I’ve set up NAS to collect backups from several PCs and mobile phones. Currently I have 18 Syncthing folders on NAS with hundreds of GB. I let the scanning interval on the default 3600s, which resulted in NAS scanning disks permanently without any pause. Now I’m changing the scanning intervals to 1 week or so and hoping this will resolve the problem.
However, is there a recommended setup for NAS with plenty of folders? What would happen if I turn scanning off completely (Full Rescan Interval = 0s)? And if I turn Watch for Changes off at the same time? Can you recommend this? After all, all changes on NAS are performed by Syncthing alone, and full scan is performed each time Syncthing restarts.
Edit: Most folders on NAS are set as Receive-only.
