I found a bug in anki desktop.
Tools menu > check media , when media was checked there are two kind of files :
Type 1) The following files are referenced by cards, but were not found in the media folder.
Type 2)The following files were found in the media folder, but do not appear to be used on any cards.
so lets check the files.
Type 1 Files:
So anki is telling me there are alot of files missing .
lets search two files for example: first August.mp3 and second glove.mp3
As a new member i allowed to upload just one picture. i combine all pictures to one , so you can see picture below.
As you saw , all the files mentioned by anki is exists in database folder.
so time’s to check Type 2 Files :
So anki is telling me there are alot of files unused.
lets search two files for example: first Friends-S01E02 (100).JPG and second Friends-S01E02 (101).JPG
As you saw , all the files mentioned by anki is used in the cards.
So what happens if i delete the files that anki calls unused or missing.
something awful happens , this media will be delete from my cards and i can’t see the media.
the issue happens for *.mp3 and *.jpg and *.png in the two types files that i already mentioned.
so i called a bug. i hope it will be fixed.
