Hashing does not finish?
Page 1 of 2     <<   <   12>>>

I added a 800gb test folder, and it is hashing now for one day. Hashing the same files over and over again. Not sure if that is normal or a bug. My library.dat file keeps growing and the goes back down.

is it having trouble with just one file or many?
is it always the same file(s) if you remove and then re-add the folder?

is there something on your computer that is accessing/changing the file(s)?

be sure to upgrade to v1.14 and see if this still happpens.

Having the same hashing problem.I have tried removing and then adding the files again but the hashing process continues.
The process has been running for 24 hours but the library is still not complete.

1.14 is still having the problem, the folder I'm sharing has 7 sub-folders... its starts at the last one and when it finishes it just starts hashing in it again, and again, and again...

try going into the settings->files and check on 'no library file re-hash...'

Checked 'no library file re-hash...' in settings but the hashing problem persists. The same folders,sub-folders are effected

I have exactly the same problem. Endless hashing. What is interesting the program hashes already processed files. BTW, hashing in fopnu is painfully slow - I allowed to hash 90 gigabytes of movies from my eMule folder and it took several hours (or rather have taken...). eMule hashes it in less than 30 minutes.

Checked the box to ignore modified made no difference as well. I'd also be surprised if my archive files would change.

Also seeing this behavior with v1.14 64-bit - W7 x64
by Guest on 2017/08/14 03:02:36 AM    
are you guys all sure that nothing is accessing/modifying any files within the folders that are constantly hashing?

i see zarkbit is on windows, how about the rest of you? what OS?
by Guest on 2017/08/14 04:29:59 AM    
I use Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and Fopnu 1.14 64-bit. I do not access or modify anything. I use i5-4600U and a SSD so that endless hashing less than 100 gigabytes (I am one of the yesterday's guests) looks like an obvious bug.

Using windows 10 64-bit

I have this same problem. I am sharing three folders, combined around 3TB. Once it finishes hashing the three folders it starts over again, hashing them constantly start to finish over and over.

I'm using Windows 2012 R2, 64-bit of course. Restarting the client and sharing/unsharing content doesn't change it. The files are not being modified, I am running WinMX at the same time as Fopnu and it does not have this problem at all with the exact same files and folders shared.

My client didn't exhibit this behavior. Although hashing IS slow, it never rehashed my files.

i have not run into this bug on linux with 1.14 ... is this only affecting windows users?
by Guest on 2017/08/15 10:07:36 AM    
The hashing problem is only happening in my folders which contain sub-folders.Could other users experiencing this,check their file system out.
Could this be causing the problem ?

where are these files stored?

what kind of harddrive are you guys using? nas?

what order does it scan these folders in? top to bottom? random?

are there any incomplete files? does it scan them?

does it scan ALL files and folders in the library? including download folder? is the download folder in the library?

what is the rough size of any folder in the library that does this?

what type of files are in the folders? avi? pdf? png? a combination of types?

if you guys made a folder and only put a few files in it, that were constantly hashing before, does it still happen?

Pri-> if you removed 2 of your 3 folders or made a folder with a few files in it, does it still happen?

where are these files stored? - The default downloads folder on my desktop

what kind of harddrive are you guys using? nas? - SSD in my laptop

what order does it scan these folders in? top to bottom? random? - Random

are there any incomplete files? does it scan them? - No incomplete files

does it scan ALL files and folders in the library? including download folder? is the download folder in the library? - All but not all at once. All are hashed and every restart of the program (not my laptop, I practically do not switch it off unless it myst be restarted every month after Windows updates) it rehashes approx. one third of the files or so.

what is the rough size of any folder in the library that does this? - 92 gigabytes

what type of files are in the folders? avi? pdf? png? a combination of types? - mkv, avi and some 7z (FLAC audio albums compressed with 7-Zip)

if you guys made a folder and only put a few files in it, that were constantly hashing before, does it still happen? - In my case it makes no sense, I store my files in only one default folder, and all the files are rehashed

I ticked "No library file re-hash after last modified time change", I did it just in case. I did not help. I have not downloaded anything yet, I just upload files but I does not help anyway. As I said I use Win 10 x64.

The problem was solved for me by ticking the box: "No library file re-hash after last-modified time change"

I share from two internal hard drives on the same computer that Fopnu runs from. It scans everything, even folders that contain lots of sub-folders are being scanned properly and it's now not re-scanning my folders since ticking the box I noted above.
