Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but play history is stored in your database. So, as you restored from a backup that was created in May, all your subsequent play history has been lost … unless you can find a more recent backup.
If your library is local Roon will have rescanned your storage locations immediately after you restored your database, so recent additions will show up in your library.
This bit, I don’t understand. ARC pulls its data from the core, so I would have thought that it would mirror the state of your core. That said, maybe ARC is caching data from before the restore … I don’t know.
Hopefully somebody else (or support) will be able to offer some more encouraging words, but I suspect that your recent restore has wiped your recent play history
If you’ve found a more recent backup than the one you mentioned earlier, hopefully you’ll be able to get back to close to where you should be, but I’m also puzzled as to why your previous restore recovers Tidal and Qobuz albums but not your play counts.
A long shot, but I just wanted to check that you’re aware that the Backup manager window - the one where you pick which backup to restore - is scrollable, even though this isn’t immediately apparent. Is it possible that there are later backups further down that you haven’t scrolled down to?
Is anyone able to help with this issue? My secondary problem is that I want to use Roon, but as my operational state drifts further from whatever can be recovered in my backups - this is going to get harder to solve.
If anyone needs any more information, just let me know!
I feel like I’m shouting into a void a bit, appreciate everyone is busy - can I just get an acknowledgement that someone will look into this for me.
