how do i select the folders i want when doing a scan

when Plex does an automatic scan for new films, it searches folders I don't want scanned. How do I limit the scan to only the folders I specify

    you can't select folders (i assume you mean libraries) for automatic scans. if you want to scan a library manually you click on the menu for that library (the ellipses) and select scan for files.
