Description Of Issue

I would like to completely start over with my Roon core installation. I’ve started the set up, stopped, changed locations of music files, rebuilt/restored a hard drive, updated to Catalina, etc.

Are there instructions on what steps I should take to “clear the deck” and start over from scratch?

In what feels like a third of all support threads. Here comes the information you are looking for:

  • Stop RoonServer on the Core
  • Navigate to your Roon’s Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “RoonServer”
  • Rename the “RoonServer” folder to “RoonServer_old”
  • Restart RoonServer

Thanks for your quick and direct response.

Sorry I was not able to find this topic in the Support section, including the FAQ: Managing Your Library and Metadata. If it is a third of all support threads, shouldn’t the information be there?
