How to Copy internal, ripped music to a USB and Vice versa?

Volumio Information

Volumio Version:2.8??
Hardware: X86, RBPi 4
DAC: Various

I am wondering if there is a way to copy music from and to internal drive (the drive Volumio is on).

I am asking because if I ever had to refresh or default back to the original, all the music would be lost.


from where do you want to copy it pc or?
you could use winscp on a pc, mac i don’t know

Well it would be nice as a feature request in volumio… but would like the option to copy from internal to a USB…

What’s involved?

most people use a pc to copy it from and to sd or usb because that works eazy
and if you want to do it from the pi i use winscp on a pc it’s just drag and drop…

first command to execute:

  • find the mounting points.
    findmnt -lo source,target,fstype,label,options,used -t ext4
  • define source and destination
    execute copy command:
    cp source path destination path
    cp /dev/mmcblk0p2/music /dev/sda1/music

Volumio shares a folder called Internal you can see from any other devices on your network (on Windows you have to enable discover function on network if not already activated). Volumio shares using samba. So, from a file explorer, just drag and drop files you want.
