Hello, I am setting up Sonarr, and currently, on the part where you turn off analyze folders then right after that you need to add root folder; I am unable to find this setting. Could someone in the community help me, please?

Can't find the folder or the place in settings to add it?
Code:
sudo mkdir -p /mnt/unionfs/tv
sudo chown -cR 1000:1000 /mnt/unionfs/tv
sudo chmod -cR 755 /mnt/unionfs/tv

So, what I am looking for is this, the Sonarr we are using does not have this picture as far as I can tell? See "Add Root Folder" I don't see that on the Media Management page?

So I think you are saying, I could just do this via the Terminal, right? Sorry, I am a horse you can lead to the water but sometimes I really do need to be led :) .

Here is a screenshot of mid to the bottom, I don't see it. I only see "Recycling Bin" When I click the folder, I don't see add root folder?

Thank you, being new to Linux I looked up what I am doing here

sudo mkdir -p /mnt/unionfs/tv = using the -p option to make full path directory.
sudo chown -cR 1000:1000 = I think means to give Change owner permission with changes UID 1000 recursive.
sudo chmod -cR 755 /mnt/unionfs/tv =Change owner permission 755 Docker ?

V2 maybe? Try here: Add Series -> Import Existing Series from Disk
Looks like that may be where you do it, thank you; no error message and it kept the folder configured after I click the green check box.

Your probably gonna want to upgrade to v3. Even though it's still in preview status, it's been stable for a long while now and has many more features and options.
