Aha, that explains it. Interesting.
Thanks for that.

With kind regards,

For that test I've used a rebuilt archive, not the one you had in your archive. The problem is based on an archive file index / order problem.

When a rename operation fails (and in that case, 2 renames fail since the right name already exists in the archive), it moves the not renamed ones to backup (so they can be picked up later on again). So it made a backup of file 5 and 6 for example. So far so good. Unfortunately, it directly removed the files, so it copied 5 to backup, removed 5, copied 6, removed 6 without having the indexes refreshed in between. So when it removed 5, copying 6 was simply the wrong file.
In my case the archive order was simply the other way around. It copied 6, removed 6, copied 5, removed 5, so it always picked the correct ones. To understand this: The backup copy is index based, the removal is filename based at that point...
So it only happens when more than 1 file failed during rename (where the right name files also exists in the archive)

The fix is pretty simple, do the removal of all of the backup'ed files after the copy....

Well, simplicity rules, however I'm not so sure if that goes for MAME and it's exceptions ;)
I'm interested to know why you couldn't reproduce it on the one machine.
If it was a timing issue, I can understand, but to me this looked very much like a repeatable sequence.

With kind regards,

Very odd, I was able to get the rebuilder so I didn't think to check. Thank you

Maybe refresh your browser cache....(e.g. by loading the page via CRTL-F5) the links work fine here.

Hey everyone, just a noobie here. Looking to grab CLRMamePro to scan my VPinMame ROMs. Problem however is I'm getting 404'ed whenever trying to download any of the files from the emulab website. The rebuilder link works fine though. Any help would be appreciated

nice finding......it actually backup'ed the wrong file (when there were more than 1 in the queue....in a failed rename...blablabla...) Thank god the new scanner won't have such special things....
