I5 8 Gb RAM running latest version
music stored on a NAS 218j
all connections under RJ45 (nucleus to music) all players under WiFi
I was unable to find a specific record (Paolo Cafiso, live at La Casa del Jazz 2007) searching on my library under “Paolo”, “Cafiso” or “La Casa”. Results were always related to Tidal
Yesterday I found the moment to explore folders in my NAS and, oh, what a surprise, long time ago as part of my personal way of ordering things the miscellanious records (many interpreters) are under the VA folder (Various Artist). As long as I was using the Logitech Media Server and navigate by folders many times, and VA is before the three last capital letters from alphabet I started to apply a dot (“.”) in front of VA for making it visible at top.
All folders with the dot at the beginning are not visible by Roon. I swear. There were like 35 records “hidden” and unable to find out in Roon search
I have removed the dot ans I have seen the Album section of Roon app, ordered by “last submited” getting crazy adding records to my library
I wanted to share this as something I did not know (maybe all you know it ) and also as something may be useful the other way around… To make invisible by decision some folders.
