The monitor also supports clips spanned over several disk and will automatically search for these in the same monitors folder. If they cannot be located it will try to searching local removable drives.

The latter excludes farming unless the drives has been shared and mapped on all members of the transcoding farm.

Rebuild cache

This button make FFAStrans register files already present in the monitored FTP. Use this if you want to skip existing files prior to starting the workflow.

Clear cache

This does the opposite of "Rebuild cache". Any files registered by the monitor will be unregistered, and thus FFAStrans will start processing the files once again. This is equivalent as "starting from scratch".
