I also just tried to do a music folderscan from my nas.
And now all my music is gone from the DB.

I can acces the NAS where it's stored.
But how can i figure out "what" folder / song is giving me the problem with the "longer" than 260 Char issue that has been seen before (if this is the case).

    The following might work:

    (1) Map the share that contains your music on the NAS as a Windows drive; let's call it drive "n:".

    (2) On Windows, open a command-line window.

    (3) Use the following command:

    dir n:\*.* /b /s >nas.txt

    (4) Browse the file "nas.txt" and look for the longest line.

    I am not entirely sure that this will identify the file with the overlong name, but it might indicate the folder or folders that you need to review for long file names.
