# Database Location --- #### **Remember to ALWAYS shut down your Roon Core before copying, moving, or accessing your Roon database. ** ## Roon Database ### OS X Core You can find your Roon folder (or RoonServer folder) by following these steps: 1. Open Finder and click Go in the top bar 2. Hold down the Option key (or Alt)(⌥) to unhide the Library folder 3. Click the Library folder ### Windows Core You can find your Roon folder (or RoonServer folder) by following these steps: 1. Open Windows Explorer 2. Click in the address area to the right of the text, to make it active like typing in a web browser, and type `%localappdata%` 3. Find and open the Roon folder ### Nucleus Core - Using a Windows machine, open File Explorer and navigate to `\\NUCLEUS\Data`. You should then see the `RoonServer` folder. - Using a Mac, open Finder and navigate to `smb://NUCLEUS/Data`. You should then see the `RoonServer` folder. *Be sure to replace NUCLEUS with NUCLEUSPLUS if you have a Nucleus+* ### ROCK Core - If you are using ROCK, you can find the Roon database in your [Data directory ](https://kb.roonlabs.com/Roon_OS_Data_Directory) ### NAS Core - the Roon database will be in the RoonServer folder you set up ### Linux Core - If you used our "easy installer" scripts, then Roon's database is located in `/var/roon/RoonServer` - If you ran Roon from the `.tar.gz` package by executing `./start.sh` without configuring the `ROON_DATAROOT` environment variable, then it will be in `$HOME/.RoonServer` - If you have configured `$ROON_DATAROOT` manually, then it will be in `$ROON_DATAROOT/RoonServer` For full details of how Roon is installed on Linux, [[see here|LinuxInstall]]. Some Roon Core devices may require additional steps to expose or allow access to the database or the Logs folder. Please check our [Community Site](https://community.roonlabs.com/) or contact the manufacturer of your device if you're unsure. ## RAATServer If Roon support needs access to your RAATServer logs, follow the instructions above, but instead of a folder called `Roon` or `RoonServer`, look for a folder called `RAATServer` . More information about sending us logs can be found [here](https://kb.roonlabs.com/Logs).
