Live's File Manager not automatically replacing candidates

  • Live Versions: 6 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL

Symptom

Live's File Manager does not automatically replace missing sample files if multiple candidates have been found.

Reason

Live's File Manager evaluates “checksums” (data that verifies the integrity of a file) for replacement candidates. If audio files have been modified outside of Live,
the checksums of the original files have changed and don't match the original anymore.

Solution

Use the option '-_RelaxFileManagerSearch' which will bypass the checksum comparison.
