    I have some issues with imports.
    Sometime, when I do a new import, it doesn't come up any new episodes in the import list, even if I just added a few new files in my scanned dirs.
    After that, I try again, same result.
    But when I go to "details", all info on local files are gone, and all episodes are greyed out.
    As you can see from the attached screenshot, "Local Filename" is empty. And if you see in the log (Got SQL logging turned on), you can see that the importer executed a SQL that dropped that episode from the table "local_episodes".
    The SQL was executed for every episode I had, 447 of them.
    Now I have to remove everything again from database, and import all 447 episodes again.
    This have happened about 5-6 times the last month. That's why I had SQL loggning turned on.
    Also attached a zip with my log, from when this happened.

    I think I did it in this order:
    1. Copied 3 new episodes into the right directories.
    2. Started config tool
    3. Open import tab, clicked "start import wizard". Realized that it didn't get any hits on the 3 new files.
    4. Clicked "cancel".
    5. Clicked "start import wizard" again. Realized I got 0 hits again.
    6. Did NOT click cancel, but clicked on the tab "Details".
    7. Everything is gone.

    I don't know during which step the SQL for deleting was run.
    But hopefully, the logs can tell you that.

    Re: Problems with importing, deleting all local filenames.

    It is possible that I clicked next and finished the import, even if I had 0 hits on new episodes, the second time I tried to import new episodes.

    Re: Importing deletes all local filenames on EVERY episode

    It is happening again.
    At the moment, when I press "Start Import Wizard", the list turns up empty, even if I've added several new episodes to the scanned directories. It doesn't matter if I restart or anything. The list turns up empty.

    I've now taken a backup of "TVSeriesDatabase4.db3", where I now think the problem lies.
    I haven't changed any settings or anything. The only thing I ever do is to import new episodes.

    Now I have tested it.
    First I pressed "Start Import Wizard"
    The list turns up empty for some unknown reason, but I think it's in the database or the software or both.
    Once I press "Next" after that, it deletes "Local FileName" on EVERY episode.


    I've attached a copy of my datasbase this time. It's in a state where you can just go to import and start the wizard.
    Every TV-serie is stored under the path "X:\TV-series", like "X:\TV-series\Dexter", "X:\TV-series\Criminal Minds".
    X:\ is the harddrive on my NAS. I've made sure the drive is not "sleeping" when I try this. I tested to run an episode from it before I started the wizard, just to make sure.

    I have now restored the database from the backup.
    I still get no hits on import wizard, but atleast I have every Local FileName still.

    Everytime this happens, I need to delete every episode and start all over again. Extremely annoying.

    I hope it'll get some attention now, from the developers.
