Wait until COSMOS automatically scans and tags every sample in it
Move the folder to another directory
In COSMOS sidebar, click relocate button to point COSMOS to the new directory
COSMOS starts scanning and applying tags from scratch
I think this is suboptimal, especially considering the scanning process can be long and CPU-intensive.
When I used ADSR Sample Manager before, after a folder is scanned then changed, it would somehow be able to recognize the folder as “already scanned and analyzed” as soon as I point it to the new directory. Perhaps some database work, I don’t have a clear idea.
I would love to see this feature come to COSMOS some time in the future.
First I want to thank you from Waves for the plethora of great work and effort.
Talking about the subject of this thread, totally agree!
That’s a very urgent change that must have to be implanted.
I’m stuck on that “Changes were detected in your folders.”.
It tries to scan some folders to update them but it seems impossible.
Two days passed and all Cosmos can do is to give that trashy message:
“Changes were detected in your folders” - I hit “Update now”, some minutes pass, and here comes the same message again.
And that’s it.
But the problem is not that!
Many huge sounds samples owners are saying that Cosmos can’t list them (not even 10%, sometimes). So, I think that’s time to check the scan and folders/files management program approach.
Please, don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to sound rude but what do you expect to hear frm me?
AFAIK, you don’t know how to fix that.
I really hope you never know how frustrating is to wait for days for that scan and tha never gets to the end.
No, I did not expect to hear anything from you in particular. I was just sharing a data point from me in the public forum in the hope that the info might be useful to Waves tech support staff. Your issues are neither my fault nor my responsibility to fix.
Maybe I was not very clear but, my first message was about your own message - “I totally agree…”
And I don’t remember to be asking you anything, man.
I don’t know if you’re aware of how a forum works.
I’m sorry if I made you feel obligated to help me. But this area is constantly monitored by Waves guys, so they are “reading” almost every message here.
I don’t know what’s the problem with my messages for you. Sorry about that.
All I am doing is looking for a solution for this issue that is happening to a lot of people.
Cosmos keeps trying to rescan my samples folder but it never gets to an end.
And that’s the main issue, for sure.
I was indeed scanning while I was asleep and the system was idle, with all the samples stored on an external SSD. However, I was indeed scanning one big folder, which you suggested against, the reason being that there were simply too many subfolders contained inside my samples folder.
I’m glad to learn that COSMOS V14 is released, although I haven’t yet been able to fetch the update in Waves Central. I assume the update will show up shortly.
Has anybody worked with support and figured out how to stop COSMOS from scanning unnecessary folders? I’ve followed their advice and divided my sample library into lots of small folders, but if I make a change in one folder it will trigger scans in multiple other folders and they take 20 minutes to re-scan (when the same folders sometimes only took 4 minutes to scan initially).
I’m currently emailing back and forth with support and re-built the database multiple times but so far it has not solved the issue.
