Hi there,
Is there a way to filter a smartlist so it shows all issues present in the database but missing the file?
I made a boo boo and deleted some files by mistake :huh:

Example:
CRW 0.9.178 x64 on Win10
CRA 1.80 on Nexus 10

There are a couple of problems here. First, Comicrack only identifies a comic with this state if it knows the file is not present, so you would need to at least open all of your library. Secondly there is no smartlist variable that matches this.

Easiest thing to do:
1. Clear Thumbnail cache in Preferences Advanced.
2. Go to library view, remove any groupings.
3. Switch to thumbnail view and scroll through your collection to make sure every issue has a front cover shown or an X.
4. Order the collection by State.
5. Select every book that has no file and drag them into Temporary List, to make a list you can then use to work out which books you have lost.

Does the "File not found" script help?

I started doing that, but scrolling through 60k+ issues dissuaded me instantlyjkthemac wrote:
