I finally found a media scanning app that is fast, properly logs what it is doing, and actually works on the latest Android version. Downside: Does not remove stale entries from the media store, at least when the folder has been deleted. Works fine for adding new files.

Used to work. Doesn't since recent update. Scan on startup no longer happens. Hit "start scan" and nothing happens.

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.
