    Posted the thread Which energy efficient ARM platform to choose?.

    Thread
    Many of us, we use the Raspberrypi because of its low power requirements. For a home server, running 5 watts when the drives are asleep is great. Like running a night light. Rich Prim

    A unionfilesystem storage pool only references the data drives and presents their contents as a virtual pool. It doesn't change the actual contents of the data drives in any way. If you want documentation about UnionfileSystems on OMV 3.x, then read up…

    Hi, At one point i needed to mount a drive in order to move data off it and then change it to ext4 and mount it under another mount point name. I had a crash and was forced to reboot and now the system is always looking for the old mount point and i…

    Quote from rickey.mandraque: “Than you. ” Your title change is misleading. dmraid is supported on Linux and you can use it with OMV. You just can't make settings changes in the web interface.
