Plex Server re-adding hundreds of movies that have been untouched in my library for months

addingnumbersaddingnumbers Posts: 20Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

When I brought up Plex today, I noticed 283 out of my 1413 movies show as added today.

Frustratingly, it's replaced much of the poster art with hideous selections cluttered with tiny print or foreign titles or both.

The files haven't been moved or renamed. The server hasn't been restarted for days. The watched statuses are fine.

How do I go about figuring out what caused this?

Is there a way to revert these to the previous metadata? I have a backup of the "Application Support/Plex Media Server" directory - it's several months old but most of these movies were added long before that.
