Description of Issue
I have this backup error message displayed continuously

This is quite normal as the disk is not existing anymore.
But there is not (or should not be) any backup activity scheduled to this disk anymore

The disk is also still shown when I browse for backups:

So, Roon is still looking somewhere in Roon’s (backup)history/configuration to non-existing disks.
Maybe there are good reasons for that, but I would like to see this error message (and if possible backup location) removed.

Is there a simple way to accomplish this?


is it listed in the networked music sources? maybe remove it from there too

Under scheduled backup you still have a listing for Streamer 2.16 Dirk de Taey →

I believe you will need to remove that entry. the vertical dots on the right → edit → delete.

Your error should stop.

Hello @anon90297517,

Thanks for explaining so clearly (a picture is worth a thousand words :sweat_smile:) the issue you’re facing.

I was wondering if @wizardofoz and @MamaTried’s suggestions made a difference?

No, unfortunately, their suggestions did not help.

Thanks for giving it a try :nerd_face:

I’m looping it @dylan so he can take a closer look :pray:

Hi Rebeka

This topic can be closed.

I have decided to solve the issue the ‘hard’ way.
So I have installed a new hard drive with the name RoonBUDisc, the one not available anymore, but generating the error message).
Defined a new backup schedule on the new drive, and forced backup.
Succesfully deleted backup schedule on that drive.

Error message has disappeared.
Not a simple way unfortunately.

Roon should be able to allow for manual removal of error messages if related hardware is not available anymore.
