    • Can't Mount Second Partition-EXT4 File System

      Hello Everyone,
      I am new to this so help me out here. I used GParted to partition the system drive so I could use the second partition for shared folders and things like that. And everytime I try to mount the partition I get this error on the GUI.

      Source Code

      1. Error #6000:
      2. exception 'OMVException' with message 'Failed to mount '8d2a812c-9492-4c34-b2c2-6a4ccdff8612': mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2,
      3. missing codepage or helper program, or other error
      4. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
      5. dmesg | tail or so

      Thanks for your help.
    • Using the system disk as also disk for storage (shared etc) is not supported out of the box.

      There is a long thread regarding this topic with a brief explanation on the start.

      How to partition and use OMV system disk for user data

      But again, this is not supported out of the box and should be done only by advanced users.

      The better way is to run OMV from an USB Stick (please activate the plugin for USB sticks - openmediavault-flashmemory) and to use your disk as the data disk only (no system on it).

      You also need to run backups, as a disk failure will be a total data loss.
      Everything is possible, sometimes it requires Google to find out how.

      Thank you I will try this. Sorry I'm so late.
