Question: What happens when file is moved ?
« on: May 21, 2009, 03:33:28 »
Let us consider this scenario:
After Similarity finishes 1st scan of the entire library we get this duplicate pair
  C:\folderA\song1.mp3
  C:\folderB\song2.mp3

it turns out that  song2.mp3  was really supposed to be in  C:\folderA
so i move it there with WinExplorer.

What happens when I run Similarity again (without clearing the cache) ?

Will Similarity remove C:\folderB\song2.mp3 from cache ?  and insert  C:\folderA\song2.mp3 ?

this file will be used in scanning process, in the new versions will be another mechanism of cache working and his visual view.

Another words ->  for now (in ver.82) we should not move files around ?

yes, or you need to clean cache after moving.

Oh,  poop.    Cleaning the cache in 0.82 will get rid of my 600+ IGNOREs accumulated so far ......  right ?
The pain.   While you are working on the new caching mechanism/structure (http://www.music-similarity.com/forum/index.php?action=vthread&forum=2&topic=81) perhaps separate the IGNOREs out somehow, so that the user can Retain or Discard them when the base cache is wiped.    Best of all if there would be a small management sub-screen (add,modify,delete) for the IGNOREs ,  but that is I realize a wish-list item.
thnx again
Doing a great job.
I can not emphasize enough that this software is very appreciated, so I am more then happy to give feedback.
