View Full Version : [all variants] Changing Amarok collection update frequency

November 4th, 2008, 03:34 AM

I have a ~60GB music collection sitting on a separate fat32 partition so that I can access it from Amarok in Ubuntu and from iTunes in Windows. I have Amarok set to watch my music folder for changes. I'm noticing that Amarok happens to scan this folder and update its collection on an annoyingly frequent level - every few minuts. I'd be much happier if I could get it to scan and update every hour or so. Right now my hard disk is going crazy about half the time, I don't really need Amarok to scan tens of thousands of files every couple of minutes!

Any suggestions? I don't see any settings in Amarok config or on a quick google / ubuntu forums search.
