Scan per-folder

Postby Tak-MK » Wed May 03, 2017 1:50 pm

This was commented in the beta2 thread if I recall correctly.
I have too many songs (1.5TB+) and every time I scan, I have to wait a lot. Maybe a scan only a single folder would help?

Thanks!

+1

Or perhaps an option to detect file-system changes and scan new folders then?

That can be done with inotify and a script, at least on linux. :D

I think for FreeNAS that wouldn't be possible. Talked about this a while back with some peeps from FreeNAS and they said it's just not possbile on FreeNAS. Don't remember the reason though..

I think that's because FreeNAS is BSD-based, and there's no inotify in BSD.
