Good morning,

first of all best compliments for your fantastic software.

I had a hard disk failure. In this disk i had part of my movies collection that i had previously backuped on another disk.

There is a way to recover the movies list that was recognized by emby?

So i could rebuild my movie library at the same state before disk failure.

At this moment Emby runs correctly on another disk and it never stopped working

I tried with local.db but i couldn't find the complete movies list

Thanks in advance

If you have a copy of the library.db file, and if you're handy with sqlite, then you could extract the data from that.

Thank you for your answer. 

Yes i have my library.db and i have already tried to retrive the movies list with db browser without success.

I 'll take a deeper look.

Do you have any suggestion on the tables to examine?

To start you off look at the "typebaseditems" table on the Browse Date tab and filter on "movies.movie" for the type field

 

to extract the data to a list you will need to use SQL

First of al thank you for the answer.
 
Typebaseditems is the table that i have already checked but there i didn't found the full movie list but only a part of.
 
I ordered the table by path but the result was only partial
Thanks a lot the same
