Replacing boot drive of computer - Do I need to deregister Roon

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

Windows 10 Workstation

Description Of Issue

Hi, I’m replacing a rather small 112GB NVME drive that’s in my computer with a larger drive. I’m going to be cloning the exisiting drive to the new drive. Do I need to deregister Roon and relogin once I’ve cloned to the new drive, or does it cope with that without thinking it’s a new machine? All other hardware is staying the same.

You shouldn’t have a problem, but if you do then simply Deauthorize/Authorize.

Edit: You may have a problem with a corrupted Roon library. Take a Backup (using Roon Backup) before you do anything, so if there’s trouble you can do a Restore.


Hi @Vollans,

We normally don’t recommend using backup / cloning software on the Roon database, so just to be safe I’d make a backup of your Roon database before doing this. You can always restore the database then on the new drive if you have any issues.

Thanks for the advice, it went smoothly. It didn’t need reauthorising, and the database didn’t have any dramas either.
