    Just to say thank you for this forum and the help it has given me. Had an issue with Plex Media server that refused to update and after trawling the forums found the post that helped me, simply by uninstalling the plug in and deleting the PlexMediaServer Directory in /var, reinstalling and all worked. It was one of the headaches when I updated both my servers to HP N54L Microservers to cut down on space and wiring. :thumbsup:

    Hi,

    New and hapy openmedivault user, I have a 1Tb USB disk attached to Raspberry Pi 3 with OMV 3 but I’d like to create a backup copy on a different 1Tb disk.
    What’s the best solution?

    I was thinking of RSync server but, for what I understood, I can sync folder and not the entire disk, moreover I would have to set an interval for syncing.

    Turn the all thing into a RAID system seems, at the moment, out of my ability.

    Thanks for your help.

    So I'm new to RAID, NAS and Linux but proficient in general Windows-based computing. I'm hoping some nice people would point me to certain things to try so I can learn anything considered must-know or at least good-to-know.

    I've installed OMV 3.0.89 and have it running fine with a share that I've successfully mapped as a network drive on my Windows PC.
    Setup is a Poweredge R510 with a Perc H700 (I'll be switching this out for an IT flashed H200). OS is installed on a 64GB SSD and have a RAID0 (2x160GB HDD), RAID5 (4x1TB HDD), RAID6 (5x1TB HDD) and a Hot Spare (1x1TB HDD).

    Current hardware and config is all temporary for testing/learning. Once I have a backup solution I'll start on the real NAS (64GB SSD for OS and 8x10TB HDD in RAID6).

    I'm not expecting guides or deep posts, something like "Try X" or "Play around with x" will probably do...possibly maybe?

    Try unmounting it, and testing it with SMART on another machine. I avoid using USB drives in OMV that are continually attached and running as I have experienced disconnect issues (even more so with USB 3.0). I tend to use eSATA as it is more reliable,…

    Quote from MrT10001: “64Gb SSD is too much, you will have a lot of wasted space. ” I completely agree, but this is an SSD that's been in my drawer for the past 4 years so it's still a better use than an object taking up drawer space. I do agree about…

    64Gb SSD is too much, you will have a lot of wasted space. You could cut it to 16Gb and be fine. Just look for the most reliable SSD's (I wasted an OCZ 32Gb SSD for OMV, only about 8Gb was used after I installed and ran Plex Media server (the Plex…

    It's all for storage, not sure I'll be doing a media server. Might be interested in the future but not yet. Nonetheless I'll look into SnapRAID, having more than 2 parity drives would keep me at ease I think. Extra parity now, increase storage when I…
