Files Being Deleted

Post by blurpasta »

Anyone still experiencing files being deleted on your internal HDD upon updating of multimedia files? Currently using the A70 IT 250gb, previously 100gb of videos were being deleted after updating of the multimedia start scanning. The solution for me is to input .nomedia on the videos to prevent it from deleting it.

However, this can't be the solution as my resume and bookmark functions are not working as a result of the .nomedia file. I'm hoping the new firmware can solve this problem but just like to check anyone still having this probem as me?

They said they addressed the problem in .8, so on my a70 8gb +32gbsd I removed most .nomedia files and saw no loss. I have seen other reports of no loss.

If you can, would you please describe in more detail the circumstances of losing your files.

Thanks,

I updated some of the info on my music files and then performed a "reset of multimedia files" (the option that states it will not delete any data). After it was completed my video files were gone and most of my pictures were gone too.

I plan to take backups with me on a 32G SD card with my Lumix ZS3 camera acting as a self-powered card reader.
