  • USB Backup to NTFS

    Quote from Blabla: “what should we use then? considering that the backup should be accessible from windows. ” Unless you are physically moving the flash drive between your OMV server and Windows, the file system you use does not matter. You can use whatever file system you want if you are only going to access it over the network.

    Sometimes you just need to wait a while, and somebody will help you out. Unfortunately, nobody's going to help you now because you've erased your question so nobody can see what you needed help with.

    Thank you for the list. As far as I can tell, the two options that you have listed that are the closest to GoodSync are SparkleShare and csync, so I will look in to those when I get a chance. As for Duplicati, I knew that version 1 only dealt with backup files, but I thought version 2 did. If that's not the case, then I am afraid it's not suitable for my purpose.

    Quote from santheman: “Ah, that's unfortunate. I agree with you that Goodsync should have given their customers a warning. ” Yeah. I'm sorry about that. After customer support told me that it was no longer free for personal use, I responded asking why the website still stated that it was free for personal use. After I sent that message, they updated the website. If I had not sent them a message asking why the site had not been updated, it would probably still have inaccurate information on it. A…

    Quote from macom: “How about Duplicati? ” Ah yes! Duplicati! I used to use Duplicati years ago back when it was still on version 1. I haven't tried out version 2. Perhaps now would be a good time to do so.

    It's not the software that I have a problem with. I know GoodSync is great. That's what I've been using it. The issue I have here is that they're playing stupid games with their Linux licenses and I don't like it. For what it's worth, I updated my OMV server to use GoodSync 10.7.5.5 today, and despite my talk with customer service who told me that it's no longer free, it seems to be working for me again, although the web UI has a new message in popping up that says, "Number of Users exceeds lice…

    As some of you may know, I am the developer of the openmediavault-goodsync plugin. Unfortunately, the company that develops GoodSync has recently started charging for the use of GoodSync on Linux. As a result, I am ending development of the plugin immediately, and must find an alternative solution for syncing. I have been checking out rclone and Syncthing, but neither of them have the complete feature set that GoodSync had that I am looking for. If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me…

    I am the developer of the GoodSync plugin. Unfortunately, the company behind GoodSync has decided to no longer offer the Linux version of GoodSync for free, meaning a license is now required if one wants to use it. Because of this, I am no longer going to support the plugin. If the company behind the software cannot be trusted to at least give their customers a warning, then they cannot be trusted to sync my personal data accurately.

    Quote from subzero79: “There is a systemd unit provided there that’s made for multiple accounts looks like, maybe more like different users, probably desktop oriented. github.com/matteoserva/MegaFus…aster/megafuse%40.service ” Yeah I saw that when poking around. I am considering writing a shell script that will be executed as a service that will auto-mount my accounts. To push this even further, it would be nice if I could have those multiple accounts mount under the same folder so it appears as…

    Quote from subzero79: “Shouldn’t be a problem, don’t think is easy as download as the pve doesn’t provide any binary releases. Looks like you have to build the binary. Just make sure you mount the folder in a disk already mounted so you can use it as shared folder. ” Okay sounds good. I've already built the binary so that's not the issue. The issue that I'm facing is how to set up the program so that it mounts automatically as well as how to get the program to mount multiple accounts.

    I have two MEGA Cloud Storage accounts that I would like to mount on my OpenMediaVault server so that I can access the files stored on those two accounts as if they were a local network drive. Is this possible to do easily via OMV? If not, is there another, non-OMV way I could do this? I found a program called MegaFuse that seems to do what I want, but I am not sure if it will play nice with OpenMediaVault.

    Quote from seloco: “Never again I will use storage without RAID… ” What about using Rsync? That's what I do. Every 24 hours, changes to the data on my network-shared hard drive are copied to a separate hard drive. It's also easier to manage than RAID.
