Scan favorite folders
« on: March 04, 2011, 09:09:02 am »

 Hi all,

 I know it is possible in PVD to save a path to scan everytime PVD is started, but this is not a solution in my case because my movie folders are in different hard drives of a network computer. Also scanning them takes time and ressources so I really don't want to do this everytime PVD starts.

 I want however to scan them everytime I add movie files to that network computer. And the problem is that going through the "select directory or files" to select these hard drives far away in my network takes a long time. I have to select them one by one, and PVD scans them every time I tick the box next to them. The whole process of selecting them before the actual scan is about 6 minutes if I am fast.

 Hence my idea: Could there be a way in pvd to have these hard drives selected by default in a menu so that I only have to press a button to scan them whenever I need to do so?

 Thanks for listening.

It already works that way for local drives. Are you saying the configuration will not save network drives?

 I want to scan only when I choose to scan, not everytime pvd opens.
 Actually I feel stupid, I did not realize that I could save the folders, but not tick the box that says "scan everytime pvd starts".
 
 Still, the only way to scan when I want, is to tick the box, close pvd, open pvd (do the scan and everyting) then untick the box before closing pvd again.

 A "scan favorites folders now" button would solve this workaround.

 EDIT: By playing with it I just realize that it DOES it!
         I must have waisted so much time going through the ticking process...

Now there's something for the wish list. PVD should tell us when we're doing something the hard way! ;D
