Media Companion 3 beta's - Now with Music Video support
So I just reorganized my movie folders on my NAS.
The bulk of my movies were already done from the past.
So after doing a search I now have 672 movies in MC when I only have 629 in the folder...
It is scraping my extras...
Many of my movies have and 'extras' sub-folder with my extras in it.
How do I stop MC from scanning these? It created an nfo file in each of these folders and even created extrafanart folders.
They are appearing in my movie list under the title 'Extras (2001)...... about 40 of this title!

Also, my existing nfo files are titled <movie>.nfo
Going through some and checking for missing titles in 'sets'... after adding a movie to a set it creates a second nfo in the directory titled movie.nfo and then adds a duplicate title to the movie list....

Did you set up MC to Exclude scanning of the "extras" folder? See Wiki - Common setting tab

Also, users can create a .nomedia file in any folder they wish skipped of scraping. The above is easier specially if you's got a lot of the same folder to exclude.

 Didn't catch that while exploring the settings. Problem solved.
Also found the option that was causing my double nfo's.

Thank you.
