When I want to export a FLAC copy of a CD ripped to Sooloos I use the Export tab on the Album Details pop-up, click "Mark All" to select the tracks and let Sooloos do its thing.

But what about doing a full export of all the albums?

It seems that I should follow the sequence: Export - New Export Destination - Folder (Native Format) - Add Folder Destination

Does selecting the tick-box "Export All Sooloos Tracks and Playlists to this Repository" do literally that? Or do I have to somehow select the tracks in every album?

I propose to do this process writing to an HDD attached to a laptop (with sleep mode disabled) which is attached to the same dumb switch as the MD600, i.e. the same setup as for doing a full backup.

My Sooloos storage utilisation at the moment is 941 GB; will a 4Tb HDD be sufficient?

I assume this will take a few days to complete?

Any other thoughts or guidance?

After you have set up an export destination go back to viewing albums and then edit the album, then you should be able to select export and then you select (tick) all the tracks and they will be exported to the export destination you set earlier.
This is all from memory so I may have forgotten a step? It’s been a long while since I did this.

Thanks Russ - I've got it working for one-off exports without problems.

It is the full database export for which I needed clarification. The implication is that the "Export All Sooloos Tracks and Playlists to this Repository" tick-box is sufficient and that I don't need to select individual albums and tracks (which would be a monster task).

Yes you are correct, just tick export all, no need to select albums individually export time is roughly 90 seconds per album assuming you have a 100mbit network connection between devices so for your library between 2 to 2 1/2 days, your 4tb disk will be more than sufficient.

A couple of things to ensure first.

1 The pc is connected via Ethernet not WiFi?
2 You ensure the pc does not ‘sleep’ use one of the many free utilities available or run a small video file on endless loop, setting no sleep in Windows control panel never seemed to work for me for some reason?

Be prepared for the export to stall, this is not an issue as restarting it will continue from where it left off.

Gianni you are over your PM limit.

In my experience it never worked exporting across a network ( eg to a NAS).

The tagtool.exe which operates with export just doesn’t work very well at all over the network.

Attached device was the only way I could get speeds like @ratbert mentions above.

+1. I always had the most success exporting to a USB drive connected to the PC.
