This is a stupid question....I know it's a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway because this is driving me crazy.
I have an Rsync job that runs on my RPI4 every night and connects to my other computer (Windows 10 laptop) hosting my iTunes music.. It's been working great.
However, I've noticed something odd....if I look inside the various music folders of my Win10 laptop all I see are .mp3 and .m4a files. When I look at the folders on the OMV RPI that Rsync writes to I see the same files but I also see desktop.ini, folder.jpg, AlbumArt.jpg. files.
Before anyone asks....yes, I'm sure those files don't exist on the Windows 10 laptop side (I have view hidden files, show files extension selected).
I have two guesses as to what may be causing this but I'd really appreciate feedback if anyone else has seen this.
1. I have "Preserve Extended Attributes" selected on the OMV Rsync job and it's reading the embedded tag info from the .mp3/.m4a files and recreating those attributes on the OMV disk
2. When my Sonos soundbar connects to the OMV share it populates the directories with these .jpg/.ini files
These are just guesses but do I win a prize if any of them are correct? Has anyone else seen this?
