Emby keep losing information like season number and some genres that i manually added into some series and the status of the series which i have put on ended.

I have locked those entries but over time they get unlocked and the changes that i don't want reappears.

I have disabled the function to updates the metadate after some time.

sure,the best example would be the mecha genre some series will get automatically when emby gets the metadata other times i add it manually to some tv shows that should have it .

and after a while they lose it

each series has an option at the bottom to lock it to prevent future changes

Can't see it completely but I would guess you have a structure and/or naming scheme issue.  Can you go over the complete folder structure.

actually that might be it since the folders don't have the season number

let me try something

but shouldn't be enough with files having the season number ?

But from what I see it looks like a nested folder issue.  What is the structure?

it's garo (2005)\garo yami wo  terasu mono (2013)

it's like this because of tvdb they combie several series into one

initially i had them separate but then i had to combine them to get metadata

But from what I see it looks like a nested folder issue.  What is the structure?
