Description Of Issue
I’ve been using dropbox for my backups but I keep running out of storage, I’d like to create a local back up on my Acer PC (windows 10) but I’m not entirely sure how to set this up? Do I select shared drive & if so, how do I map the back up to the laptop?
Take a look at this KB article. The article is about accessing storage locations over the network, but the same concept applies for backup locations as well.
You’ll need to make sure that the folder you want to back up to is properly shared over the network (instructions are in the article) and then you’ll need to make sure that you’re properly entering in the network share information into the backup location in Roon.
If you follow those instructions and you’re still having issues please let me know! It would be helpful to get a screenshot of the share settings for the destination folder in File Explorer as well as a screenshot of what you’re entering in to Roon’s backup location.
