There is a bug raised on 7.6.1 music scanner performance UNC compared to directly mounted. But I am not sure that Logitech can do much about the issue.

however, the devs don't "live" in windows, and so it always seems to me that those server versions only get properly looked after when windows users report back to the devs the problems they find in windows.
jmho, don't bite my head off.

Windows is a nightmare, this is what QA teams are supposed to be for, back when we had one...
BTW, RC1 is just that, the 1st one... I never thought for a second that it was going to be good enough.

that being the case, it only seems sensible to me for your own testing to start there, to target your main demo. also, it seems like if you get it working on windows first, its less likely to not work elsewhere.
this isn't meant as a personal criticism btw, but rather a constructive critique to help development going forward. i could be all wet, so i'm just floating it out there respectfully.
i really like the current direction you're taking server, and i'm sure RC1 will improve, and i'm getting more and more tempted to buy a revue as a consequence.

Please don't use the word 'release candidate' inflationary - otherwise you loose all effect.
For some reason I expected from a RC that some basic QA has been done before, not that it's the release where QA only starts to take action.

TheMACServer is running Windows then? There have been reports that
scanning a Windows drive using its UNC path was considerably slower than
scanning the drive directly, even if the share was local.

By the way, even with the photos directly accessed I still got my scan unexpectedly quit after 10hours only 25000 in to my 35000 photos. I am ready to give up now and move back to 7.6.1. Ithought I would give it a final go just with music (stopping the photo scan in file types) but it seems to have hung on the pre-caching artwork stage on the first file.

We did the minimum this time: only the package is renamed. All the files
