My apologies if I haven’t posted this in the right section.
It appears the internal HDD in my Salkstream III has failed (it contained Roonserver and music files). Salk is sending a new HDD with Linux and Roon loaded on it and will set it up remotely once I’ve replace the failed drive. I will be transferring my music files to the new drive as well.
I was reading this in the Roon Knowledgebase:
Step 3 mentions stopping Roonserver before transfer a large number of tracks to the new drive. I have no idea how to do that in the Salkstream. Roonserver boots up automatically when the Salkstream is turned on.
Does Roon actually start scanning the music files on the new drive if I haven’t logged into Roon yet or added a Watched Folder? If not, will I be ok transferring thousands of tracks to the new drive without stopping Roonserver?
In addition to my own local files, I subscribe to Qobuz and had many albums “added” to my collection. At what point do I log back into Qobuz?
Also, at what point do I restore my previous Roon database/settings backup?
The Knowledge base link I posted talks about what to do when moving music files to a new location, but doesn’t seem to address when replacing a drive with a new Roon installation as well as transferring music files and Roon backup to the new drive.
Can someone list the steps in order I need to take to assure success?
