This problem started occuring in the past week or two when there was a ROON software update.

Before, if I added a new album or albums, I could manually set ROON to ReScan and add the albums. Since the latest ROON software update, ROON is always scanning, and I am unable to do a manual rescan when I add an albums. And at odd times ROON will add parts of existing albums as new albums. The only way I can add an album or albums is to reboot my Sonic Transporter i7 (ROON Core).

My Sonic Transporter i7 has no internal drive for albums - all albums are on Western Digital MyCloudPR4100 32TB.

I have over 7300 albums, many of them hi rez up to 384-24 also DSD with some up to DSD256.

Never had issues like this before the last ROON software upgrade.

Thanks. Funny I updated my Sonic Transporter i7 not even a week ago but nothing changed. But just now it loaded a software update and that kernel and all is fine.
