    • Permissions problem USB Backup Plugin

      Hello everyone,

      I'm having some problems when simulating a "crash" and trying to restore from the External USB drive that I have set up to backup with USB Backup Plugin.
      I'm trying to mount it on an Ubuntu 16.04.1 Virtual Machine to try to recover the files in an event of a crash of the OMV system but I'm unable to access the drive. Ubuntu says that I don't have permissions to display the files in it.
      How can I recover the files in there if my OMV box is dead or simply I want to grab a file from the backup drive from another Linux distro?

      Drive is formatted as ext4 and plugin works wothout problems: I plug in, it runs and then it unmounts the drive and I disconnect it and store it in a safe place.


      Thanks in advance!

      PS: I add a screenshot of my settings

    • Yes. Since I'm not a Linux guru (yet), I open the file mànager and double-click "Extern" (label of the HDD) and then it complains about permissions.

      So you telling me that I should mount via CLI as root? I'll try tomorrow; 23:55h here and I'm going to bed.

      Thanks for the hint!

    • No luck @subzero79.

      Mounted but inaccessible because of permissions.

      I ran:

      Shell-Script

      1. $ sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/extern
      But same output when I try to open it: I don't have permissions to display the files.
