I have Roon Core on a dedicated music server (Antipodes CX) connect to my network via MoCa.
A long time ago I did a manual one-time backup to Dropbox. In the interim I deleted the backup from Dropbox.
I bought an external USB HD to use as the storage location for Roon backups. The HD is hardwired via usb to my iMac. To repeat- the Roon Core is on my music server in a different room.
I need help figuring out how to set-up the external HD. I don’t believe the HD is on my network and not sure how to set this up.
- Must the Roon backup be to a “networked” device?
- If so any user guides on how to do so.
I’m attaching a screen shot to provide more info.
You’ll need to share the USB drive from the Mac and then point the Roon backup to it. This post:
and this guide:
should get you on your way. The share principle is the same.
if I understand correctly the external HD need not be networked, but it must be shared.
I will give that a go.
