My USB hard drive with my Roon library/backups got corrupted: freaking out

From this response I assume you are plugging in and unplugging drives “dirty” meaning you are not properly unmounting the drive before removal. This will lead to data corruption. You should be removing the backups and watched folders from Roon settings before removing the drive.

Another option is to is shutdown the system then move drive around and power back up.

USB is hot plug but filesystems are not.

Not sure if this happened but noted for sure!

Hey @Peter_Rustin,

I wanted to check in on this thread to see if you were still running into issues with adding a new storage location for your Roon core?

And thank you to the community for providing such great information here!

I’ll be on standby for your reply :+1:

All is well. Restored from backup.
