Description of Issue

This has never been an issue in the past and Roon has run great for me but since the last update I get Applying Library Settings every 4 to 5 minutes which runs for about 2 minutes, even when I haven’t made any changes. Roon will display a loading artist or album page. I’m unable to access anything until it’s finished. It’s getting old! Is there anyway of fixing this?

Hi @fireapple,

Thanks for the report - could you please reproduce the issue and send over a set of Roon Server logs? You can use the directions found here and send over a set of logs to our File Uploader.

I’ll be on standby for your reply. Thanks! :+1:

Thanks @fireapple,

As a next step, lets refresh your database and restore from a saved backup:

  • Create a Backup of your current database
  • Exit out of Roon
  • Navigate to your Roon Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “Roon Server”
  • Rename the “Roon Server” folder to “RoonServer_old”
  • Reinstall the Roon App from our Downloads Page to generate a new Roon folder
  • Verify if the issue persists on a fresh database before restoring the backup
