I'm finally annoyed enough with this to post a bugf report here. I'm surprised this one has not been caught before as it has been like this "forever". Anyhow, under f"Folder cleaning" i have the following options checked:
- Automatically clean folders after fetching
- Delete sample videos
- Delete unknown folders

I also have "Generate Kodi/XBMC compatible metadata (.nfo)" checked under "Metadata".

This always gives me messages like this when MCM downloads metadata:

4:25 PM :: MCM: Cleaning folder V:\TV Series\Bates Motel...
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file tvshow.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x01 - First You Dream, Then You Die.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x02 - Nice Town You Picked, Norma.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x05 - Ocean View.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x07 - The Man in Number 9.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x08 - A Boy and His Dog.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x09 - Underwater.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 1x10 - Midnight.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x01 - Gone But Not Forgotten.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x02 - Shadow of a Doubt.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x03 - Caleb.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x04 - Check-Out.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x05 - The Escape Artist.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x06 - Plunge.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x07 - Presumed Innocent.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x08 - Meltdown.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x09 - The Box.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 2x10 - The Immutable Truth.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x01 - A Death in the Family.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x02 - The Arcanum Club.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x03 - Persuasion.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x04 - Unbreak-Able.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x05 - The Deal.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x08 - The Pit.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 3x10 - Unconscious.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 4x02 - Goodnight, Mother.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 4x03 - 'Til Death Do You Part.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 4x04 - Lights of Winter.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... deleted text file 4x05 - Refraction.nfo
4:25 PM :: MCM: ... 29 files deleted totalling 81.7 KB
4:25 PM :: MCM: ...done!

Obviously these are the Kodi/XBMC .nfo files generated by MCM itself, so they should not be deleted. Neither are they deleted, but MCM still keeps writing these messages in the log and output window. I have also seen similar messages for other files, which were also bogus as they were not supposed to be deleted - and they were not but the messages were still there.

Even though the files are not actually being deleted these messages floods my lolg and output window so it's hard(er) to find what you're looking for there.

Not sure if anyone will be bothered to fix this as MCM seems not to get much support or attention anymore.

I can not reproduce this with the information provided. Please post your Support information. Sound like the settings on that machine are not saving properly.

Code:
Fetching
5:46 PM :: MCM:  [F#2] now working on Limitless [Sci-Fi]
5:46 PM :: thetvdb.com  Updated base metadata for this show
5:46 PM :: thetvdb.com  Fetching season 1 banner...
5:46 PM :: thetvdb.com     none available
5:46 PM :: thetvdb.com  Done with this show!
5:46 PM :: fanart.tv:  Looking for thumbnail artwork for Limitless, season 1...
5:46 PM :: fanart.tv:  ... none found
5:46 PM :: MCM:  Now resizing artwork for Limitless (2015)
5:46 PM :: MCM:  [F#2] Created Kodi/XBMC metadata files
5:46 PM :: MCM:  Cleaning folder D:\Working\Test\TV\Limitless [Sci-Fi]...
5:46 PM :: MCM:  ... skipped theme music
5:46 PM :: MCM:  ... 0 files deleted

Selecting Clean
5:47 PM :: MCM:  Cleaning folder D:\Working\Test\TV\Limitless [Sci-Fi]...
5:47 PM :: MCM:  ... skipped theme music
5:47 PM :: MCM:  ... 0 files deleted


Only way I could get MCM to delete nfo files was enabling the other clean options and disabling Kodi metadata.

This has "always" been a problem for me, and MCM would claim to delete other files during "folder clean" as well without actually doing it.

I'd like to see a file heirarchy screen grab and the contents of one of the .nfo files. You may also want to consider running the troubleshooter from the help menu for access/security to that folder. If it says it's deleting something, it should be --and also...

From your log, the "deleted text file" bit tells me that Media Center Master doesn't think there is valid XML in the .nfo file. So there's a chance MCM may not be able to read the files correctly.

If it thought it was a metadata .nfo file, it would delete it with the description "deleted stale metadata file" instead.

This could be a Emby / MCM metadata issue. I still only use xml even though Emby has dropped XML writing abilities (unless someone is willing to update there xml plugin). They still read xml files but there are fields that are still not compatible and Emby eventually just writes the changes to the Database instead of file.

I will do some more testing and get back to this. It has nothing to do with Emby as Emby is not allowed to write metadata in my movie archive, it doesn't even have write access there.

I'm really tired of this issue, its' completely "polluting"! my log window with these messages. Pete, what do you need to have a look at this?

And this do NOT have anything to do with Emby, Emby *never* writes to my library so MCM doesn't even know it's there.

I think this is related to invalid metadata.

Technically, they can be read fine by Media Center Master and other applications, like Kodi, that accept non-conforming XML, but during the cleaning process, text files are tested for XML conformity to determine if they're metadata or just text files.

What's the problem? Media Center Master is not escaping certain characters like it should. Specifically, it's usually the ampersand (&) character that should be written to XML like & (similar to HTML).

See: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1091945/what-characters-do-i-need-to-escape-in-xml-documents

I've actually already fixed this recently, so the next autoupdate will include this fix.

My metadata is exclusively managed by MCM.

If this has been fixed in an upcoming release, do I have to refresh all the metadata?

Asking because I've just done that and it's time consuming....

No, you will just re-export metadata to external formats when that release is available. This is a very quick process.
