Has been discusses a couple of times here already, nevermind though:
- A “Scan” only processes changed files (mtime/ ctime)
A “Full Scan” processes all files
For instance: if you change the tag of a file and do a “Scan” the changes will be picked up. However if you delete a file, you need a “Full Scan” for it to be cleansed from firefly.
