I run Medusa (a TV downloader) on a Chinese NUC clone running Ubuntu server and it copies new media files over to pooled NFS shares on my NAS (specs below) and generates metadata files on the fly. Been doing it this way for years, firstly on QNAP and later OMV4 and now OMV 5.
Recently Medusa started to delete a whole folder's metadata files but it left the media files intact. No big deal they can be recoveded by SnapRAID or recreated with Tiny Media Manager. I can't say with certainty but I think this started when I moved to OMV 5 - does this version handle NFS shares and/or MergerFS drive pool mounts any differently?
I posted in the Medusa Github forum: https://github.com/pymedusa/Medusa/issues/8022.
Advice - if Medusa does not see the media files it deletes the related metadata files.
NFS shares were thought the culprit and I was referred to this article: https://stackoverflow.com/ques…irectory-file-that-exists
Naturally I'd like to prevent this - any ideas?
