    Hmm I get less than 5 MB/sec. No idea where the bottleneck is.

    My Pi is wired as well although the laptop I use to transfer the files is wireless. Normal file transfers over Samba are the same speed as freefilesync.

    After checking it turns out I am using "File size" not "File content" and it actually takes exactly the same time as "File time and size" . More than two minutes to scan 12000 files just seems slow while you're waiting for it.

    from "dos" command prompt in Windows type:
    Code:
    m:
    cd \artistname
    
    powershell

    Assuming that responds with something that has "PS" at the start of the line then you are in Windows PowerShell

    Then
    Code:
    Get-ChildItem . * -recurse | ForEach-Object{$_.LastWriteTime = $_.CreationTime}
    This should set the Modified Time to the same as the Creation Time for all files from that location and downwards
    i.e.
    artistname/*
    artistname/album1/*
    artistname/album2/*

    at the end of the session type
    Code:
    exit
    to return to the "dos" prompt
    Thanks Paul,

    I am comfortable with working in PS & DOS, so sounds good. Will try FreeCommander first and then your go to suggestion as Plan B if I have any issues... Appreciate the input.

    Google BulkFileChanger
    Freeware Windows tool that will allow you to modify file attributes as you wish

    Example of where useful
    You rip files to FLAC with no embedded art but with folder.jpg
    You scan and find folder.jpg is corrupted and need to replace
    You do so and rescan
    LMS doesnĺt detect the change unless you do a full rescan
    Use BulkFileChanger to modify time of FLAC files by 1 second
    Rescan
    All well and album maintains position in New Music
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng
