Is it ok to run PMS while restoring Library?
I recently wiped my media storage volume ( media file only! ) and am restoring movie files from Backblaze cloud backup. The restore is packaged as big zip files that I download and unzip to my media volume. I get about 1 file every 15 hours, and I am wondering what Plex will do if I start it up before all the files are restored.
Will it delete the missing movies from my library? Or will the unrestored movies appear in Plex app but be unplayable until the restore is done? I'm hoping for the latter, but I won't start my PMS server until I'm sure it's safe to do so.
As a side note, I've never done a restore from the cloud before. I didn't realize how slow and complicated it could be.
