Installing to USB - any reason NOT to do this?

    • OMV 3.x
    • Installing to USB - any reason NOT to do this?

      Thanks to the OMV team for a great system! I'm really just getting started with it, but have got a server up and running well.

      My question is this: the motherboard I'm using has only 3 internal SATA ports and an eSATA port which means that I'm really restricted on hard drives.

      Because of this, I installed OMV to a USB stick which is permanently inserted. Seems to be working perfectly.

      Is there any good reason NOT to do this? If not, why doesn't everyone do it?
