    PLEX - update single library in a set ?


    Hi there

    If you have PLEX MEDIA server and several Libraries e,g Movies, TV series, BBC, Music and you just add say content to TV series is it possible to get PLEX to just update that library rather than scan the entire Library set -- scanning doesn't take too long but it seems like a real waste of time to scan the whole set of libraries.

    Cheers

    If you have these options set then it should do as you wish automatically, it will just update the library that has changed

    First 1 scans all library on changes
    Second only scans the part of library that has changed

    Click image for larger version.

    If you want to do it manually, enter the library from the web app, then at the top right is a refresh button, this will only refresh that one ibrary

    Good to hear this worked for you

    No point scanning everything if you have only added a few things
