I've been a VDJ user for about a year now so this is going to seem like an odd question but what does "Recurse" actually do? I can't find anything about it in the user guide.

Recurse is a computer term that means not only look in the current folder, but also the sub-folders with in. Here is a definition ...

"Refers to including subdirectories in the operation. For example, if a Recurse Subdirectories option is available in a search, the contents of all subdirectories (subfolders) will be searched along with the primary subdirectory."

So, when you recurse a folder in the Folder panel ... the Tracks browser show all of that folders contents PLUS the contents from the sub-folders within that folder.

and although this might be a handy feature for some people, if you have a large quantity of tracks, it will take longer to recurse..

if youre simply scanning to update your search database, just right click the start directory and add to searchDB (without recurse)
