I have my music in two folders, one is a Synology NAS (using SMB with Mac Files services turned off) running on a PC with Windows 10) and the second is a separate internal hard drive containing only music files. Both show up properly on the watched folders list, but after every shutdown they show zero in available albums. If I delete them and start over they work fine (however given that I have over 9,000 tracks, it takes more than a full day for Roon to analyze the file every time I reboot).
Since I often need to restart the computer once or twice a week, this can’t continue as its hogs far too many resources constantly rebuilding the entire set of folders.
I have read through the other suggested topics but I have either already made the changes recommended there or they are not relevant. I also do not understand what the issue with the files being watched on the fixed drive are.
