Hi All,

I am building a site based on Silverstripe 2.3.4. The draft content for site is received via an XML feed from a third party. I am able to create content and add assets via mysql using a cron job. I have 2000+ images loaded via the cron directly into the File table. But for some unknown reason, the asset data gets mysteriously truncated/deleted. I suspect that there is a reference checking being done by SS and it's truncating the remaining files. If that's the case, how do I create the reference so SS leaves the assets intact?

Thanks in advance.

You have to make sure that the filename matches exactly and the file object is contained in the appropriate folder objects. if not, the filesystem will be resynced, losing IDs etc.
