Roon 2.0 <-> 1.8 migration

I have my music system and Roon stored in boxes at the moment due to relocation. I briefly connected my ROCK server to perform the 2.0 upgrade +1.8 legacy downgrade. That went well.
When I start using my system again (in two-three months) can I use a database backup from June 2022 (1.8 ) to restore on 1.8 legacy?
If/when I decide to go from 1.8 legacy to 2.x, can I use the same backup from June 2022 (if needed)?

Thanks :slight_smile:

I’d recommend creating a newer backup, but you most likely won’t need to restore anything to change between these versions. They seem to be usable in either direction so to speak.

Problem is I disabled and disconnected my file library before I shut it all down for packing. It may all be there when I restart everything, but 1.8 legacy is now installed so I may have to restore from a backup. Moving from 1.8 legacy to 2.x should work, but one never knows…

From this statement it sounds like you migrated your core to 1.8 Legacy prior to packing it up. If that’s the case then you’re all set. There’s nothing more you need to do as you’re already on 1.8 Legacy.

This announcement was just to warn those who haven’t yet made the migration, but think that they might want to do so.
