number of pending files is growing. I can also see the
tracks that have just been uploaded in the new Unknown Artsist sections,
one by file format. And yes, the metadata from those files were previously
read correctly and yes they are not anymore. Agree with you it doesn't make
sense but still, this is the behavior I observe. I will provide screenshots
Yes it is. It is backed up by Insync and it didn't have any issues after
the fs switch. It scanned everything and declared everything was up to
date. Which makes me think the fs conversion didn't tamper with the files
in any way. You can see the file names on the second screenshot
Unfortunately, we can't guarantee its stable work with Google Drive or similar services, because some low-level file system events might overlap between such apps. In that case, theoretically, it could start uploading over. I can just recommend not using such (synced with multiple apps) folders.
We can try to investigate the problem with untitled artists if you'll provide few samples.
After waiting for a while, it doesn't look like it is creating duplicates. It uploads again but it seems files are being matched on the server. Is the matching happening server side after a file is being uploaded ?
Oh ok. So does it mean I just wasted 495gb of data to check a md5 checksum
server side rather than client side? Please tell me there is something more
happening on the server side for the tracks to be "matched". Something that
couldn't be done client side. I am living in the US where most ISP do meter
data usage and cap it monthly before charging very hefty fees. So using
495gb for literally nothing is kind of a big problem.
