Scrape some media

Since version beta 11 you can only scrape missing media (artworks) by checking Missing media only (formerly Without Artwork only) in the Scrape Options tab. Only missing media (artworks), checked in the Images options tab will be recovered.
In the scrape engines, only these missing media (artworks) will be presented and selectable.
See: Scrape only missing Artworks (media)

It is possible to scrape only certain media without touching the existing Mixes
