    • Create BTRFS RAID 1 - Existing OMV 3 build

      In a fresh build, creating a BTRFS RAID 1 array is pretty straight forward. However, I'm interested in adding a second identical drive and using BTRFS convert and balance commands to create a RAID 1 array, in an existing build.

      If there are a few forum users out there who have done this;
      I'm interested in the effects (if any) on OMV and its recognition (or lack thereof) of a new BTRFS RAID1 array.

      Comments, recommendations, cautions, etc., of any kind will be appreciated.
