How full should we allow Roon Music HDDs?

General advice seems to be that 90% full is a safe margin. However I wonder if it would be OK to go to 95 % full if the HDD is used only for music files for Roon.

Your advice?

I don’t see an issue with that since the drive isn’t a system disk and, other than copying your media, will be read-only by Roon.


Just worth checking if it’s a genuine platter HDD or an SSD. Slightly different rules apply. Some SSDs now come with spare capacity put aside for wear levelling. A music disk gets few writes anyway, so again not something to be too concerned about. I think you’ll be ok.
