    A two SATA SBC NAS with a slot for nvme ssd would be great. But for me to buy one it would also need more RAM than 4GB and really good software support. Otherwise I might just as well keep using my HC2s like now. 16-32 GB RAM, or even more, would be…

    Quote from bvrulez: “Where is such a mount mounted if it is configured via WebGUI? ” The actual cifs mount is in /srv. Any sharedfolder you create on the remote mount will be in /sharedfolders just like any other sharedfolder.

    Of course. Thanks for taking the effort to explain the obvious to me. (might sound cynical, but I'm serious). For some reason I really thought erasing and formatting would be locked by the encryption procedure.

    As you have no data, just wipe the drive and create a new filesystem.

    Horay. It worked. I still needed some things to figure out, but I managed thanks to your advice. If anyone want to know what I had to do. 1. read the above post, so you understand what the problem is 2. don't try this on anything else than a Seagate…

    The problem with Dockers running from a UnionFS drive is that both use versions of overlayFS which may result in very long and complex file paths. For the same reasons, I won't store UrBackup client backups on a UnionFS drive or even on a ZFS array…

    Thanks, guys. I understand. I did not have Snapraid on my radar at all, until someone at kodinerds mentioned it favorably. I got the idea immediately, which is why I tried it. I may revisit it, but probably just in years from now: I have 8 hot-swap bays…

    If you want full bitrot protection on one HC2, with automatic bitrot correction, you could use a single big HDD and use half as redundant duplicate storage for btrfs. Btrfs can then use this duplicate data to automatically and transparently fix any…

    Yes thanks. I had found /srv but it was not accessible. So I will create a shared folder.
