Hi - I’m new to Rock, and I don’t know how the flac files from a CD I rip would get to the ROC NUC server? Do I rip on my PC and add the flac files to the NUC’s external disk drive? Or, is there a way to pull them from my PC (on the same network)?
Or something else?
Thank you very much.

Put them on an external hard drive and plug it into your NUC USB. Or put them on a NAS connected by ethernet to your network.
See the Knowledge Base article:

You can push them from your PC to your ROCK/NUC using Windows File Explorer…

I browse to the folder on the ROCK and copy them across the network.
If you rip on your PC to a local drive, you can copy them across the network. You can map a drive from your PC like this:
Substitute the IP address of your ROCK in the above command. I use dBpoweramp to rip my CDs and have this command in the Destination setting to rip direct to ROCK.
I’m assuming the best way to get the music files moved is to copy them into my new USB 3TB drive from my Windows PC?
Success! Based the forums, and other sources I trust, I went to Micro Center (an awesome store), picked up a NUC, an SSD, some memory, and an external hard drive for my music.
The longest part of the “build” was copying the existing data over, but I was watching college football, so I didn’t care. Had it up and running before I went to bed.
HOLY COW - Roon was right - this Roon OS/Rock is indeed much faster. And now, I can actually turn off my PC when I’m not actually using it.
