Roon's Export feature copies files from your server to other locations, and "tags' the files as they appear in Roon.
Common reasons for using Export include:
- Copying files to a new storage location on your computer (if you're looking to use Roon on the go, check out Roon ARC)
- To make a copy of your library tagged with Roon metadata
- To export a spreadsheet for cataloging your library
- Export to a CSV to import into Soundiiz
Please, note that, at the moment, the "Export" feature is only available on computers and laptops and not tablets and smartphones.
How To Export Files
You can export from nearly every screen in Roon. Export albums, tracks, and more by clicking the context menu:
You can also export tracks the same way:
Finally, you can export multiple items at once by selecting them
and choosing Export from the Selection Bar.
Select your tracks by long-pressing or right clicking on them
If you're exporting local files (music that you have downloaded or ripped yourself), you can export the files themselves to a folder of your choice. If what you're exporting is a playlist, it'll also create an M3U playlist file.
We've worked closely with our friends at Soundiiz
