Jriver help ... relocating a library
« on: December 21, 2017, 02:50:35 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have 6TB NAS set up as a full RAID 3TB server. I now need / want the storage more than redundancy, so I want to copy the whole library onto an external drive, deRAID the NAS and then set up library again. Problem is I have a large chunk of tunes where the artwork is saved in a common artwork directory rather than embedded in the individual files. I really do not want to spend two weeks redoing the artwork. Is there a batch process to embed the artwork or am I stuck with a full RAID setup forever?

Is there some logical way of discerning which artwork belongs where?

Does not the most recent backup of JRiver contain all the data?

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound
