After digging through the (amazing) community posts I’m still only 85% sure I know the answer so,
will Roon scan folders that are inside scanned folders? eg I have a drive attached to the NUC’s USB-C. That drive has a folder with music, some folders have folders, per the screen shot.
Do I have to manually move everything out of folders to be scanned?
Yes it will scan everything below the Music folder and use the metadata to help populate the database. I have folders Like Google, Amazon and Apple my shamefully large collection of MP3 files.
Nothing to be ashamed of at all. Just audiophile snobbery.
Down to under 20% of my library.
It’s the years of Emusic downloads that get me, as some can be 160kb and they are just bad. I can mostly listen to 256KB and 320KB is great.
Slowly replacing the bad one’s
