I've never used that plugin before, everything was created manually.
If I add one of the items to a collection with the same name as it was before (e.g. Pixar Collection), it adds it and the collection comes back. However, now there are duplicates of this collection in the collection drop down (the drop down that comes up when you choose to add something to a collection). But when I look in the collections folder on my hard drive, it's still only listed once. In the XML file now, there's only the one entry that I just added and everything that was there before is now gone.
With a test without the Auto Boxset plugin I see this behavior. If you go to Dashboard-Library-select the Collections library and select scan library, then Search for missing metadata the collections should return. As least they did in my test.
@Luke Doesn't look like Collections Library get Refreshed during a library scan? I can only assume this only happens with the Auto Boxset plugin. (Think we have discussed this before)
Removed Auto Boxset plugin
Renamed movie library via Libraries
Auto scan completed - no collections were identified ever though they exist in \data\collections
Performed additional Scan All Libraries no change
Performed Library scan on Collections library (Search for new and updated files) no change
Performed Library scan on Collections library (Search for missing metadata) collections returned
Also repeated steps and Performed Library scan on Collections library (Replace all metadata) collection returned
Note my test was on Collections that were generated by the plugin, have not verified Custom/Manual collections returning all content properly.
*A quick test adding items to a Misc Collection were returned with the process above.
