Hi – ROCK/NUC newbie here (have been using Roon on Windows 10 laptop for about a year).
I’m just setting up a NUC10i7FNH – first experience with a NUC.
– I plan to use it with the music stored on an external 5 TB WD Easystore portable drive (which has no separate power, and needs power from computer).
– I can’t use an internal disk in the NUC for music storage because I have a lot of multichannel music and am already at well over 3 TB, and do expect to add more (I still purchase SACDs)
– I am trying to avoid using a powered external drive, for ease of moving the drive to add new music as needed.
My two questions are:
Can I leave the external portable disk plugged in to the NUC all the time? [I haven’t done this on Mac/Windows machines, but here I want the music to be always available.]
When I do want to eject a USB disk from the ROCK NUC, how do I disconnect it safely? I would of course quit Roon Core to make sure it’s not accessing the disk. But what other steps if any? [I know how to do “safe” disconnect on Mac/Windows/Linux, but not sure what to do on ROCK.]
Thanks in advance for any info!
