    Will a database compact clear out all of the old entries in the database and also remove the old image files?

    A database compact will not remove the old entries. Running maintenance with the option to update all files and update images selected will replace the existing images with new images and also update the paths in the database.

    Even though the old images are now orphaned due to "bad pathing"?

    Yes, Mezzmo can only track these files using the path in the database so if the path is not correct in the database Mezzmo has no way of removing orphaned files. Most of the files will be overwritten when new images are downloaded from the internet as the naming of the poster is based upon the source or the media file it is for.

    Peter.... New question related to this replacement.

    So I did the Maintain Library and it seemed to do everything that it needed to do to update the individual files. But folders that weren't explicitly set with images just show a paper with a star in the middle of it image. How do I get those to update with something from the contents of their folders like they were before the system replacement?

    Thank you.

    When you browse into the folder either in Mezzmo on the PC or via the server from a device then Mezzmo will updated the folder thumbnail. There is also a background thread that will update the folder thumbnail. Please check in Metadata Retrieval Settings to make sure the option to create artwork based upon the contents of folders/playlists is checked http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...val_settings&s[]=metadata&s[]=retrieval#create_artwork_based_on_contents_of_fol der_playlist

    Yep. That was checked when the Maintain Library was ran. It still didn't update the folder icon with the contents of the folder.

    The thumbnail is not updated as part of the Maintain library but as a separate background process which runs all the time at low priority.

    The new system has been running now for about a week and a half or two weeks and none of them are updated. How long is it going to take?

    I should note that newly created folders are getting updated with thumbnails just fine.
