Description of Issue
I have created a completly new data base many times … it works for several weeks or days then stops
Pink faun thought it might have been corrupt files so I have deleted all the files I added in the last year
Euphony ( on pink faun) and JRiver ( another pc) play these all files with no problems
I love the roon interface but this is beyond tedious … any ideas
It sounds like something is continually corrupting Roon’s database.
If/when you shutdown your Core, how is that accomplished? Do you get frequent power outages? Where is your database? It could be (probably is) failing hardware.
How often do you run Backups? Does a Backup ever fail with a message about a corrupt dataset?
Why are you deleting Backups? The fact that you have a complete Backup means (theoretically) that the Backup was made when the database was not corrupt.
Why? If you have a Backup, then Restore from that. Doesn’t mean your database won’t become corrupted again. From what you post it looks like it will, but at least with a Restore you won’t have permanently lost any curation you might have done.
Thanks SG … it does seem like an occasional random corruption… roon core has been deleted and reinstalled twice … Jord from pink faun is very helpfull and has done this remotely … he does not have any other examples of this fault so I thought I would post here to see if there are others
Shutdown is done by turning off pink faun
Going to previous backups has not given stability
( I would have loved to retain my playlists)
Backup is on the OS ssd not a viewed ssd where music is located … I think its set at every 4 fays
Pink Faun plays euphony no problems … its very stable
It seems to me there must be some incorrect file somwhere that is tripping up roon.
I will get back to Pink Faun
Account history suggests you might have another Core available on which you can try to load this database. If so, we recommend you try the DB there; should the corruption or other performance issues return, then corruption within the database is indeed the culprit.
Otherwise, there’s unfortunately a likelihood that a failing hard drive is leading to corruption after a certain amount of time. The tech support team will keep an eye out for your response and continue to comb diagnostic logs in the meantime.
I am not sure what you means by another core for db … do you just mean another drive other than the OS or music drives.
As far as I am aware euphony plays all files without trouble on the same server so I doubt that its a degrading hard drive ( samsung pro ssd) as I have had this problem with roon db for approx. 1 year.
