Description of Issue

I was trying to give roon access to a disk which required admin privileges.

  1. I started roon using sudo command: sudo /Applications/Roon.app/Contents/MacOS/Roon
  2. Roon showed an upgrading your DB screen, and when it was finished, it was still unable to access the disk
  3. Starting roon normally now hangs at the bobbling roon logo. I cannot access any Roon app functionality to do a backup restore.

To anyone else who might encounter this issue, I had to uninstall Roon and delete the library files. I was then able to install a fresh copy and restore from my backup.
