Ghost Folder on DLNA players

Postby darloal » Wed Oct 26, 2011 10:05 am

Hi,

I have delete a folder on my DS. However in the Diskstation - Video folder on any DLNA player in the house the folder is still there. I've re-searched for media servers so the files on the DLNA players update the content they show, but the file won't disappear.

If I click in the folder in question it opens up the ALL the videos that were there.
When I click on one of the videos from a PS3 I get this message;
"The folder could not accessed. The content may have been deleted from the media server."

I know it has - as I deleted it! How do I get rid of this "ghost" folder so it doesn't show?

Thanks in advance.

Did you set a "symbolic link"?
If you did, you need to delete it. Just deleting the folder doesn't work.

I'm getting the same problem on XBMC, WDTV Live and PS3. Old folders that I know I've deleted as when I go through DSM or Windows explorer on PC (W7)they do not appear. Has anybody had any experience with this and can you suggest any methods to remove these "ghost" folders/files

Thanks,
Dave

Just had the same problem. I fixed it by moving the hole content of VIDEO to a new directory and backwards.
And WOW, the ghostfolders/files are gone :-)
