    • Configure root folder for share

      I have installed successfully and able to share folder from my external harddrive over network.

      I have small question.

      1. How can I share my complete harddrive ?
      Because to share I have to select or create folder under drive but I want to share my root folder.

      This thing is possible with smb manual configuration. Like

      1. mount my device to /media/MyDrive
      2. In smb config use to configure it.

      Thanks.

      This is not possible by design (e.g. security). If you want to do that you have to create a symlink or hardlink from / into a shared folder. Check out omv-extras.org or search the forum how to do that.

      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.

    • Since when does sharing the full hard deive require a sym/hardlink? As far as I know typing '/' for path in a shared folder suffices to share the hard disk.

      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    • I'm sorry, i misunderstand the former question. I thought /root should be shared. To share the whole hard disk a simple / must be used in the shared folder dialogs relative path field.
