I don’t think firefly will get in the way when making a backup of your music dir.
A quick glance of firefly’s way of working:
It scans the music on startup and indexes it in a database.
That database is used for pretty much everything unless a song is requested for stream.
So as long as you’re not streaming a song using firefly, firefly won’t touch the music dir.
Moreover, I don’t think it would matter if a song is being streamed and copied by another source at the same time. Not sure about this one.
So I’d say SlimServer is the one causing trouble. I have no knowledge about slimserver however, so I could be wrong.
