Neutronplayer doesn`t remove tracks from file-system

Post by Lupex » Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:51 am

Hi!
I got a problem.
I got very large audio folders (up to 400 tracks).
I listen to them in my garden.
I`d like to remove tracks after listening to them from the audio folder - and afterwards like to syncronize the audio folder to my laptop at home, so that there all removed tracks are removed too.

BUT: Neutro Player doesnt`t remove the tracks from the file system, just from the Neutron Player menu.

Is there anything I can do to change this?

Bye
Ralf

Could you provide a screenshot of the removal dialog ? Is the "Delete" button missing or does it fail ?

Another question : as this is a rather unusual method that you use to listen to your songs : what's the point of filling a folder with songs and then deleteing them after having listened ? It might be easier to create a playlist or use the queue.

Hi!
Sure, there is the removal dialog and I select "Delete from file system"

I usethis way because I listen in my garden to music that I have recorded from Internetradio, becaus I don`t have www-access in my garden.
When I listen to the songs/one audio folder (about 400 songs) I can`t remember at the end of the day, which songs I`d like to remove.
I just want to listen and decide: keep or remove.

I thought it would have worked by using the Neutron Player menu, but I discovered today, by checking it with my Laptop, that all removed songs are still there.
I can see them on my Smartphone (Xiaomi Redmi Note 7) even with my "Dateimanager" /Data/FileExplorer

Do you see the files on your phone in the Dateimanager before or after the synchronization with the PC ?
That is, are you sure it's not the synchronization that re-adds the files from the PC to the phone after you have successfully removed them via neutron from there ?

I haven`t synchronized yet.
I wanted to see the changes first in the file explorer and realized, all "removed" tracks are still there.
Then I tried it in realtime: Removing a track in Neutron, see it get removed from the list, then looking in Filemanager on my smartphone - and it still exists.

Yes, I can reproduce that. Document it with some screenshots and write to the developer, if you want it fixed.

Hi.
I havent`t had the time yet to contact the developer.
I will do it now :)
Thanks for your help
Ralf
