Sometimes I use the PC without listening any track, so I don’t connect the disk. When tried to use Firefly again, the Database has been deleted. No track indexed. And I got to scan again. How can I avoid this issue? 6th January 2010 at 9:10 pm #18885 stretchParticipant set rescan interval to zero and switch off initial scan. Firefly is wiping the db because when the USB disk is not connected, firefly can’t see the music when it starts a scan & updates the db accordingly. 6th January 2010 at 9:36 pm #18882 Anonymous i’m assuming that “initial scan” you mean “always scan” set to “NO”. Rescan interval set to 0. Will try 7th January 2010 at 8:54 am #18883 stretchParticipant No, i meant “skip first scan”, default is “no” Firefly always initiates a scan on start up. Setting this option will stop that behaviour. 7th January 2010 at 12:24 pm #18884 Anonymous sorry but I don’t have this option in the web manager page.
