    • What if my OMV install fails. Will I lose all my data?

      Hi all,

      I have 4 x drives setup into 2 x RAID 1 arrays.
      I also have a small USB stick drive that OMV is booting from.
      I'm using a HP Proliant server.

      If that little USB stick drive dies, will I lose all access to the data or will I be able to re-install OMV on another drive and then give that new install access to the drives again so I can get the data?

      Thanks so much...
    • If you do not store user data on the boot device (only possible via plugin, but no good idea to do so) then you won’t loose your data. Simply install OMV on a new device and reconfigure your system.

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.
