Prevent automatic collection update
I have my collection in an external disk, which is sometimes plugged and sometimes not. I have disabled "Update the collection when Strawberry starts" and "Monitor the collection for changes", whenever I change the files I'll do a manual rescan/update.
However, when I restart Strawberry, it will run a collection update (I see "Updating collection" in the status bar), which takes a while. Is there something I'm missing? Is there a way to avoid this?
Strawberry 1.0.9 on Ubuntu 22.04.
I also have my collection on a separate hard drive, and I just tested the update behavior with those two settings unchecked. You are correct; the settings seem to be ignored. I have been thinking about turning off the updating at every start, because, as you point out, it can take awhile. I have a large collection and an old computer. Perhaps Jonas can weigh in on this?
Strawberry 1.0.10; Linux Mint 19.3
And more annoyingly (to me), when one of these collection updates is going on, all my songs appear as never having been played, even though I can see that the in the .db file they appear with the correct data. This means that if I play one of the songs in the collection (e.g. by loading a file from command line), its "last played" and "times played" data will most likely not be updated. So far, once the update is completed, everything seems to work fine, but I am fearing the day when such an update will wipe all the stats for no good reason...
