Your perspective is fundamentally wrong in my opinion!
There is no 'list of folders that are part of your library'. The two tools, 'Rescan/Add files' and 'Monitored folders' are not intended to provide some sort of synchronised relationship between the musicbee database and the Windows file structure. Having to manually maintain a permanent, accurate 'list of folders that are part of your library' negates the whole point of using a database! And trying to use the Rescan dialogue for such a list is, without meaning to be rude, unfathomable.
When you place a path in those tools, you're just saying to musicbee 'Hey, take a look in there for new files will you'. And when you remove a path, you're saying 'Hey, don't look for new files in there today, thanks'.
I literally have no idea why you'd want to go to the trouble of manually maintaining an accurate list of file locations, just so you could occasionally be able to untick a checkbox to perform what is essentially a 'batch-delete by folder' operation.
I'd much rather just use the main interface's multitude of filters, sorts and searches to isolate the file references I want to dismiss from the database. For example, if I wanted to delete all file references within the location: E:\Music, then I would:
· click search icon -> other fields -> URL (which doubles as the local path)
· type e:\music (or a partial match for the location you want to dismiss from the database)
· ctrl-A to select the results
· delete -> choose 'database only' or 'database and computer'
Just out of interest, how many 'locations' do you actually have listed in your 'Rescan' tool?
How often do you need to dismiss a folder/location from your database?
