I had a few anxious moments yesterday, but none turned out to be catastrophic! The context is I am demoing a Core with internal Hard Disk.
1. I wanted to rip my CDs to a store on my Lenovo IX2 NAS which I had cleared Windows File History from as OneDrive secures my files and needed the space for music. I set up a new share on the NAS with the same name as the Core one and granted RW access to everyone. I then made it into a Music Store and opted for it to be the primary one for rips. Next thing I know the albums etc. on the Core disappear! Panic! So I look at the NAS share from my PC and much to my surprise the albums from the Core are appearing! I could swear that looking at the Core I see the MQ Music empty! The next thing I do is to go into the Music Store and find that it can see the original Music Store so I reinstalled it and hey the Albums start reappearing mirroring the progress of copying the files to the NAS share! So now I kind of have two mirrored copies!
2. Having copied everying to the NAS I contemplate importing one of my small NAS shares created by the UnitiServe on the Core thinking the Core was once again the primary Music Store. Low and behold the stuff starts being copied to the NAS Music Store! At this point I also see all the albums on the Core and that Downloads contains the same files that are appearing the NAS Downloads folder. So the two Music Stores are really mirrored! I stop the import.
3. The playlist that came with the Core did not work so I decide to delete it, being a tidy kind of person. Next thing I know all the albums etc. disappear in a flash as well as the playlist! Panic! I try to see if the the settings menu show the Core Music Store, but all it does is to show a rotating waiting thing everywhere! Panic panic! Well I decide to start by restarting the App and thank heaven everything is back to normal!
I still want to have a NAS Music Store to put new rips in. Can someone tell me whether I can do this without everything being copied into it? Thanks in advance.
