Description of Issue

Roon has been displaying a message on screen saying Snappshoting Database for backup for a number of hours now. It indicates it could takes minutes upto an hour depending on size. But it has been hours now so am wondering if there is an issue?

I am fearful to close the app in case of causing an issue. Do I just keep letting it run? Other than the message there is no indication it is doing anything i.e. Disk spinning etc. Roon is using about 18% of CPU though.

Please advise.



I gave up after over 12 hours and turned my machine off. I have restarted Roon this morning and there are no apparent issues.

Have you been able to create a backup since restarting Roon? If so, the you’re probably good to go.

Thanks! Just done one now and worked fine. Puzzled why it was “Stuck” in snapshotting.

There might be some clues in the log files but, as you’ve now managed to complete a backup, it’s probably not worth worrying about.
