'Watch' for 'receive only' folders?

Quick question, is it recommended to disable ‘Watch folder’ on all the folders on my backup-server? I have a ton of folders (from different ‘send-only’ clients) that are all backed/synced up on the same ‘receive-only’ backup-server.

What does the watch-feature even do on a receive-only machine? It watches if any local changes were made?

If I turned off watching and set that folder to “rescan once a day”, is that going to be a problem?

That’s what I do.

But I’ll still receive new changes from the clients instantly, correct?

Yeah, scan interval doesn’t affect processing changes from other devices.
