Backup from classic Vault

Post by AlfaGTV » Mon Mar 11, 2019 2:42 am

I just got a 4Tb external USB-drive for backing up my Vault content. But, there are no options whatsoever under my Music Library section in Settings?
And no options to format the drive as a BackUnit either? (I'm not so sure i want it in EXT4 FS so maybe i'll just go over the network instead)
But i'm still curious to why backup isn't possible? The App did report "USB Drive inserted" as it should, and it is visible under Music Library as USB in the content menu of BluOS.
I just updated my players yesterday (at least the Soundbar)

It seems that a backup was not possible due to the fact that the hard drive in the Vault had crashed. (Again, but it was a bad drive)

This time i was unable to make it work, and i am in a bit of a conundrum regarding what drive to change it to?
What hard drive will work with the classic Vault?
(Most drives require to much power for the Vault to cope…)


At this moment it seems a hybrid 2.5" 2Tb Seagate FireCuda will do the trick, but it would be nice to hear what the @BLS crew says?
