25,328. (This is in settings. I would’ve expected to find it at the top of “Tracks” the way the album total is at the top of “Albums”.)
I was downloading a ton of stuff from my local Dropbox folder on my desktop to my Roon library which is on an external hard drive. It started off telling me something like 19 minutes, then, when I checked back it was saying something like 55 minutes! Roon was chugging away with the little loading icon spinning.
On a whim, I decided to quit Roon & suddenly the copy time dropped to something like 6 minutes & in fact didn’t take nearly that long to complete.
So, no major problem. Just wondering why Roon would cause the copy time to become so extended? It’s almost as though it’s interacting with the Mac OS & asking the system to hold up while it processes what it’s been given, rather than just scanning & reacting to what it finds.
