The Hifidelio MP3 player backup solution

View project on GitHub


The program DiskSync was written by me to backup the internal disk of my Hifidelio to an external USB drive. It has been designed to create a complete backup of the music data and allow a restore of not only the audio tracks but also the play- and searchlists and the rest of the preferences.

Key Features

  • The audio tracks are written as single files to disk and can be accessed on any computer capable of reading EXT3 filesystems.
  • Incremental backups save only changes and therefore improve the time needed for subsequent backups.
  • The program can be operated from the front panel controls. No need to use a computer or network and type commands after the installation is done.
  • Messages on screen are available in german and english depending on the selected locale of the device.
  • An indicator in the display shows the progress of the backup or restore operation.
  • Details of the backup and restore are written to a logfile into the import folder and can be accessed over the network.
  • No changes of the installed software on the Hifidelio are necessary.
