Description of Issue
Backup Failed Cannot Find The Backup Directory
I am having a trouble with backing up to a USB drive. I have had success backing up to Drop box. I have tried multiple thumb drives and most recently a brand new Western Digital SSD. External drives have been formatted NTFS.
When given the list of folders to back up to, I can see the external drive in the list. I choose the drive (select this folder), the folder is “Empty,” then I choose Manual Backup. I receive the following message: Backup failed at 5:46:38 / Cannnot find the backup directory
On my attached windows computer, I can see the Grimm Audio MU1 on my network, and I can drill down to see both my music folder and the roondata folder. I do not see any additional storage (USB hard drive).
I have read some of the other similar topics, but in my situation, I have a pristine new USB drive, not on a NAS, Not associated with a Mac
OK all, I have gone back to the MU1 manual. The USB cannot be used as a backup drive as USB is read only:
This general purpose connector may be used for connecting an external USB
drive (flash drive, SSD or HDD) for extending the disk space of the MU1 system. You may play
music files from this drive. The MU1 supports the following file systems: FAT32, NTFS, HFS+,
exFAT, EXT2 and EXT4. When a USB device is plugged in, it will automatically be mounted in
the system. Since USB drives are mounted in ‘read only mode’, it is not necessary to ‘safely
remove’ the USB device from the system, the device is unmounted automatically when you
unplug it. This also means you cannot use a USB drive to make Roon backups nor add or
delete music from these disks through Roon or the network.
