Newly-added directory not scanned until PhotoStructure is restarted

Expected Behavior

“Restart Sync” should scan a directory that was newly added to the “Where are your photos and videos?” settings section.

Current Behavior

New directory was not scanned until I restarted PhotoStructure.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open settings
  2. Add new directory under “Where are your photos and videos?”
  3. Click “Save”
  4. Click “Restart Sync”

In my case, I had C:\Users\Daniel\Pictures in the list, and added D:\GooglePhotosTakeout to the list. The “Automatic library organization” option is enabled.


Operating system and version: Windows 10 version 20H2 (build 19042.685)

PhotoStructure edition: PhotoStructure for Desktop 0.9.1

Thanks for reporting: I’ll try to reproduce this on my box and get this fixed.

I experienced this same bug. I added a couple new manual paths (in addition to the already-working, existing manual paths) but the new paths were not scanned. I tried “restart sync” and “rebuild (slow)”, neither one forced photostructure to recognize the new paths.

Completely restarting photostructure worked to start importing assets from the new paths.

|Version|0.9.1 (latest channel)|
|OS|Windows 10 (10.0.19042) on x64|

Thanks for that report. I’ll try again to reproduce this next week.
