Apologies if this is already something easy to do in Roon, but I don’t see how.
When importing new files, Roon will analyze the audio. As the KB points out, this is a good time to indicate files that are corrupt in some manner. I’ve actually seen this twice: once with a FLAC album and once with an AAC album from iTunes. And, sure enough, the files were corrupted. Cool feature. I even created a book mark on a “Focus” defined by showing all corrupted files.
But, once the file has been imported and analyzed, is that the end of the corruption detected? I mean short of a failure to playback the file itself?
I would be great to see a button in settings to force a re-analyze of all files in a given storage location, with a displayed page with a list of files determined to be corrupted.
Like the backup feature, it would also be cool to be able to schedule this to run periodically.
Now… put on your future cap… in the blue-sky world of Ken’s ultimate version of Roon, my 3TB Dropbox is also used to backup my actual audio files (not just the Roon DB). After detecting a corrupted audio track, Roon auto-magically reaches out to my Dropbox and restores the damaged file.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what Roon could do with the local library in Dropbox, but I’ll stop.
