    • Device not visible when creating shared folder (drive mounted in web interface)

      Hi,

      This is a problem I have seen a lot of threads of, but a lot of them were because of mounting manually instead of using the web interface.

      I'll explain my problem.

      After experimenting a bit suddenly my omv wouldn't boot anymore, so I made a clean install. It's installed on a raspberry pi 2 on the SD card.
      The installation went flawless, I plugged in my 2 external drives, both mounted successfully, but when creating shared folders, I could only select the first drive, not the second one. After a lot of research and trying some things, I made no advancements. (I have almost no experience in debian command line, so I didn't really know what I was doing).
      To isolate the problem, and making sure I did nothing wrong, I did an other clean install, let it boot for the first time without any drive connected, everything went normal. I connected the drive I had a problem with, mounted normally, but still it didn't showed up when creating a shared folder.

      My problem is quite similar to those who are mounting their drives manually, but I only use the web interface, so that is the reason I started this new thread.

      Both my drives are formatted ntsf, and already contain a lot of data, so reformatting is very difficult to obtain. (I want to try it, but really as a last hope)

      Thanks in advance for any help!
    • After having a lot of troubles just to use this command, I thought I was failing to use this command because there is a space in the label of the drive. So I changed the label of the drive, and this solved my problem! I can now access the drive in the shared folders menu.

      Thanks!

      Hi,
      I wrote:
      cd /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Storage/

      maybe it is also possible with:
      cd /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-46784656784644C1/
