I've been using Synology Photos but have always had issues with it not indexing newly added photos. New photos get added directly via a file system copy/move and not through the Synology app. Some information about my setup that may be useful.

Device: DS214play
DSM: 7.1.1-42962 Update 5
Synology Photos version: (auto updates)
Photos folder: mounted at boot up via scheduled task
Bash:
mount --bind /volume1/homes/jmathai/Dropbox/Photos /volume1/homes/jmathai/Photos

Even manually clicking "reindex" from the Synology Photos UI doesn't pick up new photos. Neither does manually indexing via the Indexing Service.

I have tried running a script that replicates what the button in the Synology Photos UI does without consistent luck. GitHub - jmathai/synology-photos-reindexer: Simple script to call Synology Photo's reindex API that can be scheduled to run periodically.

Is there something about my setup that could be causing the indexing to not work?
