Occasionally I get faulty entries in my database due to bad tags. After adjusting the tags the tracks are listed correct, but sometimes the old faulty listing is kept!
The only way to clean those out is to do a complete rescan, which takes MANY hours on my Qnap.
I would like to go in manually to fix these bad entries, how do I do it?

The files must be scanned by SBS to recognize your changes. Also, SBS itself, can never alter (edit, change, add, delete, move, etc..) any files in your music collection. This is by design.
Check your tag editor program for a feature that alters the files time stamp when any files are altered. Then have your SBS server simply scan for new and changed files. This should take much less time to scan than a full wipe & replace scan.

My taggers (mp3tag, foobar, itsfv) do adjust the time stamp. When SBS does the nightly update scan it find these updated fiels and register them correctly. However the original, faulty, register of the file remains in SBS database.
The only way the get rid of these faulty registers is a complete rescan, which take a very long time.
This is not always the case, it typically happens when a Album has been faulty splitted in to two or more albums due to some inconsitency in the tags. Then the "extra" album records does not disappear, even though the tracks are also listed correctly under the correct album (the complete), after adjusted tags and rescan. The "extra" album records has the same name as the original album. The only way to tell that these are faulty is because they only have one or two tracks listed.

Might be the original tags are being referenced by a Playlist or perhaps duplicate of that file somewhere?
Also try clearing the SBS Cache. SBS > Control Panel > Advanced > Clean Cache
Best I can offer.

Sorry, no duplicates. Sometimes SBS just don't catch updated in the library.
No playlist either...
So what are you refering to Control Panel/Advanced /Clean cache?
-There is no such menu structure in SBS what I know of, I run 7.5.2 on Qnap ts-209 pro II.

I would recommend MediaMonkey. It will do all the work for your and fix many of your Problems.
