Plex won't see files and folders in external hard drive

Post by crik91 »

Hi, I have 2 HDD drives mounted by DietPi drive manager.
I installed Plex Media Server that can't see inside my external HDD. What can I do?

Thank you!

Hi,

Can you see them in Linux? eg:

Code: Select all

ls -lha /mnt
df -h
And tried browsing the /root directory in PMS, then /mnt?
