OMV 2.2.13 will not let me move or delete "you need permission to perform this action"

    • OMV 2.x
    • OMV 2.2.13 will not let me move or delete "you need permission to perform this action"

      I copied 3GB of pictures from a windows computer to a directory in one of my shares (\\NAS160\Documents\dell 1100\files). Now i want to move them to a dedicated share I called \\NAS160\Photos. The files will only copy not move so I canceled the move.
      Now I cannot move (as before) nor can I delete the old files that were copied.
      I get the message

      you need permission to perform this action

      you require permission from Unix User\1008 to make changes to this file

      I am the only user I assume that it has something to do with file permissions (not privileges because I guess those are different things)
      I cant figure this out has to be some setting I am missing.
      I guess I can move all the files back to my pc and start over

    • Didn't give much time to get help. Did you try the reset permissions tab that omv-extras adds?
      omv 4.1.15 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.15 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.13
      omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

      Please read this before posting a question and this and this for docker questions.
      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!
    • Thanks for responding ryecoaaron,
      you are right I was rudely impatient, sorry.

      I have not reset the box yet I was going to go with 3.X too as you suggested in the other post figured I would need to back up for that anyway JIC.
      I have been playing with OMV for a while using different accounts different usernames with different privileges. I think it may be that the files were put on the server by a different machine or a different username so the server thinks those files are owned by that name the problem is I cant remember what name I used in the first place

      I looked for, the reset permissions tab that omv-extras adds? but I don't see that in the list of plug-ins I am not sure how to even add things
      I can SSH in to the Box I can use commands and that kind of stuff. I am used to GUI that is how I have been using Linux, for a little while but I am by no means "good" at Linux yet.

    • On OMV 3.x, the reset permissions tab is a separate plugin - openmediavault resetperms.
