Advice on Changing my Core and Preserving My Edits

I’d love some advice on how to make a change in my setup. Currently I have a MacBook Pro as my core, and have always connected my prime Roon library of files on an external HD hooked up to that. However I have an Imac which is running Roon (but not looking at many folders) which has my USB out for audio. I’d like to move the core to this Imac AND connect that HD formerly connected to the laptop, and save my edits, playback history etc. I think I understand that I should (of course have a backup) stop Roon from looking at that library on the HD before going over to the new Imac, but do I still need to restore from backup after moving, or is it a matter of telling Roon about the new location of the library that was previously looked at on the laptop?? Thanks!

Hi Tatifan,
I have moved your post to its own thread so it can be seen.

As for migrating, take a read of the official FAQ and see if that answers your questions. Roon Core Migration FAQ

Yes, you need a Restore to keep all your edits, playlists, tags, etc.,etc.

Thanks…been putting off doing this, but will give it a try.
