Currently, Roon runs on my Synology DS218+ NAS with 10GB RAM and an external SSD to store the database.
While setting up automatic backups for the database in the settings of the Roon Server, I discovered that Roon Server can basically access EVERY single folder on my NAS.
Without any issues, I could place the backup folder into home folders of administrators or any other user. Even system folders can be selected.
From a security point of view, it is a little bit scary that a third party application has full excess to all data on the NAS.
In parallel to Roon I also run a Plex Media Server. For Plex, it is possible to restrict the access to data on the NAS since it uses a separate user named “Plex”.
Does anybody know, how to restrict the access to the data on the NAS for Roon?
I really like running Roon on the NAS but the unlimited access to my whole data is really something that worries me… basically, Roon runs with full admin access to the disks…
