I have just recently started using watchdog plugin. What could be the reason that watchdog is not triggered when I delete or move folders or files from my media location? Just fyi it detects new files or folders without any problem. My library is stored on an external USB drive mounted on boot (before XBMC is started). I use XBMC Gotham on Ubuntu 14.04. Option to clean the library on file move or delete is checked.

Thanks for any help.

I just want to add some more info here. I enabled logging in XBMC and there is no action logged from the watchdog addon when I MOVE files from source to another directory (not a media source for XBMC). When files are deleted or files are added the addon is triggered and library is updated as it should be and it is visible in the log. Anyone maybe had simmilar problems?

Best regards

There is one known issue on linux (only) with the 'auto' method. It can't detect when files are moved from a watched directory to the outside. Deletions can be detected. Note that "move to trash" is not deleting a file but moving it to the outside trash folder so that might be it. Fixing this is a major task because of more fundamental issue I wont go into detail to here. Most of it should be done by now though.

When will a new version be ready?
Of watchdog? You should be using v0.8.1 from the official add-on repo.

I have tried searching to the issue I am having. I have turned on the option to auto clean the DB when files are deleted. I have had the following issue a couple of times. If I have XBMC running and I restart my samba service on the NAS, watchdog deletes all of the movies....

Is this something anyone else has experienced? Basically I am assuming when it loses connectivity to the share, it assumes the files are gone and does a cleanup?

Any help would be appreciated

Hello, I have been using this great addon for a few months and I love it! Today I updated XBMC to 13.2 from 13.1 and watchdog stopped working. Even though I didn't change any setting. I tried reinstalling, but to no avail.
Is there anything I can try to check if it's working? Is it possible that the service isn't running any more? I'm running Windows 8.1 x64.
Thank you all.

Edit: It now seems to work, sorry for bothering and thanks Big Grin
