FAQ: I added collections from Tidal, how do remove that content?

Albums from Tidal collections are tagged on import, so you can access them by Focusing on those tags.
Click Albums from the navigation menu to open the Album browser, then click the icon at the top of the screen. Here you'll see tags for the Tidal collections you've imported (like "TIDAL:Jazz", for example), and you can check off the boxes to focus on the various collections.

Removing TIDAL Collections

If you decide you want to remove all or some the TIDAL Collections content from your library, it's easy to do.

Removing A Single Album

You can remove any TIDAL album from your library by right-clicking the album you want to delete, then clicking Edit in the selection menu, and finally clicking Delete Albums. This will bring up the Delete popup showing you what will be deleted, verify it's correct, press Delete and you're all set.

Removing Entire TIDAL Collections

If you want to delete one or more TIDAL Collections you've added, you'll need to follow a few easy steps to delete the content from your library. Be careful to only delete the content you want removed from your library!
  1. Start in the Album Browser, and use the Tags button  at the top of the screen to Focus on one or more tags you want to delete
  2. With the album browser "Focused" on the Tags you've selected, double-check to make sure you're only seeing content you want deleted (Note: You can sort by Import Date to see when everything was added to your library) 
  3. Select one of the albums you want to delete by right-clicking it, or long-pressing it
  4. In the top-left, click where it says "1 Selected" and choose Select All. At this point, you should have selected all the albums you want to delete (and ONLY the albums you want to delete -- please read the warning below)
  5. Click Edit in the top-right, then click Delete Albums
  6. Confirm you're deleting the correct TIDAL content, and you're all set

Note that deleting in Roon is permanent. Make sure you're deleting TIDAL albums you don't want in your Library, as opposed to local files (which will be permanently deleted from your hard drive).
