New Rock - Can't access Synology NAS

Intel NUC 8i5bek 1.7 core

Synology DS 218+ NAS.

Description Of Issue
Hi there, I just picked up a NUC and installed Roon on it. I restored a backup from my NAS however it seems that I cannot access the network folders on the NAS. I have SMB enabled on the NAS. It was working with core running on the NAS. Attached are pictures of my Synology settings and Roon storage settings.

As your old Core had the files locally available, your new Core now has to access them over the network. Please follow the instruction from the migration guide linked below.

From Migrating To ROCK:

Step 3: Configuration

There are a few other considerations once your database has been restored to ROCK.


In many cases you will need to re-configure Roon to find your storage devices. This could happen, for example, because your USB drive has a different path connected to ROCK.

If you need to update your storage configuration after restoring your database, please follow these instructions

Make sure to follow the instructions above to edit your existing storage configuration. Adding a new storage configuration without removing the old configuration can cause file identification issues.


Network audio devices (such as RoonReady devices, Roon Bridge, Squeezebox, HQPlayer, etc) should work without any further changes after restoring.

If you previously had an audio device directly connected to the machine running your Core, you can connect that device to ROCK and configure it like normal.

If you’d prefer to keep the audio device connected to the machine that was previously running your Core, you can also install Roon Bridge on that machine in order to make it accessible to ROCK over your network.

Hi @Gerry_Hannochko,

@BlackJack is correct - it looks like you were accessing the shares locally since the NAS was the Core. You will need to add the shares via SMB now, for more information please see:

Ok I have edited the paths and it seems to have pulled in the library. Thanks for the advice. G
