Description Of Issue
Currently, I have installed the Roon Core and store all music in my C drive.
I plan to move music to D drive. I search how-to steps, and find the following.
My questions is, when do I load my backup file to restore music data exactly as it was?
I want to ensure I can keep all edited information when I move music to a new drive.
So far, here’s what I think - please point me out if I need to do differently.
- Make sure Roon runs the latest version, create the backup file.
- Disable the old Music storage location (in my case C: drive location), then quit the app.
- Move Music files to new location (D: drive location)
- Start Roon app, then designate the new storage location (D: drive)
→ Here’s the question.
- Should I load a backup file at this step to restore all edited information?
I think that If I didn’t load backup file, edited music information from C: drive might be lost or messed up when Roon is organizing the new storage location automatically in the step 4.
(Such as album images, customized album split, merge etc)
Can I load a backup file when Roon is doing auto organizing to override auto organizing?
Or should I do differently? (such as, start from backup file like moving the core? And not allowing Roon to do any automatic organizing at all?)
