Minimserver can't read files on external drive

RE: Minimserver can't read files on external drive
This is very strange. I have done this with a USB-attached external drive on my MacBook with no problems. My drive is formatted as NTFS. I will try formatting a drive as exFAT to see what happens. How did you do the formatting?

Out of interest, why did you choose to use exFAT instesad of NTFS?

Thanks for that. I had no real preference for the format. I just used the drive as it came from the OEM.

No problems here with an exFAT drive. Please try the following:

1) From the minim icon, select 'Show log'
2) In the log window, set the logging level to Debug
3) Leave the log window open
4) Do a rescan
5) Post the messages from the log window here

RE: Minimserver can't read files on external drive
Thanks for this. The error message in the log has provided a clue to a possible solution. Please do the following:

1) Exit MinimServer
2) Open System Preferences > Security & Privacy
3) Select the Privacy tab and select Full Disk Access in the scrollable list
4) Click the padlock at the bottom of the dialog and enter your password
5) Drag the MinimServer icon from the Applications folder into the list of apps that are allowed to have full disk access
6) MinimServer should now appear in this list with a checkbox to show it has full disk access

Now try starting MinimServer again and doing a rescan. I hope this will solve the problem.

Awesome!

Thank you so much @simoncn. Server is working and the Lumin app is picking up the music!

Greatly appreciated!
