Emby Server 188.8.131.52 Hotfix Release available soon...
If your library contains folder format media - this is only old disc style VIDEO_TS and BDMV folders - then be on the lookout for this new release and update as soon as possible.
If your library does not contain that kind of media or you do not allow delete privileges for your Emby users then none of this applies to you and you can continue on your way...
With only these old-style disc rip formats it is possible that using the Emby UI to delete one of them could potentially delete much more than just that one item.
Emby Server 184.108.40.206 will fix this problem.
What to do until you have the new version
In the meantime, if you have folder-based media as described above do not use the Emby UI to delete any of these items. You may wish to remove the delete privilege from all of your users until you can update. If you do not have this type of media then there is no problem. Also, this issue can only occur if you specifically request to delete one of these items and only one of these types of items. Emby will not go deleting things during normal operation or under any other circumstance. Also deleting any other file-format item (mkv, mp4 etc.) is still safe. This includes any and all Emby DVR recorded items.
We sincerely apologize for this issue and have moved as quickly as we can to rectify it once it was properly diagnosed.
Thanks for your support.
