ROCK Recovery

ROCK Recovery

Users are expected to try to recover their data and/or reinstall using the web UI if their device is unusable. However, if you can't even boot up ROCK and get to the web UI, then doing a recovery via the USB flash drive ROCK installer is an option you can try. When booting with this installer, an option is presented to allow you to install from scratch or to recover a previous install of Roon OS. While reinstalling will blow away all your databases and settings, recovering only re-writes your partition table and rewrites the base operating system. The Roon software and all settings and databases are kept as they were. This should help you get to the point where you can get to the web UI, where you can investigate further.
