    The first thing I'd try to do, if you don't have it, is backup. ______________________________________________________________ What version of OMV are you running? (3 or 4?) Do you have space for a spare drive, or do you need to remove the dying disk…

    Just to chime in. I have an N40L as you do which is still running albeit slow. I also purchased a helios4 as a backup. I’m trying to weigh up if it is worth migrating omv from the N40L to the Helios. It’s one of those things I haven’t gotten…
