What Linux folder to copy to achieve a library backup

I have temporarily lost the ability to back up roon via its backup feature. This is being dealt with in another thread. What I am wondering is if copying the folder
/var/roon/RoonServer/Database
to a usb drive would be enough to achieve the same ends until my problem gets sorted out.

Will that work? Thanks.

@ronfint — You can make a copy of the entire RoonServer folder and that will do the trick. If you were to move to another Core, or restore the backup, you would simply replace the RoonServer folder with the copy that you made.

IMPORTANT — When doing this, make sure that RoonServer is not running. If RoonServer is running while making a copy / zipping the folder it can lead to database issues.

Thanks very much, Dylan. I was able to do exactly as you suggested last night.

Yours,
