NC noob here. I am trying to set up a personal cloud using a Pi 4 and a Seagate external HDD. So far so good until I am trying to configure via the NCP web wizard and encounter the above problem. I am generally new to projects like this so this may be an easy fix. Any ideas?

nc-datadir - Orange

nc-format-USB - Green

Okay all I had to do was the following.

sudo mkdir /media/USBdrive/ncdatabase

pi@nextcloudpi:~ $ sudo mkdir /media/USBdrive/ncdatabase
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/media/USBdrive/ncdatabase’: No such file or directory

yeah I get the same issue here. initially the drive wasn’t showing up at all, but even when it shows up in /dev/sdb with nc-automount enabled, nothing appears in /media/

Same for me. /media/ is empty
