Photos and external storage


I’ve set up latest Nextcloud recently, with intention of having NC access an SMB-Share on my TrueNAS and pull photos from there and then show them in the Photo App.
While that basically does work, it only works if I once access the folder. Let’s say I have folders per year and month, if I would access 2010/01, then it would generate previews for those photos and be done with it. All other years and months are left out, until I access them. And by access, I mean I open the folder once, it will show as empty, then go step back, and enter again, and then I see my photos.

Additionally, preview generator will also only work on folders that have been “discovered”, as per above. It will not “browse”.

Any ideas how I would go about this?

Thank you
