    Sorry if this is a noob question since I'm new to Unix based systems. But uhh is there a way I can directly read and write floppy disks via my fileserver? The motherboard of my fileserver is soon the only motherboard that has a actual floppy connector and where I work we still have some super expansive machines that write their data on floppy disks.

    So is there a way I can mount my floppy disk like I can mount a USB hard drive or do I really need to mess with Docker or Virtualbox just to read and write a floppy disk?

    And before someone asks, a USB FDD is not a option. Too unreliable and I already have 2 that don't work properly/reliably.

    After my old QNap with OMV 3 overcome its lifecycle i am looking for a small installation for a backup system with one Harddisk, running OMV 4/5 and simply rsync'ing my home-nas providing the backup via nfs/cifs.

    I think I do not have high demands, looked for a Odroid HC2 while having a ironwolf 8TB Harddisk at hand. But in Germany it seems to be sold so I need alternatives ... what else Setup seems to be suiteable? Looked for RockPro64 but dont know if attaching Sata Drives Via USB3 is good / performant. Is a external usb-drive the same as direct attached sata3-drive in the HC2-Setup? ... What do I have to buy to run it 24/7 and where? Is there something else leke the HC2, while i like the dedicated straight design ...

    first, i hope everybody will understand my poor english ;)
    i found many thread speaking about modifying parameters in monit configuration, but i didn't found a thread about adding a new entry.
    I just want to monit with a network ping test if a device is connected or not on my network, and if not, send an alert.
    I thought it was exactly what monit does, that is why i want to add a service in monit. but i don't know which file adding/modifying to do this being sure that omv will not reset all i have done when reboot.
    thank you in advance for your help

    I've recently configured sonarr, radarr, jackett, and deluge. I followed Technodad's youtube videos. It took me a little while but I finally got sonarr and radarr working properly and they send everything over to deluge to download. The issue is that deluge isn't actually downloading anything. I used to to have an "error" message which I seem to have fixed by changing the download directory (hopefully it's correct now). Now the word "error" has been replaced with "downloading" but still nothing happens.
    I configured qbittorrent and I'm getting the same issue. I don't know if the problem might be related to my router but torrent downloading works perfectly fine on my windows machine.

    Here is a screenshot of what qbittorrent looks like.

    Can't seem to find anything on google and the few guides regarding using torrent clients for OMV don't ever mentioning configuring any of this crap which leads me to believe it should normally just work out of the box?

    The system is an old dell Poweredge 840, OMV4 doesn't work on it. The raid is a RAID 5 array controlled by the dell LSI raid controller, so OMV sees it all as one drive, so I don't know which drive has the bad blocks, which is why I was hoping to scan…
