Roon on my Mac 14.1.2 is stuck on “Initializing”

Roon on my Mac 14.1.2 is stuck on “Initializing”. It is using almost 93 GB (out of 128 GB) of memory. Tried to deauthorize but it hung. Had to force quit.

Maybe better to open a new topic in Support? As it seems unrelated to the crash that is discussed here, and you may get faster help with a new topic

Hi @David_Moor,

Thank you for your post, and we’re sorry it’s taken a few days to reach you.

Just to be clear - are you attempting to migrate your RoonServer to this device, or are you intending to use this as a Remote?

If you’re planning on using this Mac for Roon only, then please try reinstalling first, as this will only affect the Remote and visual component of the app.

If you’re planning on using this Mac as your RoonServer machine, then take the following steps:

  • Exit out of Roon
  • Be sure you have a Backup available if you don’t want to rebuilt your library
  • Navigate to your Roon Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “RoonServer”
  • Rename the “Roon” folder to “RoonServer_old”
  • Reinstall the Roon App from our Downloads Page to generate a new Roon folder
  • Restore from an available Backup
