 I have videos on a server that is mounted over Samba/CIFS onto
 the frontend+backend machine. I added a few extra videos to a
 folder on the main machine, so I scanned for changes using the
 Video Manager. However, the CIFS share was not mounted and the
 scan deleted the video metadata for over 600 videos without any
 warning. The previous version (0.22) of MythTV always prompted
 me to ask if I wanted to delete videos that could no longer be
 found (e.g., if the CIFS share was not mounted). It took me
 several days to set up all that metadata and it was all gone
 in seconds.

 Please restore the confirmation before the deletion of metadata.
