Existing folder/files are missing after manually copied


#1

My Lighthouse had only one folder inside the Community Uploads folder,

Community Uploads/UMass

I copied two folders with files from http://obereip.selfhost.de/ to my Lighthouse.

Community Uploads/2016_02_16/*.*
Community Uploads/2016_02_18/*.*

Then I attched the external hard drive again and restarted the receiver. Then I noticed the folder “Community Uploads/UMass” missing on my librarian interface.

But files are physically there.

EDIT:
Also all the Khan Academy folders and files are missing.


#2

The table ‘fsentries’ contains all the entries for both existing and missing files such as UMass/.

fs=# select * from fsentries where path LIKE '%Community Uploads%';

How to reproduce this issue.

  1. Turn off the Lighthouse.
  2. Unplug the external HDD and connect it to the Computer.
  3. Copy new folder/file
  4. Un-mount the drive from PC
  5. Unplug it from PC
  6. Plug it to the Lighthouse
  7. Power on Lighthouse
  8. Immediately try to connect with the Lighthouse using the web browser
  9. The 3 rd LED blinks 3 or 4 times for new client connection
  10. You could see some or more empty folders (missing files) in the Files section.

This will not happen if you log in to the Lighthouse after 5-10 mins.


#4

The delay that you see is because the Lighthouse indexes storage drives when they are attached. Depending on number of files & folders present, it might take some while before the new content is detected.
