Is there a way to force Alliance to rehash my shared list. Is there some files I can delete? I have a few files in my shared list that are no longer in folder that I'm sharing and I would like to have my list updated to reflect that. I can't find where this hash file maybe hiding.
I don't know if this is the good method but if you stop alliance (stop forever), then you delete somes files in you data directory in Alliance : share.dat, share.idx et share.idx.bak.
When you restart Alliance, It rescan and hash all your files.
The files, that no longer exist, vanish from you share list when:
- someone tries to donload the file
- someone searches for that file.
There is a possibility to search in your own share:
- Open the debug console: View -> Debug -> Debug console
- search for the file, that no longer exits: sl example.txt
sl stands for "search local"
example stands for the file, that is no longer in you share.
You can also search with wildcards: *.txt e.g.
Those suggestions for searching to remove deleted files from your shares don't work for me. I would have thought that the periodic rescans would remove deleted files. Can they not be made to do so? Thanks in advance.
I'm going to add a clean-up of non-existant files when you press the "rescan share" button - the bottum on the bottom right corner of the Alliance window.
I'm also going to add support for win32 file events. This means that when you remove or add a file in one of your shared folder your share will instantly be updated. This will only work on Windows.
Thanks a lot! That sounds like a perfect solution!
