How can I force media-scanner to index a particular folder?

.nomedia file, so the photos sub-folder is ignored by Gallery etc. Is there an opposite of
The data folder has a lot of other files an folders which should be ignored by media-scanner.
The ultimate aim is to have these photos backed up to my Google Photos account.
The target folder is not listed under Google Photos >> Settings >> Backup & Sync >> Device Folders.
I tried creating a symlink from
(...)/sdcard/DCIM/foobaz to the
(...)/foobaz/data/photos folder but get a message that the operation is not permitted.
