Why does opening the server web page rescan everything?

I am curious about why the whole thing has to be recanned when I open the web page? When I open it I see that all the directories start with “unknown” initially with 0 files in them and slowly they start showing proper files and folders.

Is it possible to connect to the running server at whatever point the server is at instead of redoing this everytime?

It queries the database for the current status of each folder. It doesn’t rescan files.

Thanks for the info. Good to know.
