Today, as usual, I used my iPad to look for some music to be played. I used the search button and typed in the name of my favourite composer (Dmitri Chostakovitch) and could only find one album, when I own several tenths of them.
I then looked at the library and it only contained 945 albums when I used to have more than 5000. I checked that the NAS volume was still mounted, and it was not when Audirvana was up and running.
I restarted Audirvana and checked that the volume was mounted: yes, it was. I restart the synchronisation and this time it retrieved all my 5000+ albums.
I suspect that I lost the network connection with the NAS during the import and thus it was not complete. But there are things which I find rather strange:
1/ If a network failure occurs and connection with the mounted volume is lost, why is it that Audirvana does not inform the user through an error message?
2/ If such event appears in the middle of the process, why is it that several albums are removed from the library?
Thanks for your help in understanding this. I have to admit I’m a bit lost…
