    Windows LMS scans folders which are not selected

    I have LMS installed on Windows 10 purely for testing purposes. I had 4 media folders with only 1 selected for scanning. When I perform a scan the 2 local folders are scanned even though 1 of them is not selected. When I deleted 1 of the folders from media folders it is still being scanned.
    How do I stop LMS scanning the deleted folder?

        You win the prize [emoji1787]. Somehow a shortcut had appeared in my music folder. Of course I didn't find it until I completely uninstalled LMS and deleted Prefs etc [emoji2357]
