Empty folder keeps reappearing on desktop after MC launch
« on: February 27, 2020, 02:47:22 pm »


I was running MC24 on Win7 and I once had a folder on my desktop containing some videos. I deleted this folder long time ago. I migrated to Win10 ( clean install from scratch) and when I start MC ( with the old library), the folder ( which is empty) keeps reappearng on my desktop.

I ran all disk repair tools thinking it was the OS but now I realize that the folder keeps reappearing wnen I start JRiver. I browsed in my library and searched with the folder name but no results.
There are no special characters in the folder name...

Thanks !

Check your settings, especially the File Location settings under MC's Options > File Location. If it's set to use a folder (e.g. on the Desktop that doesn't exist) MC will recreate that folder every time you start it.

Probably a good idea to double check your Library & Folders settings as well in the Configure auto-import option.
I don't work for JRiver... I help keep the forums safe from Viagra and other sources of sketchy pharmaceuticals.
