Have to manually trigger scan of watch folders

Post by JasonT »

I have set my watch folders to "watch for changes" for scan mode, but I have to manually right click on the folders to trigger a scan. I wait a few hours and still nothing even though it sounds like it should happen every 5 minutes. Please advise.

Yes new media should be detected immediately.

Is your media located on a local disk or on a NAS / network drive as this behavior relies on Windows receiving events from the file system and some external NAS's may not support this.

Thanks
