Thank you for such a prompt response to my vague complaint. I will try to be more specific below.
New installation of ROCK on new NUC7i3 with 267GB m.2 and 16GB RAM
BIOS was updated before installation
External USB 3.0 4TP WD drive with 100,000 FLAC library
NUC is using WiFi to connect to network for control and remote using iPad
When I refer to ‘library’ I refer to my collection of music files
When I refer to my library previously being in Roon database, I mean that this same library of files was previously in a different Roon installation (Win10 NUC).
I have had multiple licenses since Roon launched
This is to say that I am familiar with Roon (but not expert) and I am very familiar with how my library should look in Roon.
I am one of the vocal minority for whom Genre IS THE DOMINANT attribute of my library. It is the primary selection when browsing and it is something that I groom carefully when adding to the library.
What I have been able to achieve with Roon is to have a completely flat structure with 27 Genres, some of which have few files others hold the majority of my collection.
What I do not want is any influence from Roon’s Genres – I do not want to know they exist.
So, I have the data loading set to use file tags (for pretty much everything) so that I see what I created with no blurring.
In this new installation, I see that French and Indian genres are presented within the hierarchy of Roon: Western European Traditions and Indian Subcontinent Traditions. Curiously my Italian genre is shown stand-alone and NOT within Western European Traditions.
What I want to achieve is to remove French and Indian from their Roon genre hierarchies and return them to a flat structure.
Is that complete?
Thank you very much for your kind assistance,
