Date Added is Wrong on All Movies

DarellCraigheadDarellCraighead Posts: 10Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I upgraded Plex today to the current version and now every movie in my collection says Date Added is "a day ago" which is obviously not correct. Is this a bug in the new version? Is there a fix?

    I am not seeing what you see.

    I would try restoring the database from a previous recent version and then update the Libraries.

    How would I do that? Are backups done automatically? What is the process? Why is it my problem to fix something an update broke?

    The reason, though for this issue to occur might still be present.
    You better DISABLE this checkbox:
    Settings - Server - Library - 'Empty trash automatically after every scan'

    Well even more bad news - it appears when I migrated from running Plex on my Synology NAS to my CentOS server the backups stopped backing up. I believe the "default" path needed to have escape "\" characters in the setting maybe? Here's the content of the directory. It is interesting I have recent backups of blobs, but not the DB?

    Any way for me to recover here?

    Probably not. If the database backups ended up in the digital orcus, there is no way to go back.
