How to prevent "Library scanner" to scan complete system?

Post by hwz » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:05 am

Starting up UMS the "Library Scanner" starts to scan all files of the system, which are terrabytes in size.
I specified the folder in question in the "UMS.conf" as "folders = /Multimedia/MUSIC".
However in the log I can see this (see below). How to prevent this?

Hi hwz, it might be a bug in UMS, please provide TRACE logs so we can see what's happening
