Using Dropbox as a Source/Service

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

Roon Nucleus + 1.8 Build 790

Description Of Issue

My services show TIDAL, Qobuz and Dropbox as connected.
I have moved my computer’s music files to Dropbox.
But, the stored files do not appear in Albums, or anywhere else on Roon.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?


Roon only supports Drobox as a repository for it’s database backups.

Roon only supports direct or locally shared network storage for the music files themselves.

If you created a sync’d local copy of the Drobox storage, then Roon could be pointed at the local copy.


Hey @Steven_Brooks,

I’m sorry we’ve missed your post for this long and can only thank @Carl for chiming in with such valuable information.

I was wondering if there’s anything at all we can do to help now? :nerd_face:
