Entire directory trees are scanned only when "Watch for external
changes" is checked in directory properties for a directory. There will
be some checking done when a files are open, but it should be quicker
than a full scan. To manually initiate a directory scan, use "Rescan
directory" on the project context menu.
You can also change the check frequency preference on the Files ->
Reloading preference page. Note that this preference was buggy in
versions prior to 3.0.1.
