with this topic I hope we can find together tips and tricks to minimize the risk of corruption and deletion of music files when using a USB HDD as a container for those files.
For example, is it better for music files to be read-only? If so, what is the chmod value to assign to them?
Since the episodes of file corruption have often occurred to me when restarting or after shutting down the system, what do you recommend to do when you need to shut down or restart?
Is there a way to make a graceful and safe shutdown of the system?
This is my setup:
Volumio Version: 2.861
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3 b+ with Kuman SC07C Raspberry Pi HiFi digi+
HDD (containing only the music library): WD 4TB Elements Desktop, USB 3.0 (powered with its own power supply).
