Thanks for the help. The problem continues, I can’t use the Samsung 970 EVO that I bought expressly to store data for Roon. Nor can I use a LaCie drive, where previously I stored my library on Ubuntu for last couple of years.
I chmod 777 everything early on. Folders and all subs set to “drwxrwxrwx+” so permissions issue seem unlikely.
Plex and Swinsian can index and play music on all drives. And every other Mac app I use can access data on these drives.
The external drives are not shared, but the server is running on same Mac. The SanDisk drive that is also working is not shared, it is connected by USB. Mounted as /Volumes/MusicSSD and shown in Disk Utility as MusicSSD in picture.
Do I really need to use an SMB share vs a file system path to access external drives that are directly connected using USB to the same Mac? That doesn’t make sense to me, nor is it required for SanDisk.
Nor was that required on my Ubuntu server, You just navigate to folder and tell it to “use this”.
Thanks for your patience while our team took a closer look into your account. We’re seeing a few different errors popping up, one of which seems to be recurring in regard to this subfolder:
Could you temporarily move this subfolder to another location, and let me know if you continue to run into issues? With that, it would be good to refresh your Roon database as well. Steps to follow below:
I removed a non-resolving symbolic link called “plex” and the scan finished.
Seems like better default behavior would be to skip subdirectories with fatal errors rather than stoping the entire scan. Also, the error message specific to actual problem directory should be exposed to user.
In any case, thanks, things seem to be working again.
