I guess in the ideal world you would have a Sooloos backup and a full native export, that way to reload in the event of a disk failure you would just connect the backup disk to a pc or mac running Control:PC/mac and restore the backup, however after the initial full Sooloos backup the subsequent incremental backups only take account of any albums you add to your library, if you delete albums and think you will never see them again you may be in for a surprise when you have to do a restore, the only way around this is to do a completely fresh backup each time. frown
From a full native export you can do a Sooloos reload for example if moving from C15 as store to MD600 or Qnap NAS.
Or
As I chose, move to Roon where the library is stored in native format,FLAC,WAV etc: and the backup strategy can take advantage of more sophisticated backup tools.


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

A complete backup on a external drive is always a safe bet. I have seen a few power brick failures as of late so hopefully yours pops back to life. If you haven't already, change your CMOS battery which takes about 15 minutes.

Full native backup is the only sensible long term option. It is inevitable that your Sooloos core will fail at some point and it seems unlikely that you would buy another and access to another to do an export later on will get harder.
So, if your backup remains in Sooloos only format then you have an issue.

I would solve that asap if I were you

Just to avoid confusion a "full native backup" is a "full native export"
