* I scanned an empty Movies directory
* restored the files
* scanned

All meta data was gone
Files were still in wrong folder ie File located in Myth-A appeared in Myth-E (as above)

* I restored the database to recover meta data

opinion wanted:
Have I pushed my db past it’s limits ?
It is very hard to file a bug

"Steps to reproduce” - take my files, scan them, see they go to wrong directory. :-)
