I appreciate the feedback and the details you've provided. I will indeed be sending this information for analysis.
And thanks for the kind words on the TV's.
I bought a Samsung 40B750 a few months ago and have been enjoying it. Today I've upgraded to PC Share Manager 2.2 and one of the four folders I'm sharing does not get included to the shared files somehow.
I've tried to isolate the problem and included them one by one, included folder A applied changes and waited for the program to re-create the DB. Then I removed folder A and did the same with folder B, etc. For a weird reason when adding folder D (the problematic one) the DB seems to be created instantly. The program causes no errors and I can't find any log to see where the problem lies.
Even more interesting, when I place the folder D within folder A and add Folder A, contents of folder D are included. Their structure are quite alike (folder depth from root, etc.)
I fixed the problem while writing this: I removed all the shared folders, applied changes, then I turned off the server, deleted everything in "c:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\SAMSUNG PC Share Manager\MediaRoot\" and its subfolders and restarted the server. As the last step I added the folder D again and now its working as intended. Perhaps this will help someone...
On a more general note, Samsung may be doing a superb job with its TV's, but this specific program is worse than a beginner's attempt at an newly learned programming language. Putting everything performance related aside, a program sharing selective folders, should be able to browse the said folders itself. The bar icons are cute, but the UI is clumsy and non-resizable... There is no debugging information available while there are so many bugs in the program.
