I just installed Roon Server and connected to it using the Roon application on Windows, but when I went to add my music folder I was greeted with the error “error loading folder unexpected error,” and I’m at a loss as of how to fix it.
The folder is on an external hard drive, it previously worked in Plex on the same PC. I can access every other folder on the hard drive. Do you have a list of restricted characters? I was wondering if maybe that was the cause. I have a lot of Russian, Japanese, Korean, etc. music and the folders are labelled in those languages.
I was just wondering on the Windows device, did you install Roon to run as remote which connects to the Roon Core on the linux device?
You could try creating another folder on the drive and adding it to the watched list to prove there’s no sharing/permissions problems and you’ll then know if the problem is your music folder or elsewhere.
Eidit: is your music folder encrypted? this could cause problems.
It certainly looks like as issue with special (or restricted) characters as Martin has pointed out.
And as also mentioned, screenshots would now be helpful especially the names in some of the sub folders.
You could also try creating a new folder and migrate some (or all) of your folders & files to it.
I did have a problem recently where a music folder was corrupted (probably a record in the MFT) and I wasn’t able to access it or delete it, eventually a disc reformat was the only solution, so, make sure your music files are backed up.
