  1. The folders I sync are on an external hdd and I worry about its lifetime. I know the folder rescan setting. Per default it is set to 600s=10min. That seems rather short. How does the folder rescan work ? Does it really spin up the disk every ten minutes ? Do I have to worry about hdd lifetimes with the default rescan interval ? What values are you using ? If I set the rescan interval to some absurdly high value, like a day, is there a disadvantage ? The hdd is connected to the server which means that I'm never going to add or edit data on this hdd. The new information is synced onto the server by mobile devices and the notebook. But even if I would edit the folders directly on the server, isn't there a notification service which can alert sync about filesystem changes ? There is inotify for example. But I don't know how that works, maybe it's based on rescans, too.
