    "testaccess" file

    I have a few manual syncs and a few syncs configured to run automatically every 8 hours -- nothing more frequently than that.

    But every few minutes while Tunefusion is idle -- not running any syncs -- it writes and then quickly deletes a "testaccess" file to the source or target directories of those syncs (I can't tell which, because the directories are sources for some syncs and targets for others).

    The problem is that I use the inotify file watcher to help manage other tasks related to my music library. When inotify sees changes (like a newly created/deleted "testaccess" file), it kicks off actions like scanning for new music tracks, etc. I'd like to avoid performing those actions unnecessarily.

    Is there a way to prevent Tunefusion from writing the testaccess file, or from writing it so often?

      Problem noted, obviously we're testing this too often, perhaps writing the file is also unnecessary.

      Out of curiosity, does your music indexing software ignore changes are made to a hidden file (name starts with a dot) ?

      What operating system are you running TuneFUSION on, Mac or Windows?

        Thanks, great idea... But I just tried, and unfortunately it reacted the same way to `.testaccess` as to `testaccess`.

        TuneFUSION is running on Windows; my music collection and the file watcher are on a Linux-based NAS mapped to a Windows drive letter.

          Here's an updated TuneFUSION program exe, with testaccess file creation removed:

          Offending routine (testing for appearing/disappearing network shares) was updated to do so without writing anything.
