[Q] WMP11B2 - Why are songs modified bit changed every database rebuild?

    It appears that when I periodically purge my 170Mb database and rebuild, it
    for some reason alters the songs modified bit and when I go to do a
    differential backup to my storage devices it takes all 60Gigs on the backup.
    I didn't have volume leveling on when I was rebuilding the database.

    What else could it be doing to the files that would require updating their
    modification date and not just bringing them into the database unchanged?
    Does it refresh the album art automatically and have to update the files or
    something similar?

  2. There are metadata update settings under Tools > Options > Library. Turning
    off the (test) metadata settings doesn't block WMP from fiddling with Album
    Art however.
