    I'm pretty overwhelmed here.... It was extremely easy to set up my RAID but it turns out one of the 4 drives is bad. Seems the GUI doesn't do much more than build RAIDs. I've been messing with various commands to remove the defective disk and replace it with a new one. I am totally at a loss on what to do.

    I need to remove /dev/sde and replace it with /dev/sdb after it reboots. When I fail sde and remove it, the array says it isn't mounted. I'm not particularly handy with linux but I can google stuff. My googling has turned up a hundred different weird scenarios but not a hand-holding guide.

    At the very least I managed to undo whatever dumb stuff I did by adding the damaged drive back to the array. It still works but it's getting SMART errors so I need to replace it.

    Ok, I am one step on dropping this program in the "its shit" bin.

    I have several shared folders and despite my ultra best efforts in setting user permissions the software will NOT let me save/alter files in a folder share unless I go into the ACL of a shared folder and toggle recursive permission. The problem is this is only temporary as within several hours I lose all write permissions and have to go in and do it again. I have to do this to any and every shared folder I want to write data too. Coming back the next day requires me to log back into the web console and toggle recursive permission all over again. This is NOT between reboots.

    I upload via ftp under a created username (only have one) and at this point in attempt to figure out why write permissions are dropping I have elevated the permissions of the account to damn near root status. Ideas anyone?

    Hello,
    I have a serious problem with an external USB Disk, I hope I can fix it with your help:

    Until yesterday, I had an EXT4 formatted USB Harddrive attached to my Fritzbox for all kind of Data. Suddenly, various files vanished or had a size of 0 Byte.
    I thought it had something to do with the Fritzbox, so I attached the USB Drive to my omvault device, but had the same issues.
    I than run a "fsck.ext4 -f /dec/sda1" command on the drive. It found some problems and asked me if I want to repair them. (As I did)

    But now I can´t see anything in the shared folder, but If I take a look into "File Systems" in the GUI, I can still see that there is an EXT4 filesystem present and the available size is 82 gib from 1,79 tib, so hopefully there is still data on the drive?

    Can you give me some hints for accessing the data?

    Thanks a lot,
    Philipp

    Once you get the hang of using Docker containers.. you won't want to use anything else. They really are that simple. I practiced w/ a vm install of OMV before installing them on my server.
