Description of Issue

I am trying to add another watched folder to Roon. The folder is on a networked NAS drive. I think the thing I need to do is ‘add network share’, but when I copy what I think is the folder location I get an error message (see screenshot). Given the information you can see in the screenshot about where the folder is, can you please advise me what I need to type in the box to get Roon to recognise it?

Many thanks,

Ah ok, thank you. I’ve copied the folder in question onto my Mac’s desktop and am trying to add it there.

Do you know what I should put for the Folder Name? When I copy and paste ‘where’ from ‘get info’, I still get an error message.

Any help much appreciated!

If you already have copied the data to your Mac, why do you try to create a new folder? Just navigate to the folder the data already is in using the built-in folder browser instead.

Well lookee there - that’s worked. Thanks man :slight_smile:
