Plex Backup directory to usbshare help

Recommended Posts


I'm running plex on my hp 54l xpe configuration but cannot get the backup database in the Plex settings to write to my usbshare2 stick.

Can any one offer any advice as its probably down the to directory setup.

I have try putting into that /volumeusb2/ with full read/write permissions but still nothing.

Have you given full read/write access to the Plex user account?



Only plex user account has admin rights.

Same goes for any channel packages you add to Plex, you have to give rights to plex account.
