Summary0002407: Cleanup unused sources does not scan other snapshots correctly
DescriptionI worked on a project with various snapshots, all named differently (after the songnames, so I did not take the date as snapshot name).

When I used the "cleanup unused sources" feature, all audiofiles which were not used by the single snapshot I had just loaded were moved to "dead sounds"!. The other snapshots reported that their audiofiles were missing.

+ There were quite a lot audiofiles of the same name with different sizes in "dead sounds" and "audiofiles", so just moving all files back was no solution.

This is still a very major problem in 2.8. The current session will completely ignore the snapshots and delete files which these snapshots might need!

rev 5269 of 2.0-ongoing hopefully contains a near-final fix for this issue.

Hi Paul,

I testes rev 5270 this morning and it seems to work! If you don't mind, I will test it this weekend thoroughly with a real session that formerly failed and then report it here.

Btw, after testing this bug so much yesterday, I dreamed that you were sitting with me at a table and explained the truths about DeusEx to me...

Works perfectly for me! The formerly problematic session is now small like I wanted it to be, without destroying any data that is still needed.

Bug can be closed and marked as fixed!

problem solved. caused by a remnant of the old session folder heirarchy before we moved to .../interchange/session-name/audiofiles, and also of not using a relative path for hard-linked embedded files.
