I bought a ReadyNAS Duo for backup, but like to try the FireFly functionality as well.
I configured the NAS however to be a mirror of the drive in my PC.
At startup a robocopy script on my PC, will make the ReadyNAS look exactly like my D: drive , so
1) delete files on the NAS I deleted on my PC and
2) add new files and
3) overwrite files I changed on my PC
(So the D-drive in my PC is exactly the same as both disk 1 and disk 2 in the ReadyNAS)
I copy everything to \MyReadyNASBackupMP3
Now I would like Firefly to stream all content in \MyReadyNASBackupMP3
BUT I dont want any FireFly data in that directory (since the scripts running on my PC would delete these files becuase they mirror my D drive)
Is this possible ??
BTW I know I could configure robocopy not to make a mirror but synchronise both ways but I dont want that.. all masterdata is on my PC.
I dont want to run firefly on my PC because my PC is not always on, but my NAS is…
Yes it is possible. All firefly does with your music is scan and index into a sqlite database.
When the music changes, triggering a rescan on the adminpage should be sufficient to update the database with new music.
