I have about 750 gigs of flac files. How long should it take for Slimserver to scan all of these?

I've got 240 Gbytes (70% Ogg Vorbis, 30% FLAC) in 12743 tracks.
It takes me about 35 minutes to do a full rescan.

This depends on the hardware slimserver is run on, OS, the size of the library (number of tracks/albums and playlists!, not disk space) and the location of the files (local disk, external NAS wired/wireless).
Any scan times without hardware and setup information are just useless.
11000 tracks, 15 playlists on my AMD Sempron 2800, 1GB RAM, local IDE disk take 15 minutes to scan.

-s.

How do you know when the scan is complete?

Your house stops shaking when the disk activity ceases.
