Description of Issue

It looks like Roon is backing up successfully to my Dropbox account, but when I try to find the backup location it says “no backup found”. Also, I have a usb drive connected to my Rockna Wavedream Net streamer, and up until the latest Roon update, everything backed up to that drive successfully. However ever since the latest update, I get a message that says “backup failed, drive not available”. So it seems I cannot successfully execute a backup anywhere. As a futher step, I erased the usb drive to do a fresh start from scratch, with the same result.

I’m not sure if you’re trying to restore from a backup.
If so, have you tried downloading your Dropbox backup locally and restoring from that?

Hi @Craig_Norris,

I saw your ticket and came here to say what @Placebophile suggested.

Were you able to get your backups situation squared away?

I reinstalled Roon on the Rockna and that seems to have taken care of things for now.
