Twonky Media Server not recursing into subdirectories

Post by vonedaddy » Sat Sep 29, 2012 5:20 am

I have a directory structure for my movies like:

/drobo/Videos/Movies/Horror/Classic/1980/

When twonky scans it finds everything up to the classic directory but it will not go into 1980. If I share 1980 directory it finds all the files.

Any idea why? Is there a limit on subdirectories?

Im running 7.1.1 for linux on Fedora 17.

Are any of those folders symbolic links?

If yes, there is a setting in the twonkyserver.ini
to turn on following of symbolic links

No and what I found out is if I change the view from folder to advanced it finds all the files.
