Triggering a rescan of folders

Quick one, when making metadata changes to my underlying files I deliberately preserve file mod time because I have Roon set to use that as import date.

As I make metadata changes using a database a single metadata change can affect many files scattered across any number of albums, and often only a few files from an album, each album being housed in its own folder.

To ensure Roon detects the changes I can run a script that adds one second to the last mod date of each of the affected files or I could update the timestamps of all files in the folders containing files that have had metadata changes written.

Will either approach work equally in Roon or does one fit better than the other having regard to Roon’s internal workings?

Hi @evand,

Either of these should work for you, whichever is easiest for you to implement.
