Music Library stuck with 50% for deleting entries for non-exitent files

Hi support,

I use the database often and as in the past after renaming or removing or adding files I order the Music Libraby
1. add new files by folder
2. delete entries non-exitent files.
This is the moment when cleanup stucks at 50% (https://gyazo.com/f3eba6f9de68aa5aafd737e33fafe724)

2nd question is that the function "add files from folder" takes ages on big folders. From my perspective its not the adding files procedure but the mp3-tags are being checked on files that are already existing??

Kind regards,
Michael

I suppose you just need to wait for it to finish.

It checks if the tag was modified (checking the file write date), and if it changed, it also reads the tag.

If you need to synchronize database with the folder, it's easier to use the automatic library update: click Tools->Schedule library update in the music library, this will create an event to update (and, optionally, process) the music library. Then you will be able to run the event (using the Run Now button) when you need to update the library, and if you like let the event run periodically to update automatically.
