Unselected files not deleting upon wifi sync

Post by TroubleClef »

When I delete files from playlist in MMW, they aren't deleted from MMA device upon wifi sync. I have these settings enabled in MMW device profile.

Deleted from Playlist or also from the MediaMonkey Library? Are you sure the files aren't part of another sync selection?

Yeah they still exist in the MMW library. And I only have one playlist set to sync to the device, and that's the playlist I deleted the tracks from in MMW.

Are you sure you only have that 1 Playlist (no other selections like Collections or sub-sets of Collections like Genres, etc selected for Sync?

It generally turns out that either the files were still selected or that the delete settings were wrong.

Do you have the "delete unselected device contect" checkboxes set in MMA (not MMW)?
Options => Sync Setting => storage => ...

It's the same setting. Changing settings in MMA changes the settings in MMW where the Device Profile is stored.

Yeah it's only the one playlist that I can see selected, no other collections or playlists selected in the MMW device profile.

To the point of the delete settings in MMA, I see there are three possible boxes to check in Options => Sync Setting => storage =>
"Auto-sync device content", "Delete unselected content copies", "Delete all unselected content"

Of those three, only the second is currently checked. I don't recall ever changing these settings and deleting unselected files had worked up to now, but is the problem related to one of these other boxes being un-checked?

In MMW device profile I have selected "Delete other files and playlists from the device: Unselected library files" in the device tab. In the Library tab I have selected "Auto-sync file metadata from the device to the PC"

Thanks

So if the MMA settings I listed above aren't an issue, what next?
