I don’t know. However, it is the OS not Roon software that accesses the drive, so the software update is coincidental. The. Nucleus uses Roon OS–a custom Linux–and the drivers are in the Linux kernel and well proven. You could try using another cable or USB port to see if that makes a difference.
Incidently, the drive I use is the USB-C variant of that shown.
Note that you wouldn’t usually back up a Nucleus by attaching an external drive to the Nucleus, that would require two copies over the network.
Instead, if your Nucleus has a second, internal SSD for music storage and you want to back it up:
Attach the USB Disk to your PC, then use the PC to copy to the files from the Nucleus to the USB drive. (either manually or use some backup software to schedule it automatically)
I think he’s implying some sort of conspiracy to make local backups fail so people will have to use Dropbox.
(MagicRobert ~most harmless of all maniacs~)
Any drive should work. Format to exFAT for the fewest problems. Format on whatever computer you have available. (This is not a plug for exFAT in general, but it works with just about everything.)
NTFS works, but it is easily corrupted if a portable drive is improperly ejected drive.
NTFS problems can be fixed with chkdsk /f, but I prefer the one-time solution (exFAT) that is permanent.
I just ordered a Nucleus, and honestly, this is the first time I’ve ever thought of it this way. I’ve been pondering, in advance, the best way to keep the database backed up, but knew a Dropbox restore would take forever.
So, if I were in that situation, I’d need to download to an external drive on a computer, and plug it into the Nucleus?
