Description Of Issue
I try to help a good friend of mine. He has a beautiful sound system, an immense music collection on a NAS. After indexing all went well, but after a couple of days Roon is looking for new content - there is no ripped content only an occasional Qobuz favorite, so the process is all over again.

Playing Music then is very slow including shutting down the system. How come?

Hi @boling,

Usually a “Force Rescan” under Roon Settings -> Storage -> 3-dots next to path sorts this out, we have found that NAS’s are often unreliable at reporting their file structure changes to Roon.

Does he have any additional info in the “activity spinner” that shows what Roon is doing?

Has he disabled Background / On-Demand Audio Analysis under Roon Settings -> Library? It’s possible that Roon is still performing analysis on the tracks, and that is a process that consumes quite a bit of resources.
