I run my Roon core on a QNAP 253be NAS
The Roon database is setup on a external USB SSD
At the moment all music resides inside the MULTIMEDIA\MUSIC folder on the normal spinning HDDs of the nas
these include subfolders
i just ordered an expansion board and 2 ssds; and i’m planning on moving the Roon Database and the FLAC music to the SSDs in the expansion module
i’m planning on migrating in several steps
Install expansion board and SSDs
Rename Old RoonServer Share the RoonServerOld
Make a new RoonServer share on the SSD
copy everything from RoonServerOld to RoonServer
Step 3 Make new directory FLAC on the SSD
Step 4 copy FLAC from HHD to SSD
Step 5 in Roon now i only have setup \NAS\MULTIMEDIA\MUSIC setup as music storage
so i want to remove this folder and add separate folder:
question is: will this result in a complete re-scan, and if re-scanned, are the music files recognised correctly as before? will they still be identified?
other question: will the stop roon / rename share thing work? or should I do backup / restore?
this is the first time i’m planning on such drastic changes
does anyone have experience with these kind of changes?
