When I complete add metadata in a test case using a tagger, I then go into Roon and go to Settings => Storage => three dots => Force rescan. Roon then scans my entire watched folder which takes a few minutes. Afterwards, I can see if my edits are properly read by Roon or if I have to make further changes (which is typically the case…)
Is there a way to have Roon scan the targeted folder(s) without scanning all of my watched folders?
The target folder (at the moment) is part of my watched folders. My watched folders are stored on my NAS under “Music” and the subdirectories are artist (Bob Dylan), collection (The Bootleg Series), and album (The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3 - Rare & Unreleased (1961-1991)). In most cases, I am editing the metadata in an individual album. Note too, that I don’t often use the collection level, but Bob Dylan (and a few others) warrant it to better organize my albums.
You can re-scan an album by going to the album editor panel that you open with the 3-dot menu next to the big play button on the album page. You have to scroll down just a little bit to expose the “Rescan album” option
For collections, you can select the multiple albums of the collection by right clicking each of them, and then going to the three dot menu that appears at the top of the screen and selecting edit. it will bring you to the same album editor screen but it will rescan multiple albums
The other way would be to move the album or target folder out of the watched folder, edit the metadata and then put the album back into the watched folder, which will cause to re-scan it and re-analyze it
