Ben here from the support team, thanks for taking the time to write in! An important thing to note, we strongly recommend against using Time Machine for backing up and restoring Roon as it will result in database corruption.
I’m not trying to use Time Machine for backing up roon. It’s just on the same disc which is now partitioned and set up to use Time Machine on half of it. And roon on the other half of it. I’d really rather not use a 1tb thumb drive which I don’t currently have. Plus I only have 1 usb slot left on my iMac that I use for connecting my devices. And I don’t have a usb hub either. I also have drop box set up for roon backups. Honestly, I don’t know what purpose roon backups is for?
It may be a permissions problem. If that is the case, Roon needs permission to write to the backup partition. One of the ways you can grant that like this:
You can also right click on the partition/volume in Finder or the sidebar, then choose
then click the lock,
enter your admin password,
then click “ignore permissions on this volume “
and close the Info window.
