    Big argument in favor of doing a full rescan

    I recently did a full rescan after several months of not doing so.

    My cache was almost 6 GB before the rescan.

    After the rescan it had shrunk by 1.5 GB.

    Total library size:

    Total Tracks: 385,916
    Total Albums: 39,092
    Total Artists: 56,695

    FYI.

    I do full rescans on a regular base - since lms 7.9 its even faster than ever.

    But you must not forget that a clean scan always deletes more than just your db.
    All the cached sites are wiped also - that means the webgui from lms is a little bit slower, cause everything in ./templates had to be rewritten.

    If you reorganize a bunch from your library files/folders a clean scan is (my) way to go.

    Thanks for your reply.

    My cache is on a RAM drive because it's so large.

    I don't notice any problems with performance after a full rescan.
