    Hello friend...

    Your getting this problem this is may because of the name of the folder is not the original one...

    i.e., If you have changed the name of the original folder, it may not get scanned or crashed...

    So this problem may be resolved by deep scanning the folder using library ..

    Enable deep scanning in libraries...

    Hope this may help you.....
