[Help!] Media in folder disappeared?

server-mac

#1

Hey guys,

I had a weird issue when I woke up this morning. I had media streaming before falling asleep, and when I woke up, I was unable to resume it. I checked everything and it seems all of the media in the folder is gone and deleted.

I'm not sure how this happened or what to do next ?!

if it's a tv show... did you enable episode/recording deletion after watching an episode?
check out that tv show's settings (Edit > Advanced > Keep ... and Edit > Advanced > Delete after watching...).


#3

Nope, I've never had that enabled! Everything seemed to have just disappeared / and all my tv shows are deleted :-(


#4

you could check out the server logs if there's anything since you fell asleep that indicates Plex deleted those files. do you have any other apps/processes "cleaning up" your system?

I hope you had created a backup of your media...
