I want to analyse all the tracks contained in a folder with Traktor 2. Using right click on folder (in Traktor's browsing window) + "Analyze (Async)" only analyses tracks located at the root of the folder, and ignore the tracks located in the subfolders. How can I analyse all the tracks contained in a folder?

Looks like someone else had a similar problem on this thread. Maybe the suggested solution will help you. I can't really say since I don't use Traktor. – Dom Feb 20 '14 at 21:30
@Dom Thanks, indeed it seems to be the only solution (I would have preferred not to have to import the tracks). I summarized the thread as an answer and added some screenshots. – Franck Dernoncourt Feb 21 '14 at 16:34

Tested with Traktor 2.6.5 on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate):

Go to Traktor's preferences and check "Analyze news imported tracks".

Then in Traktor's browsing window, go the folder you want to analyze and right-click "Import to Collection". It will analyze all tracks contained in this folder including its subfolders (and recursively):

If anyone knows how to analyse all the tracks contained in a folder without having to import into the collection, please add it as an answer.
