    Yesterday I took 40 new photographs and transferred them to my hard disk.
    Of course they had no thumbs shown in media portal. so i did a scan.

    so far so good.
    but media portal scanned everry picture again, also those already in the database.

    I have 350 pictures, it took 2 minutes, so no big problem.
    but if someone has 1.000 or 2.000 pictures this will be a bit annoying.

    Maybe a option is possible:

    # scan all
    # scan only new pictures

    i am not an expert on databases and programming, but i imagine it could be done.

    might be a solution.

    as for now, i save all picures in one folder "my pictures".
    But with a growing number of pics its probably recommandable to create subfolders like "summer holiday 2004" or so.

    O.K. Last night I created a lot of subfolders, and I must admit thats what I should have done from the beginning 8)

    So everything is working fine and scans are only made of pictures in the folder you have opened not the subfolders.

    So, no need to implement a new feature for this.

    That’s what Lehmden said. Watched flags get migrated when updating to 2.2. Also a new plugin is almost finished to backup watched flags and restore later.
