Metadata cache keeps clearing!

Background refresh can handle both iCloud and normal scanning/indexing operations. Plex, Emby, Jellyfin connections wouldn’t use the iCloud portion, but can use the normal scanning part.

Yes, but not everyone uses Samba, and often times people have read-only access enabled. There are also concerns about rate limits from services like Google Drive and Dropbox. Just a lot of unknowns and work to create a consistent experience for everyone, and IMHO those efforts are better directed towards improving iCloud sync and background updates.

I’m not saying it will never happen, it’s just not a focus area right now.
