    Thanks for the heads-up.

    I could not for the life of me figure out what was going on with the "new and changed" scan rescanning the whole library.

    Bump. A reminder for anyone running LMS under Windows:

    Run a full "clear library & rescan everything" following a time change to or from Daylight Savings Time. Otherwise, the next new & changed scan may rescan the whole library, which is typically much slower than doing a full scan.

    Been there, done that.

    Any ideas why new and changed scans following the DST switch always find half the number of modified tracks compared to the previous scan? (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...l=1#post760952)

    Everybody else where DST operates can relax until next week - apart from the odd-balls who change on their own eccentric dates!

    Actually, the UK and western Europe (at least) changed to standard time last week. For a week we here in Toronto were only 4 hours earlier than London. Back to the normal 5 now.

    I didn't see this in time. My scheduled new and changed scan took 1.5 hours last night. Normally 10 minutes or less. Will it really continue to be slow until I clear and rescan as one post above indicates?

    Makes no sense to me, but I will go ahead and change my next scheduled scan to clear and rescan.

    If the new & change scan rescanned every file in the library, then it shouldn't rescan those files again, because the new timestamps would be recorded in the library database. One the other hand, if there's some bug is causing only 1/2 of the files to be scanned each time, then it would keep doing it until it finishes the whole library.

    I recall a couple of similar bugs where only half of the tracks expected to be scanned actually do get scanned. Don't know if they're related.

    IMO, it's good to run a full rescan periodically anyway.

    I changed the scheduler to run clear and rescan tomorrow and then I have a reminder so I don't forget to switch it back.
