    Question dvr folder cannot generate manifest.txt file

    Hello:
    I found that every time I reset the stream, and then play it through http://.../playlist.m3u8?DVR, wowza will rename the dvr folder to ***.stream.0.bad and renew a new folder to record, but it cannot generate the manifest.txt. Then next time I play it, it will rename the dvd folder again. But when I play it through http://.../playlist.m3u8, it can play normally.
    I 've tried to stop and republish the stream, reset the stream. How could this happen, and how can I solve it.
    thank you.

    here is the log:

    It looks like the manifest.txt file is not found (deleted or possibly moved). There is a built-in safeguard to rename bad nDVR stores. Without the manifest file, the DVR Store will not be able to be played back. As recording continues, a new folder will be created.
