Every time I restart my computer my entire library is forgotten. I have to update collection each time. This bug doesn't happen if I have my collection loaded, quit Tomahawk and then reopen it. It only happens on boot. I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 and I have Tomahawk 0.8.4 if that helps.

Thanks for all your hard work guys; I absolutely love your music player! It is the best one I've ever used.

Any chances your music resides on a network-share? It sounds like Tomahawk is starting up, seeing that all your music files aren't on disk anymore and removes them from collection.

  1. Check your Collection settings, is "Watch for changes" enabled? Try disabling and only running manual collection updates.
  2. Does the rest of your data - e.g. recent plays, loved tracks etc - stay intact?

I have my music stored on a HDD while my operating system is stored on an SSD, but I am not network sharing at all.

Watch for changes is enabled and updates every 60 seconds (which was the default I think?). All of my other data remains intact; I am able to see all of my recently played and my loved tracks. I'll disable the watch for changes for next boot and see if it makes a difference.

Any news on this one?


Just tried unchecking the "watch for changes" and it fixed the issue. Thanks for your help Muesli!
