Sync Roon Core?

Hi, all. Not sure if this is the right sub-forum, but here goes...
I have a NAD M50.2 digital player/vault connected via ethernet to a NUC Roon Core running ROCK. The M50.2 contains two 2TB drives in RAID configuration, so when I add new music I typically download it to a laptop, then copy it to the M50.2, which shows up as network drive M:
I've had no problems getting music into the M50.2, which appropriately adds and indexes it. It shows up immediately after running a reindex on BluOS, NAD's music management software (on either my phone or laptop).
However, it sometimes takes quite a while for ROCK to figure out that there's something new on the M50.2 and add it to my Roon library. In fact, it hasn't always discovered new content even after rebooting the NUC.
I expect I'm doing something stupid (or NOT doing something I should be doing). Does anyone have any suggestions?

When you go under settings>storage you should see your storage locations. If you click on the 3 dots to the right there is an option to "force rescan". Select this and after it completes see if your files show up.
