How to transfer a large database from one mac to another

I’m trying to transfer a large database from one mac to another. I have LOTS of metadata corrections so I want to make sure I do this right so everything makes it to the new machine. Is the procedure for doing this somewhere on the forum already…couldn’t find it…just lots of descriptions of clean installs.


Hi have a read of this topic in the FAQ section.
How do I move my Roon library to a new computer?

Thanks so much Carl…that did it…and I successfully switched machines.



I am trying to find the definitive guide to moving my roon server license and database to a new machine. A search of the forums brought me to Carl’s Feb 16 link. However, while logged on I still receive this “Sorry, you don’t have access to that topic!”.

Please advise why I am seeing this, and if there IS an official guide to moving both the license and DB.


Hi Brian,

You can find it here.

Also, check out the Roon User Guide.

Cheers, Greg

Hi @Brian_O_Malley

Thanks for flagging the broken link, I’ve addressed it.

The link was from a time before the FAQ section was migrated to the Roon Knowledge Base.
