I keep getting this error as well.

I saw that error early last wknd sometime and was due, I think, to the mass upgrade phase when everyone was pulling on their servers - something like that.  I just checked and all seems to be pretty snappy on my end.  Although last eve I was experiencing slow artist loading.  Music playback seem unaffected, but loading of info was slow.  Not sure what causes that.

Would appreciate any suggestions for a fix to my issue.  I upgraded to 1.8 and now Roon does not see my Synology NAS.  It worked before 1.8, but now, Roon doesn't see my NAS on the network.  I can see my NAS with everything else (e.g. Finder), but Roon looks like the below screenshot.  I cannot "readd" my NAS either.  I get an error of invalid path when I try to readd it, but I am typing the right path.  Very odd and extremely frustrating.  Tidal works fine.  Any ideas?

Sorry folks.  I tried to delete this post but couldn't. It is not a Roon error.  For some reason, my folder on my NAS is not available to mount.  I will try to figure it out, but it is some type user (me) error and not Roon.  I thought it was Roon because whatever happened to my folder happened at the same time I upgraded.

Sometimes you have to enter the domain after the NAS name. On many networks this is something like \\DS916.local\Music Folder Name

Thanks Chris.  I've tried everything.  Will try that.  The frustrating thing is I can add other folders from my NAS to Roon, just not the one that has my music!!!! Very frustrating because I changed nothing.  I am on a macOS.  Not sure if this is a Roon issue or NAS issue. Uggh!

@MarkS

It’s a long short. Can you verify that you don’t have and spaces of special characters in that specific folder name ? (Maybe edit that space you have). 

You may create new folders as well for testing. 
 

Also I know from my Qnap, that you must check properties of your folders. 
 

In general my experience is that IP addresses works better than names. So that’s an test to do as well.

Thanks for this suggestion.  

 

I really had tried everything to no avail.  I wasn't even able to delete the NAS folder containing the music and readd it.  Eventually, I was able to delete my music folder on my NAS using the iPad app versus the computer app (iPad app had an "x" beside the NAS folder whereas the Mac version of Roon did not even have an "x"), then I deleted the NAS drive folder and readded it.  

 

As a result, I needed to recreate my library, but that is not a disaster.  I only have about 1700 albums, and everything seems to be coming back ok with limited exceptions.  Once I was able to delete the NAS folder from within Roon, I was able to readd it in Roon storage.  I have no idea what went wrong suddenly, but fingers crossed things seem ok now and hopefully will not revert.

 

Thanks and all the best!

I was experiencing all kinds of small annoyances with Roon 1.8, such as it seeing albums in my local library in one place, but not making it available in other places, such as my Library page, Similar sounding artists being credited to albums they had nothing to do with, etc...

Well, I did a clean installation of my Roon library, did NOT do a restore from backup, and all my woes are gone, for now anyway. I lost play counts and edits, but that's not a huge deal. The edits are few and the play counts are inconsequential.

No electron left behind...

This is a major issue with Roon. Because nothing is stored in file tags, everything is lost. I have major “edits” and it really sucks to lose this info every time Roon needs a new db.

I agree, but I felt it was the only way to make sure I wasn't carrying any bugs forward, and at the moment, it seems to have worked.
