Hi all -- editing on several Windows Vista PCs with MC5 and an editshare. We got rid of one PC several months ago. All of the MXF folders it created are locked to the other PCs, and at some point the database files were deleted so MC can't create new databases to recognize any of the media. So I essentially have several TBs of mysterious hidden media (that I'd like to delete).
I've tried changing the permissions with no luck, even with the PCs Admin accounts. I've also tried the Take Ownership add-on. Not sure if there are any other options...
So based on some suggestions in the Avid Community forum, I simply changed the editshare connect login to the login info of the old PC. It's given me to access the folders and allow Avid to rebuild most of the missing databases.
It still seems to have issues with one or two folders -- it goes through the whole scanning process on them and then gives me an error: Disk Invalid Filename Syntax.
