Scanning Folders

To include specific folders in the MediaBay search, you must scan them.


  1. In the File Browser section of the MediaBay, navigate to the folder that you want to include in the scan.
  2. Click the checkbox for the folder to activate the scan.


All files that are found in the scanned folder are shown in the Results list. The color of the checkmark helps you to identify which folders and subfolders are scanned:

  • Red indicates that a folder is currently being scanned.

  • White indicates that all subfolders have been scanned.

  • Orange indicates that at least one subfolder is excluded from the scan.

The scan result is saved in a database file.
