Windows 7: "Ghost" Meta Data

09 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
"Ghost" Meta Data


Thanks to all your insight, between DVD Shrink and DVDFab, I am getting my DVD collection "backed up" to the root of my drive devoted for DVDs. However, I found a few issues with the double disk DVDs and a couple of single disk DVDs...

The issue is YAMMM is NOT pulling in the artwork and synopsis info properly, plus DVDFab is making a mess when working with double disk DVDs, namely the Merge feature is NOT adding in the first disk fter adding the second disk, as per tutorials and/or instructions provided here. In an attempt to resolve all this, I deleted each of the offending DVDs' folders, yet when going back into the Movie Library, the data movie has stayed resident, just no artwork or synopsis...

Any ideas what has gone wrong? TIA...

Go in to program data, you'll have to show hidden files and folders to access this,Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide[2]=File Folder Settings, then go to yammm, then cache and delete them from there.
