I ran occ files:scan. It seemed to be taking a long time. I then realised I have a link to my dropbox file repository using the External Storage: Dropbox app and it seems that occ is scanning all the files through that link. Is this expected? Is it a problem apart from the fact that it took an hour to scan and still hadn’t finished. Is there any way to exclude that in the scan?
Corollary question: I added a .MOV file to the files folder manually (the reason for running the files:scan in the first place). The file does appear on the UI now, suggesting that it was scanned by files:scan before I terminated it. When I click on this file though, instead of playing in the media player, it links for download. Might this be because my server doesn’t support playing mov files? A quick google of that issue suggests that the symptom would be that the media player should open in such a case but report the file is of a type it cannot play. So I am wondering if perhaps the files:scan has to complete before the file is correctly recognised or something like that?
