    Emby Server requires write access

    Alright so recently I had a crash because my OS SSD filled up. I run a 60gb SSD (which ive been meaning to upgrade) and I have always had emby store metadata and pictures and such within the media file locations. I also offload the transcoding temp location because at any given day its floating ~15-20gb of usage. I noticed the drive had 16gb of transcoding files for some reason. Reviewing my settings I tried to set my transcoding temp location and it throws the below error: "Emby Server requires write access to this folder. Please ensure write access and try again." System specs: Supermicro X8DTL 2x Intel Xeon E5645 24gb DDR3 ECC Reg mem 4x 6TB seagate Iron Wolf 60gb SSD Arch 5.6.6-arch1-1 Emby I run a pretty simple drive setup, with all the drives mounted in /storage/ with their SD$ name as the mount point: Emby owns the storage directory, and all of the subsequent mount points and drives. I usually run a chmod 777 -R * and a chown emby:emby -R * I have always done this since the olden days of media browser (og user woot woot!) as I've found it prevents any issues with emby downloading metadata and subtitles etc / drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 storage /storage/ drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 . drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Jan 25 15:53 .. drwxrwxrwx 7 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 sda drwxrwxrwx 4 emby emby 4096 Mar 21 13:46 sdb drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdc drwxrwxrwx 6 emby emby 4096 May 23 13:57 sdd drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sde drwxrwxrwx 4 emby emby 4096 Jun 7 2019 sdf drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdg drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdh drwxrwxrwx+ 3 emby emby 4096 May 1 2019 sdi /storage/sda/ drwxrwxrwx 7 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 . drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 .. drwxrwxrwx 1131 emby emby 192512 May 11 07:31 Movies drwxrwxrwx 147 emby emby 12288 Mar 15 18:42 TV drwxrwxrwx 3 emby emby 4096 Apr 19 03:00 backups drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 metadata drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 6045696 Apr 22 07:24 transcoding-temp It appears that new metadata is not saving to media folders despite the checked options (see screenshot) Also a screenshot of the error has been added. It doesnt seem to matter where I set the storage to, if it be one of the 6tb drives or even a local directory, although it will let me put the transcoding temp as the folder above the default location (/var/lib/private/emby/transcoding-temp) Also I dont think there is an issue with the ACL for storage getfacl storage/ # file: storage/ # owner: emby # group: emby user::rwx group::rwx #effective:r-x group:emby:rwx #effective:r-x mask::r-x other::r-x default:user::rwx default:group::rwx default:group:emby:rwx default:mask::rwx default:other::rwx I'm sure if I got drunk and gave it a good 2 or 3 hours I could figure it out but I have zero free time right now. Any help would be very appreciated!!! +Edit 1, codeblocks seem to have failed

    Cannot Add media, Library scanning never ends

    I am on Arch Linux, installed via the AUR. Many tutorials online show an "Add Media Library" button, however it seems to have been replaced with a system that begins a media scan? I do not want emby to be scanning my system, although it seems to be doing that already. I have terabytes of data, including what is on an external device. The media that I wanted to view in Emby is on an external device, and I changed the user and group of those videos to emby, hoping that Emby might pick them up in its scan while I try to figure out how to specifically add those files. I don't want Emby to scan my system. I want to add a folder or specific files to Emby. Anything I can do?
