Cannot access / \n I have root access. App does not ask for root access and therefore gives this error. \n A solution is to give the ability to specify the root folder to start scanning from, such as sdcard. I don't think people want /data/data to be scanned and such.

Simple and direct. Love the auto-run toggle when launching the app. For some reason, my Instagram doesn't update my MediaStore of my Pixel 6 Pro after saving stories I posted and this app helps. No clutter either unlike other apps

This app is really helpful if your google photos is not showing pictures that are in the camera folders. Run this and then go to google photos and it shows the new pics and videos immediately, especially if you have pushed a lot of files through your computer.
