Now they reside in your /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/metadata folder but are virtual items as they are built from item metadata.

But that has nothing to do with /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/root/default per those instruction.

Understood, however there is so such file directory: var/root/default

 

root@DiskStation:/var/packages/EmbyServer/target# ls -a

.  ..  bin  EmbyServer.sc  etc  lib  licenses  share  system  ui

Don't know your platform, was just going off the info you provided as is should be right next to /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/data/.  But is in whatever the Data Path shows in your sever log.

Don't know your platform,

Synology, Intel 64 Bit, DSM 6.

 

Looked into Logs, and see this problem:

LibraryMonitor: Skipping realtime monitor for /volume1/Emby/data/collections because the path does not exist

I can't see /volume1/Emby in File Station, and I can't figure out how to navigate to it in Terminal

@cayars @FrostBytecan you help with Data Path location?

But my steps or removing the Collection library and allowing to rebuild should resolve this error.

Either of these two paths should lead you to collections in DSM 6

/var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/data/collections
/volume1/Emby/data/collections

The new path should be this as old path is obsolete in 4.6.

/var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/metadata/collections
/volume1/Emby/metadata/collections

So the library path should be. 

/var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/root/default/collections
/volume1/Emby/root/default/collections

Deleting this will allow for the removal of collections library via Dashboard-Library to remove "3 x Collections".

Which doesn't exist:

root@DiskStation:/var/packages/EmbyServer/target# ls -a

.  ..  bin  EmbyServer.sc  etc  lib  licenses  share  system  ui

Which I can't see in File Station, and I can't figure out how to get to it in Terminal

I can visually see /volume1/Emby/ via choosing a library location, so i know it is there. If anyone could advise the command required to get to Volume1 it would be great, my google search is giving me nothing.

If a proper Collection library is shown on Dashboard-Library it is unremovable as there is no Remove/delete option.

You could shut down Emby and got to "C:\Users\username\Desktop\Stable\programdata\root\default" path will be platform prevalent and delete the Collections folder.

Start Emby

This will cause Emby to show a Mix Content Collection folder that then can be remove and Emby will auto generate the correct one.

Ok, finally got this sorted

 

Locations is /volume1/Emby/root/default/Collections

"Collections" is an upper case "C"

Because I couldn't for the life of me figure out how delete that directory rm: cannot remove ‘[/volume1/Emby/root/default/Collections]’: No such file or directory I simply moved it to a location I can see in File Station to delete there.

mv /volume1/Emby/root/default/Collections /volume1/Media/Emby/

 

Started Emby, deleted Mix Content Collection folder (there were 3 of them) and Collections has been recreated correctly as a singular instance.

 

Thanks for the assistance, got there in the end.
