I just purchased my WD SMP, and first attempted to set the unit up with my entire audio/video collection on my NAS at once. I had it set to rescan during standby, and added 3 shares from my NAS: MOVIES, TV, and MUSIC. I noticed that the compile took forever so I let it run overnight. The next day, I realized that the MOVIE and TV shares had completed relatively shortly (w/in a couple hours), but the MUSIC was listed as last scanned approx. 16 hours after I left it. I then realized that I should be doing manual scans due to library size, and changed the setting to rescan monthly. I also removed the MUSIC share from the library and performance improved dramatically.
My basic question is: Now that I have my MOVIE and TV shares set up in the library, and all content info retrieved, will I be able to now add the MUSIC share to the library? It is approximately 145 gigs. I just don’t want to have to go through 8 hour-plus recompiles.
