How often does younity rescan for folder changes

How often does younity rescan source folders for changes (e.g new subfolders / new files, etc.)  Is there a way to force a rescan (without say, removing and readding the source)?

When a file location that has been set up as a Source in younity has disk activity, younity will scan the disk when changes occur. We use an "industry standard" mechanism for this -- we tell the operating system to notify us when changes occur in a monitored location, and only scan that location for changes when instructed.


If you want to make younity sync right away, all you have to do is quit younity and restart it. It will then rescan the sources.
