To anyone who finds this old thread, I have *finally*, after much travail, found a real solution! The key was to navigate to the settings in F-Stop and select the Main -> Check for Changed Images -> Compare Image’s Dates option. That alone won’t do it, of course, but then I used the free Android App named Total Commander to manually and recursively change the datestamp on the folder which held all the photos which I wanted F-Stop to scan/rescan. As soon as I did that (a few seconds for 25,000+ images), I restarted F-Stop and voila it rescanned everything successfully.
I really wish the developer would respond to support emails, and better yet add a feature to do exactly this, but in any case there is a solution available (at least for Android, not sure if F-Stop is a thing in iPhone).
I am stuck on this issue as well. In my case, I believe f-stop was interrupted during an initial scan of around 30,000 images on the sd card. Now I can only successfully search for metadata on the images that were processed before the interruption.
I am also hesitant to uninstall/reinstall f-stop due to previous comments about Android clearing out the /Android/data/com.fstop.photo folder on the SD card on uninstall.
Any updates from the developers? Please? 🙂
