Force Twonky to reindex

Post by Skarsnick » Fri Jan 06, 2012 12:04 pm

Hi every one,
First of all, sorry for my English, it's not my mother tongue.

I have a small issue with Twonky (version 4.4.18, I have to deal with this old version)

Tonky is running on my gateway (Linux OS), I have a computer linked by eth to this gateway, and a USB-key on this gateway (with media inside)
When I switch on my system, there is no issue, I can read my media file with a DLNA client on my computer.
But when i umount my key, and plug it again, my media cannot be reach.

If I kill and reboot Twonky, I can access to them again,
(got LOG_SYSTEM: reading ini file: "/usr/local/mediaserver/twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini". message)
but is there any solution to force Twonky to reindex the files ?
I would like to avoid to reboot twonky each time I unplug a USB hard drive.

Thx !

I don't know of a solution for TwonkyServer 4.4. I think this might be better if you use TwonkyServer 6.0. I know you said that may not be possible. Maybe someone else has a better suggestion.
