Topic: Virtual Folders Not Being Updated Automatically
Problem: on vdj startup...i always right click my root music library and select add to library to make sure i have no errors of missing files,it looks like the virtual folders contents are not automatically updated..as they show the original tags and name before i corrected them..and it appears as missing.
Observations: using the relocate file option solves my problem..well sort of..i have partitioned my hard drive with dual boot(ps i am aware of placing the db file and 'folders' folder in the root of the other drive),when i do the same procedure on the other side of dual boot system(right click>add to db),i still get the error of the original wrong named song and it is showed as missing,and the relocate file option may fix but upon restart of vdj..it reappears.
The only real solution i have found is to remove the file from the virtual folder that shows the missing file error,and then re add it with the renamed new file.
PS i know the virtual folder doesnt work like a filter folder...but is this a bug or this is just how the virtual folder works?

This was added in 2017:
When renaming or moving files, virtual folders in root, and playlists in playlist folder are automatically updated as well
I notice it says "in root" above. Are your folders inside another folder?

i can confirm that only folders not in the root are not updated and hence show file errors.
Root Virtual folders work fine and are updated.....
But this really needs a fix

That said, even if the path is wrong, as long as the filename and filesize didn't change and the file just moved, VirtualDJ should find it back automatically on opening the virtual folder.
Did you only move the file, or also rename it?

Moving only ,VDJ status message says "moving", gives the notification and after that it says "renaming..." for a very long time
only after that virtual subfolders are ok even in strange location
It seems this was either fixed or the background task "renaming..." was taking too long time to refresh everything or was failing - timed out ?
I didn't try to do the same with a file with no tags and "setTagsAuto" enabled, this may change size though
