 echo Notes

The echo unit will perform an automatic backup of the iQ.IMS or ReQuest server every evening/early morning. The longest sync will take place after the device is connected for the first time, depending on the size of the collection on the iQ.IMS or ReQuest server. Subsequent syncs are much quicker as only changes made since the previous sync are transferred.
To prevent data corruption, it is very important that both the echo and iQ.IMS or ReQuest server are powered off before replacing a drive in the echo. If they are not, it is possible that the iQ.IMS or ReQuest server will be unable to detect the echo to which it is connected.
The echo takes added measures to keep the file system on its hard drive intact. In the event that an error is detected, the echo will attempt to correct the problem. If the repair is successful, the echo will resume normal operation. If the problem is detected on the ReQuest server, the echo will NOT sync until the problem is corrected, protecting the echo hard drive from also becoming corrupted.
The echo will be listed in ARQLink under the information of the iQ.IMS or ReQuest server to which the echo is connected and listed as a "Connected Device."
If an accident occurs where a large set of songs' metadata was edited or deleted, and the echo was successfully synchronized the night before, the user can swap out the iQ.IMS or ReQuest server drive with the echo drive to restore the collection to the last synchronization from the night before.
