Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Bug: parsing files via http webdav

Hi, my music files are on a NAS with WebDAV enabled, and accessible via my Wan IP (password protected). Getting scanning to work without errors caused me a lot of trouble, with console reporting many network error and object not found messages. This was all due to folder and file names with symbols that were not parsed properly, including % # + &  . and !
So symbols that also have a meaning if not part of a file or folder name.
I changed the naming, which was a tedious job, hopefully it can be fixed by a different parsing method of the info from the http server.

Also, it seems that there is a limit to the number of subfolders that can be indexed? I had to make 3 subfolders with less than 200 subsubfolders each in order to scan the lot without a network error.

Hope this is helpful,
