Why does foobar2000 reindex my NAS server on load?

Why does foobar2000 reindex my NAS server on load?

I store all my music on a network-attached storage device, rather than a drive on my computer. When I start foobar2000 it starts with nothing in the Album List - seemingly with nothing in the library. However after 10 mins or so the music all appears, which causes me to think foobar's reindexing it on every load (in fact I know it is from checking the console window).

"You can create a static playlist (File -> New Playlist) which doesn't change until you add new files manually (Files -> Add Folder...).

If you want your playlist to be automatically updated then you need to use the media library. Your settings should look similar to those shown here.

Is your NAS mounted to a windows drive letter, or are you accessing it via \\nas\share?"
