Excluding Files & Folders

Modified on Tue, 17 Jan 2023 at 09:45 AM

To exclude a media folder from the library scan, simply place a file inside the folder named .ignore

This will cause Emby to ignore all subfolders as well.

Note that this is intended to ignore folders with media in the library.  Some metadata sub-folders within a media item (like a movie or series) may not currently support this .ignore feature.
