    Yep, and it was helpful. Although I have no intention of using the player, only the server. I didn't find all the steps completely transparent, more translucent, but folks here have been helpful.

    Good feasting to my American friends, even if it is in more limited circumstances. We had Canadian Thanksgiving a few weeks ago, and were able to have family over to feast on turkey and pie, and all the trimmings. Won't be doing that for Christmas, looks like.

    I'm finally getting around to setting up my rPi 4 with pCP. I've previously migrated my music collection to a new 2TB drive. When I did that I put all the music folders at the root, not within something like a "Music" folder; Playlists are in a playlist folder.

    The instructions I've seen for setting up a server drive in pCP assume a filename for the music folder. Is the fact I don't have one going to be a problem? I'd really rather not migrate all that content on the drive to a separate folder, as some elements of my network are set up to find specific things at the root. I can do it (probably have just enough space to hold almost a tb of music data in a new folder, before deleting all the original files), but it will be a hassle.

    Won't cause any issues at all. You'll setup the drive to be connected to your rPi. And then in LMS, you'll point it at the music folder, which in your case will be the root of the USB drive.

    (not sure this is a problem, as if obviously hasn't been for you, but with all your music folders in root, the playlist folder is also within your "music" folder (i.e., root). I always thought I needed to keep my playlist folder outside the folder containing the music folders.

    Just make a new folder, call it "Music" or whatever, select all your music folders and drag them into the new folder, it should be instant.

    or even select all, CUT, then open new folder and PASTE. My recollection is that it happens instantly as @kidstypike mentions rather than actually recopying the files to the new location. This is not changing the physical location on the disk, only the logical path through the file system that points to the file's physical location. (All this assumes that these files and the new folder are on the exact same drive (and partition of that drive) of course).

    Yes, my Playlist folder has always been within my music folder from the very start. Doesn't seem to have been a problem.


    I asked about the music folder issue because the pCP how-to was very clear about setting up Music and Playlist folders in a raw hard drive.

    It always makes me nervous to trust Windows with the logical repathing of a large and important and backed-up-in-a-distant-place data set. Which is why I am in the habit of forcing a copy and then doing a delete. Doesn't everyone?

    I guess I could take the risk if I had to.
