    I faced a problem yesterday and i am not sure if it is a bug or not.
    On my file server i had to change the name of a mapped drive from movies to movies2. The i relaunched MovingPictures and saddly i had lost everything on Movies. Moving Pictures then rescanned about 300 movies which wasnt so bd in fact. The problem is that i lost all my watch flags!

    So my question is "is moving files supposed to be supported?"
    If not i ll had a feature request on the project.

    But if it is not it really should be in for 0.8

    And if it is already supported do you have any idea on what might have happened.
    I can reproduce it everytime, and the saddest thing is that i quickly tried to remap movies3 to movies but it was too late, everything was lost.
    Couldnt we have a time (like 7 days) where a missing item stays hidden in the database, and after 7 days -> delete.
    That way it would help during NAS maintenance or hard drive problems.

    What do you think?

    I think that there is already a request on the Google Code page for this. As far as I remember it is scheduled for the next release, but it may have been pushed back.

    I think this is a Must-Have feature also.
