I run LMS on a dedicated desktop computer (information given below) and
yesterday I experienced a very strange and distressing problem. I was in
the process of doing "find new music" rescan and opened the LMS web
browser interface on the dedicated computer that runs LMS to check on
the progress of the rescan. Microsoft Edge was the browser that was
opened and I left the browser open with the LMS rescan progress page
showing. The rescan finished and everything seemed fine however the next
day I noticed that LMS was behaving strangely, e.g. running slowly,
rebuffering, etc., so I opened task manager to see what might be causing
the problem. I then discovered that a Microsoft Edge sub-process was
using almost all of the available RAM on the computer. I tried to close
both Edge and the sub-process but to no avail. After doing a hard reboot
and getting LMS running once again I then discovered that many of the
LMS preferences were either missing, incorrect or corrupt.

A few questions:

1) Is anyone aware of the memory leak issue with Microsoft Edge? And if
so was the leak caused by Edge, LMS or a combination of the two?

2) Is there a backup copy of the LMS preference that I can use? And if
not, is there a way to make a backup of the LMS preferences for future

Thanks in advance for your help.
