Automatic reading of changes in XMP files?

Post by RobiWan » 08 Jul 18 19:52

Hi,

is there a possibility that PSU automatically reads changes made in the XMP files by other software into the database?

Are these files stored locally? PSU should monitor local hard drives (there was an issue with monitoring macOS volumes in 4.0, which got fixed in build 1448; https://whatsnew.idimager.com

You can always scan a folder manually by right click -> Verify Folder

Yes, it is about files that are stored locally on an external disk. To notice these changes - does PSU have to run if another program changes something or should it not matter?
I'm running PSU Server Version (PostgreSQL) and so far PSU sees no changes. I will test later what it looks like when PSU is running when the XMP files are changed

Now PSU does not recognize itself if the XMP files on the disk have changed. That's a pity, but now..... when you know this.

What PSU urgently needs is a read after write feature. So that the database is up to date after the XMP files have been written. Otherwise PSU recognizes them as newer at "verify folder" and wants to re-import them all which cost time, many time.
