Library Issues - Songs Still Showing Even After Deleted From Drive

I deleted some music files from my hard drive (and emptied the recycle bin) BUT those tracks STILL show up in the library when I open Winamp. Then I have to delete the song again from the library. This seems odd to me. If the song is completely removed from the drive and folder being monitored, how is it still showing? Is there a setting where I can prevent this in the future? Thanks

Hi musicmafia,

This is not done by default. Some users prefer to manually update the media library database so that they are alerted to any files that go missing unintentionally. The options for how to automatically rescan monitored folders and remove all missing files from the media library database are on the General Preferences (Ctrl+P) - Media Library - Local Library - Watch Folders tab.

Winamp Pro v5.666.3516 fully-patched - Quinto Black CT v3.1 skin
Windows 10 Home 64-bit v1909 desktop - Logitech Z906 5.1 speaker system
