Rhythmbox thrashing hard drive on startup

Hello there everybody.

so, I'm using the rhythmbox installation that ships with fedora for my music playback. Every time is start the darn thing up though I can hear my external disk (media library) being accessed really hard. I assume this is part of some sort of library self check and probably a check for new music(?).

So this got me wondering on how rhythmbox keeps up with my media library and if there is a way to make it more, you know.. Lazy! I assume that atm rhythmbox just checks every file it nows in my library for `something` and at that also checks for new files and folders in the library directory. So I guess It would be quite a boost in startup performance (disk thrashing) to just skip the existing files checks. Right?

Well, I obviously don't know how rhythmbox ticks so be nice.


I still don't know what a 'grub' is or how many I need of them
