I am going to change my Antipodes S40 to a K30 and wondered if I can simply connect the SSD I use in the S40 to the K30 and have it read all the data? Key reason for asking is that it has my Roon back up on and I want to be able to access it on the K30.
I know some of you are thinking, just make a new Roon backup to a USB, and that would make sense. But my other issue is on the S40 I can’t get it to read my USB stick so can’t do a copy. Any solution to this issue will negate the need to worry about the SSD.
This should work just fine.
Thanks both, would look like it’s should work, but…
Given Mark’s comments re backing up, any thoughts on why I can’t see a USB disk/stick. My thinking is I would do a Roon back up to USB but at the moment, the S40 doesn’t see it.
There are all different types of formats for external USB.
The Antipodes is a Linux device and expecting it to be compatible with iOS or windows devices is an issue.
For the best compatibility when using an external with a Antipodes use exfat
exFAT’s maximum file size limit is 16EiB (Exbibyte) . exFAT is compatible with more devices than NTFS, making it the system to use when copying/sharing large files between OSes. The Mac OS X has only read-only support for NTFS, but offers full read/write support for exFAT.
Also you can navigate to your Roon backups in the Storage folder via Finder or File Explorer, copy them to your computer via copy/paste for an additional layer of backup security.
Thanks for your help on this
