So as suggested in multiple threads we need to turn of "Empty trash automatically after every scan" to prevent Plex nuking the library when there is an issue with the rclone/mounts.
Now it causing another issue (minor) where Sonarr/Radarr downloads a file, Plex picks it up (no problem so far) then later on it finds a better file to download. What happens now, is that Sonarr/Radarr deletes the old file and copy the new file into the destination. So far Sonarr/Radarr is doing the job properly!

Plex detects the new file, and detects that old one is deleted so it moves the old one into Trash. Then marks the movie/episode as duplicate and unavailable. The item is playable as long as the viewer picks the latest version of the media file.

To overcome this I have to the library and manually "Empty Trash".

Any thoughts?

Yep got the same issue. Would be nice to have a post processing script that could tell plex to forget that file.
